Description

Steve McQueen A Passion for Speed Book

• Even 30 years after his death, Steve McQueen remains an icon of cool

• His image continues to appear in advertising and pop culture, and car, motorcycle, and racing fans embrace him as one of their own

• Now comes this volume featuring rare photography and chronicling McQueen's fascination with and passion for all things internal-combustion powered. McQueen’s movie characters always had a great motorcycle or car from the 650cc “BMW” motorcycle (a disguised Triumph) in The Great Escape (1963); to the 1968 Ford Mustang GT fastback he drove in the seminal Bullitt chase scene (1968); to the Ferrari 275 GTS/4 NART Spyder roadster in the provocative The Thomas Crown Affair (1968); and the Gulf Porsche 917 race car he raced in Le Mans (1971)

• His need for speed propelled him from Hollywood into a number of top off-road motorcycle races, including the Baja 1000, Mint 400, and Elsinore Grand Prix

• Determined to be ahead of the pack, McQueen trained vigorously, weight lifting, running, and studying martial arts

• Steve McQueen A Passion for Speed reflects a life lived in the moment and with the pedal to the metal
