Zoolander’s 1964 Fiat 500D Limousine for Sale

Back in 2001, a series of short films created for the VH1 Fashion Awards television specials in 1996 and 1997 turned into the movie known as Zoolander. The flic sold enough tickets to prompt Stiller to make a comeback as VH1's three time male model of the year in 2016.

For this most recent movie, one of Fiat's 1964 500D models got stretched beyond recognition into a limousine, to be used by Stiller and Owen Wilson for their exploits in Rome, Italy.

Somehow, a guy named Franco Cavaliere from a company with no website called Italian Classic Cars got hold of it and has been trying to find it a suitable home for a few months now on various specialized websites, including Car and Classic. So if you like to get your hands on the car and chop it up, here’s your chance.

Unfortunately for Franco, Zoolander was not such a big movie as to create a die hard fanbase willing to pay a fortune for it. And a fortune he asks, as the car is priced at £46,500, including “delivery to your front door in the UK” and Europe. Via container, everywhere else.

Franco describes the car as being a “real work of art.” While referring to it as a she, he tells the world how the limo was “custom built for the movie here in Abruzzo, where she was first registered and has remained here ever since.”

“650cc with syncro gearbox. She can keep up with modern day traffic no problem!!” Franco adds.

Despite the flamboyant description and impossible price, the Italian man himself doesn’t seem very sure what to sell on the said websites. Bored of having to describe the 500D, he goes on to let the world know he also has a “a private residence villa B&B del Castello di Popoli Abruzzo that sleeps 20.” You know, in case you want to visit Italy and have a sleepover at some shady guy's house.

As for a certificate of authenticity or other important documents, well, you’ll have to take Franco's word on it. After all, how many original Fiat 500s have you seen out there to measure four meters long?
