9780760342480: Steve McQueen: A Passion for Speed

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 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.

From the Inside Flap:

Even 30 years after his death, Steve McQueen remains an icon of cool. His image continues to appear in advertising and pop culture, and he has a particularly ardent following among car, motorcycle, and racing enthusiasts. Steve McQueen: A Passion for Speed chronicles the actor/racer’s fascination with and love for all things internal combustion-powered. In his movies, McQueen’s character always had a great motorcycle or car -- from the "BMW" motorcycle (actually a made-over Triumph) he piloted in The Great Escape (1963); to the 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback he drove in the fantastic chase in Bullitt (1968); to the Ferrari 275 GTS/4 NART Spyder roadster in the provocative The Thomas Crown Affair (1968); and the Gulf-liveried Porsche 917 race car he maneuvered on the track in Le Mans (1971). But McQueen’s need for speed didn’t stop with the silver screen. He was an avid and skilled amateur off-road racer who competed in top events including the Baja 1000, Mint 400 and Elsinore Grand Prix. He was fast on a road course as well, teaming with Peter Revson to finish second in the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1970. Determined to be ahead of the pack, McQueen maintained his body like a machine as well. He trained vigorously, weight lifting, running and studying martial arts. McQueen: A Passion for Speed offers a fresh, handsomely illustrated look into the star's various gearhead pursuits, from desert racing to Le Mans, sports cars to antique motorcycles. It’s a fitting tribute to a life lived in the moment and with pedal to the metal.
