Titled APEX, /DRIVE have produced this wonderful documentary that explores what goes into building a hypercar, the engineering and passion that drives the teams and why they exist; who buys these cars?

“The hypercar is the ultimate expression of intellect and ego”


Following Christian von Koenigsegg, we see the team at Koenigsegg putting their final work on the fist One:1 model show car which debauted at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. We also see their performance testing and the struggles they face to run the lap times they aim to achieve.

The hypercar history shows the journey of how it started, the F40, Bugatti Veyron, and the current trio, the Porsche 918, McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari and how this generation have all turned to hybrid technologies to enhance powertrains to insane levels.
