America’s Car Museum To Showcase Supercars In New Exhibit

The exhibit will feature 18 exotics, supercars, hypercars and everything in between.

America’s Car Museum (ACM) will be fueling the debate of a widely contested term in the automotive community: exotic cars. Starting May 6, the Museum’s “Exotics@ACM – Seductive Supercars” exhibit will attempt to settle the long-standing dispute by defining six common attributes among exotic vehicles.

Exotics@ACM will feature 18 exotics, supercars, hypercars and everything in between. Keeping the dialogue and display fresh, ACM will rotate the vehicle line-up located in its Titus-Will Gallery.

“If you ask car enthusiasts to define what an exotic car is, you’re likely to get answers that are as varied as the vehicles themselves,” said ACM Curator of Exhibitry Scot Keller. “We’re putting this discussion to rest by detailing the core qualities and showcasing a huge assortment of exotics, supercars and hypercars alike.”

ACM defines the six core commonalities among all exotics as: prestigious brand roots; limited production; great design proportions and stance; technically advanced and sophisticated powertrains; and stunning performance (acceleration, top speed, braking and lateral acceleration).

The initial vehicles featured in Exotics@ACM include:

  • 1992 Acura NSX
  • 1969 De Tomaso Mangusta
  • 2015 BMW i8
  • 1974 Maserati Bora
  • 2015 Mercedes SLS AMG
  • 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Spider
  • 2012 Mercedes SLS AMG
  • 2012 Lexus LFA
  • 2013 Ferrari F1 Show Car
  • Ferrari 512 BBi
  • 2016 Porsche GT3RS
  • 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona
  • 2005 Ford GT
  • 2005 Ferrari F430
  • 2016 Ferrari f12tdf
  • 2001 Ferrari 550 Maranello
  • 1986 Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole
  • 2012 Aston Martin V12 Vantage

“Exotics and supercars stand at the pinnacle of automotive engineering, to the point where a car truly becomes a work of art,” said ACM CEO David Madeira. “We’re excited to prominently display a large selection of these vehicles and to voice our opinion on what makes them worthy of such praise.”
