It is expected to fetch up to €350,000.

The sale of the car is bound to revive fond memories of the actor and the roles he - and the Porsche - played in the movie about the famous 24-hour race.

It is widely agreed that the 1971 film is still one of the most important racing-car stories played out on the silver screen.

In the film, McQueen plays American race driver Michael Delaney who is competing for Porsche.

One of the early scenes shows McQueen exploring Le Mans in his brown 911.
