As previously stated on this blog, RM Auctions had announced that Steve McQueen’s 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 would cross their auction block in August. All previous expectations were surpassed when McQueen’s vintage Ferrari took in a rather respectable $9.25 million. Celebrity cars always generate excitement at auction, including those celebrities with Hollywood ties. McQueen is not just a Hollywood icon; his name will always be associated with speed and fast cars.
McQueen was in possession of this 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 for four years before the vehicle was sold to a couple that have done an amazing job of preserving this piece of Hollywood history to include a complete restoration of the GTB/4 that was completed just a few years ago.
