An exhibition highlight from Speed: The Art of the Performance Automobile:
Steve McQueen’s Jaguar! A 1957 Jaguar XK-SS, this beauty was owned by the iconic film star. He called it the Green Rat, and had it upholstered with a special holder for his sunglasses. He also used it to goad other hot-rodders into racing with him on Mulholland Drive above Los Angeles. This car is currently part of the collection of Margie and Robert E. Petersen and on loan to the UMFA courtesy of the Petersen Automotive Museum, Los Angeles, California.
