Supercars: A Century of Spectacle & Speed
Petersen Automotive Museum
6060 Wilshire Boulevard
***Covid-19 Restrictions Require Advance Ticket Purchase.***
Although popularized in the 1960s, the term “supercar” has been in existence for more than a century!
While the high-performance vehicles often associated with the modern definition of a supercar did not arrive until the 1950s, their mechanical and design specifications have evolved from era to era.
With more than 30 examples ranging from the big-bore monsters of more than a century ago to more recent and recognizable exotic machines embodying modern technical sophistication and exceptional performance, this exhibition highlights those vehicles that pushed the boundaries of their respective periods, offering drivers of their day the ultimate motoring experience.
