Ralph Lauren's garage is more awesome than your garage


If you think that Jay Leno has an awesome garage, you obviously haven’t seen the cars in Ralph Lauren ’s garage. Housing some of the rarest vehicles in the history of the world, the fashion icon’s well-documented fondness for classic vehicles is already well chronicled. But while we know about Ralph and his obsession with exotics of all shapes and sizes, we’ve yet to get a look at some of the vehicles that are all carefully restored in tip-top condition at his museum-like garage in Atlanta.

Fortunately, Vanity Fair was given a tour inside the facility and, oh dear Lord, the cars inside just made our jaws drop. Ranging from classics like a 1938 Bugatti coupe and a 1938 Alfa Romeo Mille Miglia roadster to modern pieces of machinery like a Bugatti Veyron and a Lamborghini Murcielago SuperVeloce , Lauren’s garage is like a who’s who of automobile greatness. It even has the only 1930 Mercedes SSK “Count Trossi” roadster in existence. What’s more amazing is that all these cars, especially the classics, have all been maintained in ideal condition and, every so often, Ralph Lauren even takes them out for a spin.

We’ve seen some pretty amazing celebrity garages in our time, including that of Jay Leno’s, but Ralph Lauren’s garage is without question the most amazing celebrity garage we’ve ever seen.

UPDATE 04/26/11: In just two days, one of the world’s most exclusive car collections belonging to no other than Ralph Lauren himself will be on exhibit for the first time in Europe at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, France. Talking about his extensive list of classic automobiles, Ralph Lauren shares how he thinks about his cars - not as a collection, but as an extension of himself - as works of art.

Ralph Lauren certainly have the best garage and car collection. I like the fact that he gets inspiration from cars to add details on his designs.

I agree!! Jay Leno and Ralph Lauren will make such a good collaboration. Two of them must talk and compare about the same car and make their own impression about it. But Lauren’s garage is more breathtaking for it has many vintage cars.

Maybe its much better if Ralph Lauren and Jay leno would talk about their common interest on Jay Leno’s show. That would be awesome. BTW, I don’t know how many cars that Ralph Lauren has in his garage.

I think its much interesting if they compare the garage of Ralph Lauren and Jay Leno. I don’t have any idea if they have meet before and talk about their common interest.

We have know Ralph Lauren in making thousands piece if sewed clothes, and I didn’t know that his quite a car guy! Ralph has a great collection.

Brazil is the setting of the Fast and the Furious right?hehe. Just asking.

Well, we all know that Jay Leno’s garage is more popular compare to Ralph Lauren.

Can you imagine getting into that and driving around in it? That would be so, so awesome.

for a second i thought it was backwards, the front on the right and the back on the left, which would’ve been so cool like a Scorpio supercar kinda thing .

IMO, Jay Leno’s garage is more popular compare to Ralph Lauren. But Yes, I would agree that Jay would me so grateful to see Ralph’s garage. I hope so..

Now, who got the most amazing garage? According to latest count according Rosalie- (Jay Leno’s wife) Jay Leno’s collection is composed of 84 cars and 73 motorcycle.

Look at the ferrari at the middle, he’s really seating pretty over the garage of Ralph Lauren, for sure those car are in good conditions.

agree, this garage is truly exceptional and one of a kind, most of cars here are very rare and exotic.

well of course this is the garage of RL the world renowned perfume and apparel maker. jay leno really should see this garage.

yeah this is something different, I’d really love to see this garage hopefully someone will give me a pass to see all this exotic cars.

great looking garage/barn even with the stalls. Actually it might even be cooler WITH the stalls ha ha but yes no room for more cars.

Seriously, I love the McLaren F1/F1LM. Awesome design that still looks new and fresh, precision engineering, seats 3 people.... man, that car is amazing! It’s too bad other companies don’t try doing stuff as innovative as the McLaren F1.

jay leno should see this garage.. I bet he will be amazed when he saw this.
