Earlier we wrote about some of the eye-popping autos featured in the new Assouline book The Impossible Collection of Cars.
As the title suggests, it would literally be impossible to own them all.
But you have got a chance to add one of them to your dream garage come January.
That’s when Barrett-Jackson will auction off the 1947 Bentley Mark VI Cabriolet with custom coachwork by Franay, featured in the book, at its Scottsdale sale.
As featured in the new Assouline book The Impossible Collection of Cars
Created exclusively for the 1947 Paris Auto Show, it’s widely considered to be the most unique and valuable postwar Bentley on the planet.
Barrett-Jackson has not released an estimate for the vehicle, but in 2006 it sold for $1.7 million; it could easily hit the $2 million mark this time around.
The interior of the unique car is adorned with frog skin inserts and features a built-in bespoke bar cabinet complete with glasses and silver flasks.
Among its many honors, in June of 1995 the car was awarded Best of Show at the Hurlingham England Concours D’Elegance as well as the Spectator Trophy.
The frog skin may not be to everyone’s taste, but it’s unmistakably French….
