Steve McQueen’s Ferrari 275 GTB/4 makes £6m

Published 18 August 2014

An ex-Steve McQueen 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 made history on Saturday when it sold for $10,175,000 (£6,081,516).

Supplied new to Hollywood icon on the set of Bullitt, the 275 GTB/4 was the subject of spirited bidding from the room and on the phone.

But, believe it or not, it wasn’t the most expensive car sold at RM’s Monterey sale – that honour went to a 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale, one of just three built.
