Ralph Lauren car collection is one of the most valuable in the world. And here are fifteen most expensive cars he owns.
“Ooh, who’s the silver fox?” said Phoebe as she saw a picture of Ralph Lauren on a magazine. On that special episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Ralph appeared as himself in a cameo role. The TV series told a story of how Rachel worked at Ralph Lauren. And this article will tell you a story of expensive cars from Ralph Lauren car collection.
Besides a mogul in fashion industry, Ralph is also the 10th richest self-made billionaire who was once poor. He dropped out of Baruch College to serve the Army. Then, he first encountered the world of fashion as he worked part-time job in garment industry. He took this job seriously. And this statement is proven with the fact that he managed to sell $500,000 worth of ties in 1967 through his tie-making business he opened in a tiny office at Empire State building.
After designing ties for other brands, Ralph decided to launch his own brand, Ralph Lauren. Today, it is one of the leading fashion brands in the world. And Ralph has around $5.6 billion of estimated net worth.
One of his ways of spending that much money is buying luxury cars, from new to classic. And these fifteen are the most expensive from his collection. While Phoebe drools over his look, let’s drool over these horsepowered beauties.
15. Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse ($2.9 million)
Bugatti Veyron is so popular among celebrities, including some of the world-renowned rappers and NBA players. And this is the most expensive current base model sold by the manufacturer. Overall, Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is the 13th most expensive Bugatti car in the world.
It is actually just the roadster version of the Veyron Super Sport. While the Super Sport holds the world record for fastest super car, Vitesse holds the fastest production roadster world record. A year after it was premiered, Vitesse set a 408.84 kph speed. To date, no other roadster can match that record. Imagine going through that speed with the top open though.
What makes it so fast is its engine power, aerodynamic package, and carbon-fiber body. Its 8.0-L W16 engine has 1,200 hp which makes it possible to accelerate from 0 to 100 in just 2.5 seconds.
Each unit of Vitesse has been sold out, one went to Ralph Lauren. Even though its asking retail price was only around $1.7 million per unit when it made its debut, some units have been resold for a much higher price: up to $2.9 million.
