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 new class of documentary
16 April 2016 | by (Deutschland) – See all my reviews

I watched it without any expectations and have to say, you get some real entertainment here.

In a nutshell, it explores three car manufacturers building the next big thing. The ultimate street legal racing machine. It does not go too deep into the details, but its very interesting to see how the people behind such projects think and act.

In a world overblown with content, such pieces of art are the things that stand out.

A little downside: Some of the commentary from the interviewed guys are kind of mediocre, but it does not affect the overall experience. If you are into cars or motor sports in general, or just a fan of visually pleasuring cinematography that's built upon a process of design thinking, you won't regret a look.
