You will get a sneak peek into fashion designers Ralph Lauren life and some of the unique glimpses into the taste of one of the major men in the fashion game.

Among the exhibit will be a Bentley Blower from 1929 which was used in early James Bond movies and was a car similar to something of an Aston Martin of today. A Mercedes-Benz SSK from 1930 which was owned by racing driver Count Carlo Felice Trossie and a Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic Coupe, there are only 4 of these ever made and only two which remain. His collection doesn’t stop there however Ferrari fans will be well catered for as he has 4 within his collection one which was a 375 plus from 1954 which was actually designed by Pinin Farina himself and a Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa from a 1957 by auto legend Sergio Scaglietti.
