    There will be a display of his cars March 6 - July 3 at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Their site might have some pictures, or you can go one up and check it out next month.

    I think there was an issue of Rosso Ferrari that featured the collection. Mine's in storage, so I can't help.

    There are actually five such garages, a total of about 90 cars, not only Ferraris of course.

    Here is more:

    for those that can make it to boston the museum of fine arts will be displaying the car collection of ralph lauren....including the 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic Coupe that Paul russell did.

    Count Trossi” Mercedes-Benz SSK from 1930, with its flamboyant swept-back fenders and tapered tail. Complementing these pre-war beauties are sleek racers from the 1950s and ’60s, including an example of the legendary Jaguar XKD; a sporty Porsche 550 Spyder; and famed models from the house of Ferrari, such as the 250 Testa Rossa and the GTO

    I understand that 15 cars of the RL collection will be displayed at the Boston Fine Arts Museum. He owns about 90+. Octane magazine, latest issue, has a nice presentation of the cars on display. February 25, 2005, a special inauguration with RL himself will be held for invited guests only.

    Well, then I guess you saw it (naked) at Cavallino in Palm Beach/FL, a few yrs ago.
    Paul Russell's Gullwing Corp in Essex/MA did that one too for RL.

    RL does NOT own an Enzo. he doesn't like it.
    Also, as said before, the 288 GTO and the F50 were sold in Summer 2003 already.

    Nice cars. Too bad they have been collected in bulk and over-restored. I bet RL hasn't himself changed the oil on a single for many years. It's kind of like the fashion industry - Pebble Beach is merely "the New Balck" before they move on to something else.

    "You never pay too much, you are just buying too early..."

    I believe he was the one to make this statement....

    He went into them, obviously with a long "buy and hold' viewpoint....and chose very wisely, based upon both aesthetics and history........like sculptures!

    The guy who said that was the guy who paid $25 for Manhattan. For a while he turned out to be right but as money doubles every 14 years at simple interest he's now and forever quite wrong.

    Quite right, you can go "too long"............

    If it's art, you'd better look at it! If it's a machine, you'd better use it!

    People sometimes get the two confused. Or maybe, it's that the machines that get reclassified!

    While owning them has got to be great, definetly agreed that not being involved with them, or at least putting them to use (beyond looking at them) is a shame. Nevertheless, one can't argue it's a grea way to blow 100MM

    SHAME on all of you, From what I hear he does drive them, and rents out the track. He was very good Friends with Donna Karans late Husband Stephen Weiss, and would rent out race tracks for the day so he and his best friends would Romp on Ducatis.
    The man should be given a Humanitarian award for ferrari Preservation.
    I believe a book is due out this spring on the man and his cars.
