Raul Julia's Ferrari Daytona Spyder from The Gumball Rally...

The Gumball Rally was one of the earliest cross-country themed race movies. In the 1976 comedy, Raul Julia, drove this 1972 Ferrari as 'Franco Bertollini', an Italian Grand Prix champion and incurable romantic.

One of only 120 built the Ferrari 365gts/4 'Daytona' Spyder was the ideal choice for the actor playing an international playboy during the 1970's.

Portraying a reckless Italian, Raul Julia plucked the rear-view mirror from the windshield in the film because "what's behind...is not important".

  1. Does anybody know where the 'gumball machine' trophy is from the Gumball Rally movie?

    Or any of the other movie props, i.e. patch identified jackets?
