Steve McQueen’s Ferrari gets double

Steve McQueen

Steve McQueen’s 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso was sold at auction by Christie’s the other day in California for an incredible $2.3 million.

In a previous post, I wrote that the car expected to fetch between $800,000 and $1.2 million.

This Lusso was one of only 350 made. McQueen kept it until 1973 when he traded it in for another Ferrari.

With so few of these cars available to collectors in addition to it’s movie star appeal no doubt contributed to the high auction price.
