Clothes might have made Ralph Lauren his fortune, but its cars that are his true passion—or so we think by the Steve McQueen-cool collection Mr. Polo owns. Good thing for car lovers: We hear from Luxist that he will display his collection this spring in Paris. They will be on view at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs from April 28 – August 28. A Taste: a 1964 Ferrari 250 LM; a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Scaglietti; a 1956/1958 Jaguar XKSS; and a 1931 Alfa Romeo Monza 8C 2300.

We hear 13 other cars will be on display (we're still trying to figure out how he'll get them all there). The exhbit will be called "The Art of the Automobile: Masterpieces from the Ralph Lauren Collection." The exhibit will focus on European models created between the 1930s and the 1990s, "illustrating the evolution of car design in the 20th Century," according to Luxist.
