The Impossible Collection of Cars, due out next month from Assouline, assembles the world’s ultimate automobiles – God’s car collection, if you will.

The limited edition volume which sells for $650 is printed on cotton paper and comes in a black rubber presentation box with a cutout metal plate in a custom tote bag.

Author Dan Neil notes the vehicles embody “privilege, mobility and a will to explore the limits of what is possible in speed, luxury and decadence.”

Every famed marque is represented, and of course the book contains several examples belonging to Ralph Lauren, who’s come as close as anyone to assembling the impossible collection.

Impossibly beautiful to be sure….
