The Chicago-area home where Ferris Bueller's friend Cameron famously "killed" his father's prized Ferrari finally has a new owner.

Crain's Chicago Business reports that the modernist home in Highland Park sold Thursday for $1.06 million.

The sleek house was featured in John Hughes' 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off as the home of Cameron Frye, played by Alan Ruck. 

Craig Hogan is regional director at Coldwell Banker Previews. He wouldn't say who bought the four-bedroom, steel-and-glass house built on the edge of a wooded ravine.

The house, built in 1953 by Mies van der Rohe-protege A. James Speyer, was first put on the market in 2009 listed at $2.3 million.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom, metal and glass house is best known for the scene when Frye bucked against his father's oppressive manner by literally kicking his father's vintage Ferrari off a jack and through the floor to ceiling glass in the home's pavilion.

After the Ferrari crashes through the glass into the ravine, Ferris tells Cameron: "You killed the car."​
