2016 Porsche 911 R Steve McQueen Tribute

Dec 30, 2016

We could most certainly picture the ‘King of Cool,’ Mr. Steve McQueen himself, sporting around Europe in this Slate Grey Porsche 911 R if he were still with us today. And in outfitting this one-off Tribute to McQueen, it appears the owner of this German beauty felt the same way. Now’s your chance to own it.

Existing as the only PT 911 R delivered to France, this fine automobile is up for auction through RM Sotheby’s. Beauty is matched with power here as well, with the 911 R boasting a 500 bhp DOHC horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine, a six-speed manual transmission controlling the show, and an independent front and rear suspension. A personalized interior, Bose sound system, and illuminated door sills lighting up McQueen’s words, “Racing is life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting,” can be found inside the sports car. Best of all 25 percent of the car’s selling price will be donated to the Gustave Roussy Foundation which works to help cure cancer in children. There really is no substitute for class in this instance. [Purchase]
