MONTEREY, Calif., April 29 (UPI) -- A 1963 Ferrari once owned by the late actor Steve McQueen will go up for auction this summer in Monterey, Calif.

The BBC reported the metallic-brown Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso is expected to fetch $800,000. McQueen reportedly brought the car in 1963 and drove it for 10 years.

The car will be sold on Aug. 16 at Monterey Jet Center.

A car collector and racing enthusiast, McQueen was nicknamed the "king of cool" for his film characters, who were often nonchalant, easygoing heroes.
