Apparently it was not an actual Ferrari:|
"Cameron's father's Ferrari wasn't a real Ferrari. Because it was too expensive to rent one, they made three fake ones with a fiberglass body."
"When the Ferrari crashed, the fiberglass hood ripped, but branches were put over the rip to make sure the camera didn't record it."
"The 1961 Ferrari GT250 was a modified MG sports car. The producers received several angry letters from car enthusiasts who believed the car shown was a *real* Ferrari and that it was actually wrecked in the film."
Some more trivia on what the Ferraris were supposed to be though:
"The Car" in the movie was a Ferrari 250GT California Spyder, of which 104 were produced. This version of Ferrari's already famous 250 series was designed specifically for the American market, featuring only two seats, a convertible top, and more horsepower than in its standard European trim."
"The car parked to the left of the Ferrari in the garage is also an MG, in this case an MG TC."
