Steve McQueen's Porsche from LeMans set for Monterey sale

| |

The 1970 Porsche 911S once owned by Steve McQueen and featured in his movie Le Mans will be auctioned August 19-20 at Monterey Auto Week by RM Auctions.

Built to 1970 specification, complete with air conditioning and a full complement of factory options, the Slate Grey 911S stars in the film’s opening sequence. McQueen’s character, Michael Delaney, drives through the French countryside, reflecting on life, death, and racing.

The Porsche 911S was also used as McQueen’s personal transport during the movie’s production, later joining his own stable of motor cars in California. The collection included a Jaguar XK-SS, multiple Ferraris, Porsches, airplanes and motorcycles.

“There is no more iconic racing film than “Le Mans” and no more charismatic owner of many of the world’s great sports cars than Steve McQueen,” said Rob Myers, Chairman and Founder of RM Auctions.

“We are delighted to have been selected to present this iconic car at our upcoming Monterey sale. Combining a well-documented history with an exciting celebrity and screen provenance, it will make for a valuable addition to any notable car collection.”
