Ralph Lauren’s passion and love of classic cars is well known. And over the years this passion has resulted in an exclusive collection of vintage cars some of which are rare beauties. His collection of cars is known to boast of multiple vintage Ferraris and Porsches. But the crown jewel of Ralph’s collection of cars definitely has to be the 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic. Only three Atlantics were made on designs developed by Jean Bugatti, the son of Ettore, who founded the iconic marquee. Out of the three made only two have survived till today and Ralph is the proud owner of one of them.
Ralph Lauren has devised a very innovative way of raising funds for a charitable cause. He is offering to give a chance to one person to view his personal collection of cars with the designer personally guiding him along. If you are interested, you will have to bid to avail of the opportunity. The winner will also get to ride in one of the cars and receive a signed copy of Speed, Style, and Beauty: Cars from the Ralph Lauren Collection.
The current bid for this personally guided tour of Lauren’s cars is $32,000 but it is expected to reach $150,000 by the time the bidding closes on October 21st. All proceeds will go towards the Ralph Lauren Pink Pony Fund, Polo Ralph Lauren’s breast cancer-fighting charity organization.
