Steve McQueen’s Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Heads to Auction

Steve McQueen’s Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Heads to Auction

It’s doubtful that any man had as much masculine taste in clothes, watches, motorcycles, and cars as the late Steve McQueen. This Ferrari 275 GTB/4 once owned by the King of Cool is just more evidence of that. The front-engined grand tourer will go up for auction via RM Sotheby’s this summer, and it’s expected to fetch serious money due to its provenance and famous owner. Under the long and shapely hood of the Scaglietti-design is a 3.3-liter Colombo V12 engine good for 300 horsepower. It’s a rather unique car, having been repainted in stunning Chianti Red (over the original gold paint) and then fitted with the wheels and wing mirror from his convertible Ferrari 275 GTB/4 that he had crashed. This very car was restored to perfection by Ferrari Classiche between 2010 and 2013. It sold for $10 million at RM Sotheby’s flagship Monterey sale back in August 2014, and it should fetch a hefty sum when it hits the auction block again this August.
