Storyline

"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 ...

A must-see for (modern) car enthusiasts.
22 October 2016 | by erikaakSee all my reviews

I am used to see so much car-related material on TV/streaming/internet etc. that I have gotten a bit critical of what I am about to spend my time on watching. There's just so much junk out there. Luckily there's also documentaries/shows/clips that IS worth spending time watching, and "Apex: The Story of the Hypercar" is definitely one of them. Interesting from start to end, with beautiful pictures of fantastic cars and interviews with fascinating, interesting and inspiring people. Throughout the documentary you'll get a little bit closer to the major hypercar manufacturers, but as a red line it follows the story of Koenigsegg, whom you'll get to know the best. Not giving it a 10 score rating only because I think it should be a longer, even more "in depth", documentary.
