Artcurial brings Steve McQueen back to Le Mans

It’s an irresistible combination: the speed and glory of Le Mans, a film star envied by men and adored by women, the evocative orange and powder blue colours of the Gulf livery…

No wonder that memorabilia linked with Steve McQueen’s appearance in the seminal 1971 film ‘Le Mans’ are in huge demand – and where better to acquire them than at the legendary circuit itself, during this year’s Le Mans Classic? Artcurial’s third Le Mans Classic sale includes not only a superb selection of collectable cars but also a wealth of posters, photographs, even furniture – from which we’ve chosen some tempting lots connected with the great man himself. Most of these collectables are linked to the film Le Mans, but we’ve not forgotten his equally powerful role as Bullitt, should you see yourself as (or with) a hard-bitten lawman rather than a racing driver.
