L'art de l'automobile ; chefs d'oeuvre de la collection Ralph Laurent
Text of Rodolphe Rapetti
Among the world's great automotive collections, one more than any other is synonymous with excellence: Ralph Lauren.
This book presents a selection of its most prestigious sports cars from the 1930s to the present day, designed by the greatest names - Bentley, Bugatti, Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, Porsche, Ferrari. These seventeen jewels of European automotive history share a common denominator: beauty, the quest for speed and performance.
Each vehicle is studied in detail, from a technical, historical and stylistic point of view. The beauty of the lines, colors and materials is matched by the mechanical beauty that results from the search for efficiency and precision, both of which combine to create a true art of the automobile.
