A NEW World Record Price at Auction ~ In the Making

The Ferrari 275GTB/4 is a legendary motorcar, racing car, and collector car.  Steve McQueen is a legendary actor, man, car collector and about as legendary as guys get, I think.  Considering this reality, the upcoming auction of Steve's personal 275GTB/4 will be an event of very notable proportions - and I probably do not have to go too far out on a limb to say there is significant potential for a NEW world record price for this model at auction - and maybe more.  This will definitely be one not to miss - the electricity will be amazing I'm sure.
