Fans of Steve McQueen will soon have the opportunity to descend upon one of his cars at auction. A 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 once owned by the legend will hit the block at RM Auctions this August and is expected to net around $9 million. The auction is to be held in Monterey and there will be plenty of other stars and cars present.
The Ferrari 275 GTB/4 has been lovingly cared for and displayed at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello for the past year, but her very first owner was Steve McQueen. McQueen took delivery of the car in 1967 while filming the movie “The Thomas Crown Affair”. The car was gold at the time of delivery, and he had it painted that signature Ferrari red and added a few mods here and there to make her sexier. When he grew tired of her in 1971, McQueen sold the car to actor Guy Williams of Zorro. The rare Ferrari then went through a few owners before undergoing a complete restoration in 2010.
