Preppy Ralph Lauren should stick to yachting … because his driving sucks … according to a new lawsuit.

Ralph invited Oprah to his opulent, well-decorated Colorado Double RL Ranch back in 2011.  One of them had a bright idea — doing an interview in his vintage 1948 Jeep … which we”re guessing smelled like perfumed potpourri. 

A guy who was outfitting the whip with microphones was working near the back bumper when Ralph took the wheel and suddenly shifted into reverse … violently striking him — at least that”s what he alleges in a new lawsuit.

The good news … the courtroom will smell fabulous!
