Among our top three Christmas gifts from last year was
Speed, Style and Beauty
, a masterwork of images and text that details some of the many vehicles owned by fashion mogul and car guy-extraordinaire Ralph Lauren. It's proved to be our defacto time-waster when there's nothing on the tube and little to report on the site. While static shots of one of the most comprehensive collections is all well and good, Discovery will be upping the ante this Saturday at 8PM EST/PST when it premiers
Speed, Style and Beauty: Cars from the Ralph Lauren Collection
. Those of you wired for HD will be particularly enthralled, as the whole show was shot in High Definition... lucky bastards.
Included in the collection is a 1938
8C 2900 prepped for the Mille Miglia, a 1930 M-B SSK, 1955
XKD, a '96 McLaren
and the coup de coupe, a 1938
Type 57SC Atlantic. All delectable, and all highly sought after. But then, what would you expect from a man like Lauren?
