Two Former Steve McQueen Cars At Auction

by Mike – 

How many classic cars did Steve McQueen own? It seems like every year another one comes up for sale. Now RM Auctions has two up for auction in Monterey this year.

The first is a 1953 Siata 208/S Spider that I have photographed and written about before here and here.

RM’s summary:

– Legendary “8V” power with rare, attractive and desirable spyder coachwork
– Multiple concours awards; shown at The Quail, twice at Pebble Beach and part of an extended exhibit at the Petersen Museum
– In excellent condition, a superb event entry, eligible for the Mille Miglia

The other former McQueen car is a 1970 Porsche 911S “Le Mans” Movie Car.

RM’s summary:

– Delivered new to Steve McQueen on the set of the iconic motorsport movie Le Mans
– Highest available specification offered by Porsche for street models
– Invoiced and assigned by the Property Master for use during filming and for McQueen’s personal use
– Four owners from new, including McQueen’s personal collection in California
– Excellent in highly original preserved condition
– Well documented with invoices and correspondence corroborating absolute authenticity

RM has not published a price estimate yet on either car but I suspect they will be expensive.

I always preview the RM cars at Monterey but I may have to attend the auction this year.
