Steve McQueen’s International Driving License


19th Sep, 2012


Here it is, the international Motorcyclist’s license belonging to the King of Cool himself, Steve McQueen. It sold at auction in 2009 for a whopping $42,700 USD.

As all McQueen fans would know, the icon was an avid motorcycle and car racer as well as collector, so this is probably the ultimate, most symbolic piece of memorabilia you could own (other than one of his vintage racing cars ofcourse). Also note: he looks pretty damn cute in the photo.
