The Greatest Classic Car Collection of All Time? The Ralph Lauren Collection

This week, Ralph Lauren’s car collection will go on display at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and will be part of an exhibit devoted to the collection called “The Art of the Automobile: Masterpieces from the Ralph Lauren Collection”.

Words cannot describe the wonder that is Ralph Lauren’s collection so I will not even attempt to do so. Rather, I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Our first batch of photos comes from a Vanity Fair shoot taken inside Ralph Lauren’s garage in January 2011:

You can find the rest of the Vanity Fair photoshoot in the links at the bottom of this post. I definitely recommend looking through them, there are many more fantastic photos of his collection.

Yahoo! Auto previews some of the vehicles that will actually be on show this week in Paris:

You can find more information regarding the history of some of the vehicles that will be shown at the museum in the Yahoo! Autos link at the bottom of this post.

One last piece of Ralph Lauren car-porn for those of you who made it this far down the post (we’ll consider this the chocolate mousse after a filling French meal).
