Today’s rare POTD features the King of Cool contemplating over two utterly gorgeous Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lussos with his wife Neile nearby, reading a magazine. The 2nd photo shows his German Shepherd accompanying the excellent photo in tail-wagging appreciation of the Italian prancing horses that McQueen would come to make rather famous…
These incredibly rare photos were captured by Steve’s photographer-friend, William Claxton in 1963 and will be auctioned off on December 19, 2011 in Paris, France as part of French auction house Articurial‘s Une Histoire d’Homme sale. The Dec. 19 auction is aimed at the discerning gentleman with a taste for the finer, gentlemanly things in life including vintage cars, luggage, movie posters, vintage toys, rare watches and other assorted goodies.
