Sneak Preview of Hypercars Exposition @ The Petersen's
The term "Hypercar" has been used to label the highest performing supercars. These are the most stunning, best performing, and most technologically advanced road vehicles in history. They are exceedingly rare.
According to Wikipedia, the first Hypercar was the 1993 McLaren F1. Boasting a 0-60 MPH of 3.2 seconds and 618 horsepower, the F1 was considered the world's fastest car and the object of desire for some of the world's most affluent car enthusiast.
Times have changed since the F1 era. In December, the Petersen Automotive Museum will showcase some of the world's rarest engineering marvels in an upcoming exhibition titled "Hypercars: The Allure of the Extreme."
Schaefer Trans LAX has been hired to coordinate the import, transport and care of three hypercars deemed worthy to be presented at the institution that is the Petersen's. The first of which is the 2019 NIO EP9:
The EP9 is an electric 2-door coupe with only 16 production models that are not road-legal. It has a combined 1,341 hp and a range of 265 miles. Capable of autonomous driving, it has set a speed record at the Circuit of the Americas for the fastest autonomous vehicle. It has been sold to NIO investors for £2,500,000, or $3,334,000 USD at the time of writing.
Next is the 2020 Caparo T1. Hailing from Norfolk, UK, it's a 1-door coupe capable of 575 horsepower. Here are some images of the Caparo in transport:
The T1 was officially revealed by the Prince of Monaco at the Top Marques in 2006. No production models were manufactured.
Last but not least, we have the 2018 Devel Sixteen:
The Devel is a prototype hypercar made in the UAE. Depending on whether the V8 or V16 or v16+turbo model, the Devel is capable of 1500, 3000 or 5007 horsepower.
Schaefer Trans LAX is proud to be trusted with the transport of these hypercars!
