Movies may soon be made with some of the financing hedged against the sale of the props.

After being a highly desirable race-bred car in its youth, this car was purchased by Walt Disney Studios for use in the 1966 film "The Love Bug". The Ferrari subsequently fell on hard times, and quite remarkably for a car now in the 100 most valuable in the world, was reportedly abandoned on the Hollywood Freeway at one stage during the seventies. Redemption eventually came, and the story can be read in great detail on the official RM Auctions page.
