“Supercars: A Century of Spectacle and Speed,” supported by Michelin, showcases the evolution of the supercar by gathering some of the most iconic vehicles, including all-time favorites — 1991 Ferrari F40, 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO and 1998 McLaren F1 LM — in one place.

“Redefining Performance,” with support from Porsche, displays the details of Porsche’s innovation from the street to the track with a 1951 Porsche 356SL Gmünd Coupe, the 1979 Porsche 935 Kremer K3 and a Porsche RSR.

Supported by Land Rover, “Extreme Conditions” highlights 11 custom competition, recreational and utilitarian off-road vehicles, including a 1989 Porsche 964 (Desert Flyer) raced in the Mexican 1000, a rock crawler Jeep (Goldirocks) raced by the late Jessi Combs, and a 2019 Land Rover Defender Trek vehicle.
