1970 Porsche 911S Le Mans movie car, ex Steve McQueen
Sold for £842,000 ($1.37m)
Captain cool's old Porsche, which played a starring role in the iconic motorsport movie Le Mans, featured alongside his epic personal collection of motors that included a Porsche 356 Speedster, a Jaguar XK-SS, a Ferrari 250 GT Lusso Berlinetta and ‘a host of Von Dutch customised utility vehicles'. Bit of a wheels man, was Steve.
Barring a repaint, some new shocks, reupholstered front seats and a new windscreen, the car is totally original. It hasn't rusted, has never been wrecked, wears original Fuchs alloys and comes with that 2.2-litre, 200bhp flat-six engine. Classic.
