The famous American fashion designer Ralph Lauren will exhibit an impressive collection of cars between April 28 and August 28 at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris.

The famous fashion designer Ralph Lauren is coming to Paris along with his impressive car collection. A selection of the most prestigious sports cars from 1930 until today will be open to the European public for the first time at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris between April 28 and 28 August.

The 17 models were chosen by director Rodolphe Rapetti to better reflect the European automotive history. Through this exhibition, Ralph Lauren shows us that the car is art in its most developed form, taken to the extreme by industry’s biggest names. Visitors at the exhibition in Paris will see a series of cars with an impressive history.

Blower Bentley is a model manufactured in 1929 and designed by WO Bentley. Its name comes from the compressor fixed by Sir Hilary Birkin. Bentley Bowler was created with the purpose of winning competitions and, at the same time, it was a car chosen by Ian Fleming in the first parts of the James Bond 007 book.

Another model that will definitely be admired is the Mercedes-Benz SSK Count Trossi. Mercedes SSK models are the archetype of the 1920s models by the Suttgart constructor, and this version bears the name of the Italian aristocrat and pilot Count Carlo Felice Trossi.

Another model with a history that will be present in Paris is Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic Coupe. The model was produced in four copies, and today only two of them can be admired.

Also under the “protection” of Ralph Lauren a Ferrari 375 Plus designed by Giovanni Battista Pininfarina in the ’50s can be found. Jaguar XKD is the fastest car of those years and managed to win three times at the 24-Hour Race in Le Mans and a victory in the Nurburgring 24-Hour Race in 1956.

Also in the collection, visitors can admire models Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe and Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa. The latter bears the signature of Sergio Scaglietti, one of the most talented bodybuilders at Ferrari. Testa Rossa’s name comes from the red color of the camshaft cover.
