The Great Escaper....Steve McQueen's Porsche Turbo - customised to help him outrun the cops...and the press.<br />
<br />
The last car bought by Hollywood badboy Steve McQueen before his untimely death 35 years ago which he customised to help him outrun paparazzi photographers has been put up for sale.<br />
<br />
McQueen, a renowned petrolhead, had the Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera custom made in 1976, four years before he died from cancer aged 50.<br />
<br />
He was one of the hottest stars on the planet at the time, and at his request the turbo-charged sports car was fitted with a list of added extras including a special switch that turned off the rear lights to make it hard to spot at night.<br />
<br />
The car is being sold by collector and restorer Mike Regalia at Mecum Auctions in Monterey, California.<br />
<br />
Experts there are remaining tight-lipped about how much they expect it to fetch - but it is likely to be hundreds of thousands of pounds
