But come Labor Day weekend at Lime Rock Park’s Historic Festival, five of the finest examples from RL’s garage will make an appearance.
The guest list:
’64 Ferrari 250 LM
Ferrari’s first mid-engined car is highly coveted on an average day. RL’s particular LM was piloted by, then rookie, Jackie Stewart (the ‘Sir’ came later).
’53 Morgan Plus Four Flat Rad
One of 750 Flat Rads made. Ralph saw fit to swap the original engine for a “more powerful” 90 hp Triumph engine.
Easily the most storied car in the group. Ralph’s Bentley actually took second place in the 1930 French Grand Prix,
’56 Jaguar XKSS
’59 Porsche 718 RSK
One of 35 RSKs ever built. It’s an icon that went on to inspire and influence designers for generations. We can see why Ralph picked one up.
