“We’re thrilled that new and returning visitors will get to experience our hypercars exhibit through a different line-up,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “It’s rare to see any one of these elite vehicles in public, let alone an entire collection of them, and they each stand as a testament to what a hypercar truly is.”

Mainstays that will continue with the exhibit are the two motorcycles tantamount to the hypercar aesthetic: the 2014 Lotus C-01 and the 2021 Aston Martin Brough Superior AMB 01. Previous vehicles on display include the 2016 Pagani Huayra Hermes Edition, 2018 Koenigsegg Agera RS FE “Thor,” 2008 Bugatti Veyron and the 2023 De Tomaso P72.

In addition to launching the new exhibition, Nio, the producer of the EP9 Hypercar featured in the museum’s Hypercars Pt.1 exhibition, has donated 1 of the 16 EP9s produced to benefits the museum’s charity auction taking place on October 1st, 2022. This particular EP9 has been hand painted by artist Nicolai Sclater with a one-of-a-kind livery. This donation marks a new era for the Petersen’s annual fundraiser and is the largest auction item ever offered for sale at a Petersen fundraiser.  The NIO EP9 is considered one of the rarest and world’s fastest electric vehicles due to it breaking multiple lap records, including the well-known Nurburgring Nordschleife lap in 2017.
