Steve McQueen's Brown Ferrari on Auction Block
Last week at an auction at the Monterey Jet Center in Monterey, CA, a Ferrari previously owned by actor Steve McQueen was won by an unnamed phone bidder. It was a 1963 Ferrari Berlinetta Lusso that McQueen had had restored and custom painted a unique shade of metallic brown. He reportedly drove it as his primary vehicle for almost 4 years, until he got a new Ferrari that took its place. The car was expected to go for around $1 million, but after some "spirited bidding" the final sale ended up at $2.3 million.
