Ralph Lauren’s Car Collection

26 07 2009


Most would recognize Ralph Lauren as the personality behind the famous Polo fashion label, but few would suspect that Lauren also has a car collection to rival the likes of Jay Leno or an Arab Sheikh. The native New Yorker is an avid car nut like many of us, only he has the means to afford most of the cars that we can only lust over.

Together with the Discovery Channel, Lauren has now opened the doors of his private collection to the public for a new documentary called Speed, Style and Beauty: Cars from the Ralph Lauren Collection that aired over the weekend. We watched it… in high-def… it was awesome. Some of the more notable vehicles in the collection include a Bugatti Veyron, an ultra-rare McLaren F1LM (one out of only five cars), one of the first supercharged Bentley’s ever created and two Ferrari 250 Testa Rossas.
