When I think of Steve McQueen, I think of the ‘King of Cool.’ Always stylish, with a bit of an edge to him. Steve is known for being a movie star, a race car driver, and much more.

I am overjoyed to bring this collection to the world and driving enthusiasts everywhere, says INHERENT Founder Taylor Draper.

His Hollywood career began with bit parts in westerns and eventually led to his being the most famous and highest-paid actor of his time. He parlayed an early fascination with cars and motorcycles into a career as a champion racer, and later as perhaps the most famous collector of vintage automotive machines in the world. Throughout his public life, McQueen exhibited a cool demeanor and style that made him a cultural icon, admired by men, loved by famous and beautiful women, and captured for eternity by the world’s top photographers.
