With over 39 exotic cars, Lauren‘s crown jewel is his 1938 Bugatti Type 58SC Atlantic Coupe. There are only three produced, and two remaining. His classic fleet also boasts of a 1958 Ferrari 250 Tesla Rossa, 1929 Blower Bentley, 1930 Mercedes Count Trossi SSK, McLaren F1, and Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 Mille Miglia.
