If there is any actor who, more than anyone else, has remained synonymous with charm, male beauty, style, courage and likeability, it can only be the great Steve McQueen.
Dubbed the “King of Cool”, McQueen is inextricably linked to the world of motorsports and sports cars.
His immense passion for cars and high-speed sports races make him an icon of the world of motorsports, as well as the big screen.
His line “Racing is life, anything that happens before or after is just waiting” has now become legendary, much like the film that he worked on as star and producer, “Le Mans”, which has become a true cult hit over the years.
Steve McQueen will always be the man who races: racing cars, racing motorbikes, and racing through life, a life tragically cut short but which he always lived intensely, amidst fast cars and beautiful women.
This is the passion that he handed down to his son, Chad McQueen, who directly helped to design the details of this statue, which took a lot of time and dedication to be created.
With the direct collaboration of Chad McQueen, who helped us to make this piece as accurate as possible, as well as contributions from Tag Heuer and Firestone (Bridgestone), we have managed to depict every last tiny detail of Steve McQueen during a race in the historic 24 Hours of Le Mans, which he personally raced in and featured in the film he would then go on to star in.
The suit, the helmet, the wheel of his Porsche 917: attention has been paid to every last detail to make this statue an homage to the great actor and his greatest passion. But it is also a tribute to all the men who defy death at high speeds on the asphalt of the most famous tracks in the world, with passion and courage, turning their lives into legends.
This limited edition is destined to become the cult piece for a cult classic, to be as cool as the King of Cool.
For anyone who has Steve McQueen in their heart and hears the roar of engines like a breath, this is the finest gift they could ever receive.
