Little known facts from the film:

The Ferraris used for the production of the film were not real Ferraris at all (Obviously they would not destroy a real one). They were all fiberglass bodies built on three Ford Mustang chassis.....so there were, in fact, three different cars used in the movie. One was for normal driving scenes, one had a beefed-up suspension and was used for the "airborne" scene where the two garage attendents were enjoying their 'stolen ride', and the third car was just wheels and a body (Used for the heart-breaking plunge out the garage window. Actually, when the car fell out the window the hood broke into two pieces (Fiberglass) and it was covered up by the producers with branches and leaves. The producers looked into getting a real 250GT California for a few of the scenes but discovered the insurance costs (just for keeping a real one on the movie set) were way out the their budget. The Ford Mustang/Ferraris were terrible to drive too; they would have to repeat certain scenes over and over again because the cars wouldn't start.

I thought that there were both LWB and SWB replicas in the movie, is that true?

Short Wheelbase, as opposed to LWB, or Long Wheelbase.
