The collection itself is impossible, so owning a copy of this hardbound work of art is the next best thing. For Cars: The Impossible Collection, Assouline turned to automotive journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner Dan Neil to compile the definitive list of the most compelling, well-designed cars of the 20th century. One hundred vehicles are profiled — from the 1929 Bugatti Type 35B to the 1996 McLaren F1 — as well as cars with iconic owners like James Dean, Elvis Presley, and Pablo Picasso. Every copy of The Impossible Collection is hand-bound with color plates that are hand-tipped on each page of art-quality paper. It's then packaged in a handsome black rubber clamshell box with a cutout metal plate.
