The 100 Most Exceptional Automobiles of the Twentieth  Cenutry Compiled and written by Pulitzer Price-winning Dan Neil

About the Book
It is the dream of many to own the world's most beautifully designed automobiles, but most often only a handful of collectors ever come close. Now, The Impossible Collection of Cars makes the dream come true, showcasing the 100 most exceptional cards of the twentieth century. Each luxury automobile-from the 1909 Blitzen Benz to a 1997 Porsche 993 Turbo S-was chosen for its revolutionary design, magnificent lines, and head-turning capabilities. The book also featured cards owned by celebrities like Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Pablo Picasso, and Elvis Presley. The Impossible Collection volume is presented on cotton paper in beautiful black rubber clamshell box with a cutout metal plate.
