In The Competition of Elegance, Ralph Lauren's Bugatti Is Extraordinaire

Ralph Lauren's 1937 Bugatti Type 57 SC Gangloff Drophead Coupe -- one of only two of it's kind -- won "Best in Show - Road and Touring" at the 36 annual Sunday in the Park Concours d'Elegance during Lime Rock's Historic Festival. With it's coupe body style, riveted seams, tear drop fenders and distinguished Art Deco style, the near priceless car was undoubtedly a show-stopper -- or être extraordinaire! The Bugatti also won a Best in Class award for the 1930s Bugatti.
