Classic race cars once owned by Steve McQueen can fetch millions of dollars at auction and the latest car from his collection that’s up for sale is likely to continue the tradition. Last August a 1963 Ferrari Berlinetta Lusso once owned by McQueen sold for $2.31 million. Promoters of a 1970 908/2 Porsche race car driven by the actor in the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1970 and then again in the 1971 movie Le Mans are expecting an even greater sum for the car at the upcoming Bonhams & Butterfields auctions in Monterey.

During the famous 12 Hours of Sebring race, McQueen came second to fellow legend Mario Andretti and the event is still considered one of the best endurance races ever. As the story goes, McQueen bought the car specifically for the race and recruited Formula 1 driver Peter Revson as his co-driver. He was in the lead until the last laps when he was overtaken by Andretti in a Ferrari.

The 908/2 is powered by a 3.0L eight-cylinder boxer engine that produces about 350hp and can reach speeds in excess of 200mph thanks to its light 1,400 pound kerb weight. The car will be sold by Bonhams & Butterfields at the start of the Pebble Beach Concours.
