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.
