Doug says owning a Ferrari won't help get you laid. I say that if that's the case, you're just driving the wrong Ferrari. Steve McQueen had this 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, and he got laid all the time. And now, so can you!
I suppose it could be argued that McQueen was popular with the ladies because he was a good-looking, wealthy, famous movie star with impeccable style who also drove race cars for fun. But maybe it as just the Ferrari.
Now's your chance to find out. McQueen's Ferrari is headed to the RM Auction at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in August. The car has been fully restored (which included putting a roof back on after some suckafool lopped it off) and certified by Ferrari, and recently spent time as the centerpiece at the Museo Ferrari in Italy.
Our pals at Road & Track say McQueen ordered this Ferrari to his own custom specifications in 1967 and picked it up the following year while filming Bullitt. They estimate it could go for $8.5 million or more when it crosses the auction block later this year.
