We know from many, many years of watching classic car auctions, that there are certain qualities that ensure big money. For example, putting tiny silver horses and/or yellow badges on a red car will probably bring in a lot of cash. This is doubly true if said car hails from the 1950s or 1960s, and it's triply true if some dude drove it around in circles or if a celebrity owned it. That, friends, is how you make the serious dosh at auction.

Considering that, we should expect big, big things when this 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 crosses the block at the big RM Auctions event during the festivities surrounding the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

Terrence Steven McQueen, better known as Steve McQueen and even better known as the coolest actor of the 1960s and 1970s, originally purchased this car while filming Bullitt in San Francisco, which should provide a big boost to its sale price.

As previously reported, this car has undergone a full restoration and has received its certification from the team at Ferrari Classiche. Beyond that, though, we're kind of in the dark about this beauty. We don't even have a rough guess of how much it'll go for.

That's where you come in. Considering that the price of classic Ferraris is increasing with all the regularity of Old Faithful, how much do you think McQueen's 275 will call for when it hits the stage in August? Head into Comments and let us know.

      As a very young kid growing up, yes, there were the XK-E's and Sting Rays. But the 275 GTB was the ultimate.....nothing more beautiful roamed the planet (until the Lamborghini Miura appeared). Still a beautiful car today. No matter what it sells for.....and it will be a huge number...I will not be surprised.

      $27.5 M was the highest price ever paid at auction for a Ferrari - A topless 1967 275GTB/4 Spyder, also red. And also connected to Steve McQueen. I think this one will sell for $25 Mil. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-08-18/ferrari-nart-spyder-sets-27-5-million-auction-record.html

        The highest price paid for a Ferrari was $52 M. It was a 1963 250 GTO. This car should go north of 20mil. People have been using classic Ferrari as an investment lately.

      My only issue with this article and the auction itself: Couldn't they afford a photographer that would photoshop out the horrible satellite dish from the roof of the house? They're selling fantasy here and my 30 million dollar fantasy does not include a directv dish on the front of my italian villa. And yes, I'm cranky today.

      A 275 GTB/4S NART went for 27 million, this one will probably do around 20 - 22 million
