About this movie

“APEX: The Story of the Hypercar” spotlights a new class of exotic sports cars designed to blast from zero to 200 miles per hour in seconds. Rocket science meets the auto industry as “APEX” follows a thread that starts in the design studios and R&D labs where these “fighter jets of the street” are created, and leads to a perilous racetrack in Germany where drivers can reach new heights of speed and performance -- if they dare.

Equal parts human drama and speed, “APEX” follows Swedish entrepreneur Christian von Koenigsegg, a lifelong sports car enthusiast on a personal quest to build a “mega” car whose golden ratio defies all expectations for a hypercar's velocity and power, while competing against the biggest names in motorsports for space on the world stage.

With insights from top engineers and designers, "APEX” pulls back the curtain on the top-secret development facilities at Porsche, Ferrari, McLaren and Pagani, where awe-inspiring hypercars are imagined and built, and puts you inches from the action, as top drivers shake down the latest hypercars, flat-out on some of the world’s greatest racetracks.

While some of the content was pretty obvious to any car-enthusiast, the insight from Christian Koenigsegg , Horacio Pagani, & heads of Bugatti, and more, were really inspiring and interesting - what differentiates each company, their niche, their philosophies, and what drives them. And best of all, the cinematography was just awesome, maybe because it's similar to my style, but either way, it was beautiful. Definitely recommend. If you don't like it, at least you can screenshot some aesthetic car wallpapers.

Beautiful cinematography, wonderful narration, and insightful dialogue from the automotive journalists and visionaries from the world of Hypercars! This, is a very refreshing look into a competitive industry, that doesn't have any animosity towards its rivals.

Best car stuff outside of Top Gear. Totally different from TG, but very good. (the real TG of course)
