SuperCars: Exhibit Opening Reception
While there are some automobiles that are instantly identifiable as supercars, there is no set definition as to what a supercar is or is not; this is an issue that is always open for debate. Many would argue that a supercar has to adhere to certain criteria, but of course these criteria change over time as technology and even style progresses. For every supposed rule or guideline in the supercar genre, there are plenty of exceptions. “Supercar,” then, is indeed a fluid term, and one that car enthusiasts can and have argued about – and no doubt will continue to do so for a very long time. Although the term itself hasn’t been around forever, the concept of a supercar arguably goes back to the very beginning of the Motor Age.
Please join us at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum this spring as we explore the very deep roots of the theme of this exhibit and a variety of other aspects of what makes a supercar a most coveted and longed for mode of personal transportation and status, and perhaps, even of self-expression. This year-long exhibit opens to the public on May 5, 2017 and will feature ancient cars, such as a 1907 Fiat Tipo, and modern marques, such as McLaren and Ferrari, along with supporting historical references, images and renderings that will add to the raging debate of just what made and continues to make SuperCars super!
