It’s only natural that a book about the 100 most exceptional cars of the 20th century should in itself be as high end and stylish as the vehicles featured in it. You can’t drive it on the highway but you can sure admire its sleek lines.Printed on cotton paper, the same stuff they print archival documents and even money on because it lasts forever, and presented in a black rubber box with a cutout metal plate, this gorgeous volume features not only the most notable car designs all the way from a 1909 Blitzen Benz to a 1997 Porsche 993, but also cars made famous by the people who drove them, like Elvis and Picasso.

Text is by Pulitzer Prize-winner Dan Neil, autmotive columnist for the Wall Street Journal. The guy knows cars, and clearly knows how to put together a jaw-droppingly awesome book about them.
