5,000-HP Devel Sixteen Headlines Petersen Museum Hypercar Exhibit

Supercars / Comments

The Devel Sixteen, Pagani Huayra Hermes Edition, and Bugatti Veyron are just three of 30 hypercars to be displayed.

The Petersen Automotive Museum has always had outstanding exhibits for us to marvel over. Three new exhibits were seen this year when it reopened, but the newest thing for us to gawk at is truly drool-worthy. Last week, on December 4, the museum opened a new exhibit called Hypercars: "The Allure of the Extreme," and it's jam-packed with some of the "fastest, most expensive, and exclusive cars in the world." Over the next 18 months, the exhibit will rotate up to 30 vehicles "that highlight what hypercars stand for and why they have taken the automotive world by storm." So what can visitors look forward to?

Over the next year and a half, visitors to the museum can take in cars like the Aria FXE concept, the insane Devel Sixteen, Bugatti's game-changing Veyron, and the wild Caparo T1. Other outstanding machines to look forward to include the spectacular Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, the otherworldly Czinger 21C, the electrifying Nio EP9, and the unconventional Delage D12. Another niche vehicle on show is the RAESR Tachyon Speed, but there are more familiar monsters coming too. The Rimac Concept One will be there too, along with the Koenigsegg Agera RS Final Edition, the McLaren Speedtail, and a design model of the Hennessey Venom F5. Manny Khoshbin's exquisite Pagani Huayra Hermes Edition will be there too, and you could spend hours just drinking in this car's details alone. Interestingly, the exhibit also includes "two motorcycles that fit the description," with the Lotus C-01 and the Aston Martin AMB 001.

"We're excited to host a variety of hypercars in one exhibit," says Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. This variety came from the following criteria: the highest echelon of performance, technological advancement, price, and rarity. The cars will be rotated as the exhibit is split into two successive parts, the first of which is on display until September 22, 2022, while the second group of vehicles will arrive on September 17, 2022, and will depart on May 14, 2023. Located in the Bruce Meyer Family Gallery and the museum lobby, this is one exhibit worth making the trip for. We'd recommend multiple visits.
