High Speed Legends: Unveiling Paul Newman’s Racing Legacy

Online Car Auction

From plodding police officers to cunning pool sharks, Paul Newman could morph into any character and conquer any role.


Some may attribute his Hollywood breakthrough to those piercing blue eyes, but the truth is that this Ohio-born actor’s affability and unassuming nature played an equally significant part in his worldwide appeal. And if you thought Newman’s star power was limited to the silver screen, think again! The man had an insatiable need for speed and an uncanny talent for motorsport.

Let me tell you, folks, Newman’s racing legacy is something to behold. Not only did he dominate the tracks as a driver, but he even had his own team! Can-Am, Sports Car Club of America, IMSA, IndyCar—you name it, he conquered it. The guy was a force to be reckoned with, both on and off the screen.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, RM Sotheby’s—the masters of automotive collectibles—brings you “High Speed: Paul Newman’s Racing Legacy.” This auction is a treasure trove of artifacts from the daring life of this extraordinary man.

One of the standout pieces is a coveted trophy from Newman’s triumph in the GTS-1 class at the 24 Hours of Daytona endurance race in 1995. Hold on to your hats because this achievement, accomplished when Newman was a sprightly 70-year-old, earned him a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records. Impressive, right? But that’s not all! You can also get your hands on race-worn fire suits, custom helmets, and championship rings that Newman himself cherished. These items are oozing with the sweat and adrenaline of his unforgettable victories.

Ever wondered what it’s like to see a Hollywood superstar in his natural habitat? Well, feast your eyes on framed period photographs showing Newman strutting his stuff in the pit lanes alongside fellow celebrities. This guy didn’t just wear those racing gear for show, he lived and breathed the racing lifestyle.

Newman’s career was a whirlwind of speed, excitement, and pure talent. He’s undeniably one of the last larger-than-life film icons, and let me tell you, no modern actor can even come close to matching his skills behind the wheel. So gear up, ladies and gents, because RM Sotheby’s is thrilled to host the collection of Paul Newman—a man whose life was nothing short of extraordinary.
