Driving Steve McQueen’s Ferrari 275 GTB/4: Video
Fetching over $10 million in 2014, the red 275 GTB above is no "ordinary" rare Ferrari (one of only 280 units made), since it belonged to none other than the "king of cool," Steve McQueen. Apparently, the car was owned by him during the period he was filming Bullit in San Francisco, the movie for which he also did most of the stunt driving. The folks at The Aficionauto were tasked by RM Auctions with shooting a video of the rare 275 GTB in 2014, and the footage above was the original opening scene for the auctioned car.
Sadly, it was turned down by RM Auctions and didn’t make the final cut, but The Aficionauto kept the video and recently uploaded it for your enjoyment. There is little music, most of the sounds coming from the 3.3-liter V-12 as it purrs along one of the most scenic roads in the U.S. — the famed Mullholand Drive.
The car was restored from the ground up by Ferrari Classiche in Italy, after one of its previous owners had chopped off the roof and painted it yellow for some unknown reason. Its current condition is obviously top notch, which is one of the reasons it’s worth so much.
