Remember the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off ? It was out on in June 1986 and was basically about a high school senior who skips school to hang out with his girlfriend and best friend in downtown Chicago.
More important than the plot was a supporting cast in the movie. It did not have any dialogues or much action but it did have an important role which is still talked about till this very day - among movie fans at least. A 1961 Ferrari GT California.
In the movie the car was a trophy of Cameron Frye's dad. He loved it more than life itself and it was kept in a pristine garage with a full set of tools and clocked a limited mileage - after three years of careful restoration.
Of course none of this mattered to the protagonist and took the car out for a spin. And anyone who watched the movie knew the fate of the car.
Anyway, like the movie, Holger Schubert, an architect by profession loves his Ferrari BB512i. He considers it a work of art and loves the minimalist but perfect lines of the car. He likes the car so much he created a Zen meets Apple store like garage and workspace around the car.
The car is the centrepiece of the garage/workplace and lays on a pedestal with minimal distraction between Schubert, his work and his car.
After watching the video by Petrolicious, I got instantly reminded of two things. One was the above mentioned movie and the California which was housed in a similarly designed garage.
The other is the review of Alfa Romeo 8C by Jeremy Clarkson couple of seasons ago where he insisted a car can be a work of art.
So what do you guys think, can cars like the 8C or either of the two Ferrari's be a work of art? Or is Schubert just overly attached to his car? If you had money and resources, would you do the same?
