From the Phantom Corsair to the Jaguar C-X75, these cars are among the rarest—and most special—in the world! They include examples from the golden age of design, like the Bugatti Type 41; streamlined models such as the Tucker Torpedo; advanced “supercars,” including the Ferrari 288 GTO and Aston Martin One-77; and many others. Shown in stunning illustrations, each one stands out for its manufacturer, technical supremacy, aesthetic qualities, and astronomical price—as well as the stories associated with it and, in some cases, even its failure.
