You can't go anywhere in the automotive world without being slapped in the face with talk of Jay Leno's car collection. But word to Weezy F, real Gs move in silence like lasagna, making Ralph Lauren a well-fed mime. Not so many people know the designer is also a dedicated gear-head, with a multi-million dollar garage of his own.
Now, for a limited time, Lauren plans to share some of his most coveted rides with the world, sending them overseas to our international BFF, France. The Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris plans to exhibit some of his collection from April 28 to August 28, and the website Luxist has managed to get a sneak peek of some of the 'exhibits'. On display will be Lauren's 1964 Ferrari 250 LM, 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Scaglietti, 1956/1958 Jaguar XKS, and 1931 Alfa Romeo Monza 8C 2300.
Word has it an additional 13 absolutely remarkable examples of automotive art will also be displayed in the exhibit titled The Art of the Automobile: Masterpieces from the Ralph Lauren Collection. Among those 13 will sit two of the world's most expensive vehicles: a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO and a 1938 Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic Coupe. Both of which are worth an estimated $30-$40 million...each.
We're guessing a few multilingual "Do Not Touch" signs are already on order.
