Steve McQueen’s 1931 Brough Superior, Up For Auction
This exquisite 1931 Brough Superior motorcycle that at one point was owned by famous actor Steve McQueen as well as custom-car artist Von Dutch will be auctioned on August 20 at the Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach event, along with a Chassis 3, which is the oldest surviving Bentley in the world.
The auction house says that the 1921 Bentley 3 Litre is the very first car that was manufactured by the British automaker and its estimate is available upon request. McQueen’s motorcycle was made famous by T.E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia) who was an officer during World War I. The actor shared the motorcycle with his buddy, Von Dutch. The 1931 Brough Superior SS80 is going to be sold with a letter of authenticity which was written by Chad McQueen, Steve’s son.
At the auction, the motorcycle is expected to fetch more than $200,000.
