Wednesday, April 9th, I attended an exclusive exhibit opening at the Petersen Automotive Museum. The exhibit, called The World’s Greatest Sports Coupes, features a number of iconic, rare and beautiful sport coupes from around the world. Anything from Ferrari to Acura, this new exhibit is a must see.
I attended the event, Sponsored by Jaguar, as media. The evening started off with drinks and hors d’oeuvre in one of the museums other exhibits. After some time, which seemed like an eternity, the video screens started playing an introduction to the exhibit. One of the exhibits curators, Ian Callum (Jaguar Designer) spoke about the F-Type Coupe, which made an appearance in the exhibit. Then the curtains were drawn and like cattle we all poured into the exhibit.
There were some cars that I expected to see such as the Jaguar E-Type but there were a few surprises thrown in to make for a very interesting and diverse exhibit. Below are images of each car featured plus the sign accompanying it.
I hope you enjoy as much as I did. Be sure to visit the World’s Greatest Sports Coupes exhibit at the Petersen soon!
