One of the coolest movie stars, ever.

His collection of cars and bikes attracted high bids at Saturday's auction. A 1937 Crocker V-Twin motorcycle fetched $276,500, a world record for a Crocker, according to auction house spokesman Levi Morgan. The Persol sunglasses, sold to an anonymous buyer, are the ones McQueen is believed to have worn for the opening scenes of the 1968 film The Thomas Crown Affair. A Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, which featured in the same movie, went for the same price. Sales from the auction totalled $2.9m.
