One of the highlights of Monterey Car Week 2019 was attending Exotics on Broadway (formerly Exotics on Cannery Row). This event is notable as the most-attended event of Car Week, being that it is both free and open to the public. More than 30,000 people showed up for this year’s event, according to the organizers.
For car enthusiasts, you might delight in seeing an exotic car in your town as you go about your daily life. A Ferrari 458 Italia, a Lamborghini Huracan, an Audi R8, or an AMG Mercedes would be a notable sighting on any other day of the year. But at Exotics on Broadway, these cars are almost as common as Honda Accords.
It’s hard to appreciate these mid-range sports and exotic cars in the presence of so many unicorns – the elite, multi million-dollar, super limited production hypercars cars you’ve read about online, but have never seen in person. Exotics on Broadway brings together the best of the best – Pagani, Koenigsegg, Bugatti, McLaren, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Saleen, Hennessey, and many other top brands. To see so many dream cars all gathered in one place is pretty overwhelming.
I apologize for not being able to include photos of every Porsche GT3RS, Nissan GTR, or Lamborghini Aventador. A quick Google search reveals that as of 2018, Lamborghini has produced more than 8,000 Aventadors since the car’s release in 2011, and more than 11,000 Huracan vehicles. The featured cars at Exotics on Broadway are so rare, that they may number in the low hundreds of examples built. Only 349 examples of the Ferrari F50 were ever made, and there were three of them at this event. Cars from Pagani and Koenigsegg are even rarer, with specific models numbering in the dozens worldwide.
And there wasn’t just one of them. I counted a half-dozen Pagani models, mostly Huayras and one yellow Zonda R. There were several Koenigsegg Ageras, a CCX, and the brand new Jesko on display. Everywhere you looked, there was another amazing car to behold. There was even a beautiful blue Lamborghini Centenario coupe, 1 of just 20 in the world. It it no exaggeration to say that this event was like going to supercar heaven.
I hope you enjoy these photos from the 2019 Exotics on Broadway event in Seaside, California.
Unveiled in early 2019 at the Geneva Motor Show, the Jesko is the latest and greatest creation from Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg. Designed as the replacement for the Agera, the new Jesko features a more spacious interior, more powerful engine, and improved aerodynamics. The car is currently on a worldwide press tour and also appeared at The Quail Motorsports Gathering during Car Week. The approximate price is $2.8 million.
Bugatti EB110 SuperSport Carbon
Before the Veyron, Bugatti paved the way with the EB110, which was produced in very limited numbers from 1991-1995. Instead of paint, this example is finished in exposed carbon fiber, and is believed to be the only one like it in existence.
Rimac Concept One
Rimac is a manufacturer of high-performance electric cars based in Croatia. The company had two of their Concept One vehicles on display at Exotics on Broadway. I like the look of the car a lot. From the side, it reminds me of a Factory Five GTM supercar. The car produces the equivalent of 1,088 horsepower and can be yours for around $1 million.
McLaren 720S N-Largo
The McLaren 720s is undoubtedly one of the hottest cars out right now. The N-Largo is a whole-car upgrade offered by German tuning company Novitec, and is limited to just 15 units worldwide. The car features a lower suspension and center-lock wheels, a different body kit, and an engine tune that bumps the McLaren’s power to 794 horsepower (up from the standard 710 horsepower). This example was displayed by TeamLoanSharks from New York.
Matte Blue Ferraris
Most car enthusiasts would be thrilled beyond belief to have a LaFerrari in their garage. Owner @BuckBlu has two of them – a coupe and an Aperta model, both finished in matte blue by Ferrari’s Tailor Made program. Both cars were on display and made for an amazing photo opportunity.
W Motors Fenyr SuperSport
From the department of “If you have to ask the price, you cannot afford it” comes the Fenyr Supersport by Dubai-based W Motors. This $1.9 million hypercar boasts an 800 horsepower engine and a claimed top speed of 245 mph. In production since 2017, the company plans to build 110 of these vehicles in total. The car’s exaggerated styling is distinctly its own and very unique.
McLaren P1 MSO HRE Wheels
The McLaren P1 is a hybrid supercar from McLaren produced between 2013-2015. Just 375 examples were produced worldwide. This one is a one-off customized by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) in Deep Purple with Volcano Orange accents. It is shown on a set of absolutely wild HRE3D+ wheels, which were 3D printed in Titanium by HRE Wheels in Vista, California.
To car spotters, seeing a Koenigsegg in person is a huge treat. At Exotics on Broadway, the Koenigsegg squad rolled in with several cars. There was a silver CCXR Trevita by Boden Autohaus, the orange Regera “Kejsare,” and a number of others including the World Record Agera RS (@277.9mph), and other custom-spec cars including Thor, Vader, Draken, and Phoenix.
Lamborghini Urus Mansory Edition
Lamborghini’s second sport-utility vehicle, the Urus, went on sale in 2017. This one was customized by German tuning company Mansory. The BEASTY is a 1-of-1 creation based on the Mansory Ventus. It features a body kit with lots of forged carbon fiber accents, widebody fender flares, a full custom interior, and lots more. This one belongs to @russian007am and GMPCars and was recently featured in a video from @Shmee150 on YouTube.
From Washington state comes SSC North America and the Tuatara, the follow-up to the company’s Ultimate Aero. The Tuatara is powered by a 5.9L twin turbo V8 producing 1,350 horsepower (or 1,750 hp on E85). Each car will cost around $1.3 million and will be limited to 100 units total.
Shmee150 Ford GT
British businessman Tim Burton (@Shmee150) has made a successful YouTube career of reviewing supercars as well as his own collection, which includes a McLaren Senna and this bespoke Ford GT. Shmee was on site at Exotics on Broadway meeting with fans and was an absolutely wonderful guy to meet in person. He is rapidly approaching 2 million subscribers to his channel.
Christian von Koenigsegg
It was a real treat to see the founder of Koenigsegg Automotive, Mr. Christian von Koenigsegg, in person at Exotics on Broadway, where he was signing autographs and taking photos at his company’s booth.
Koenigsegg Regera “Kejsare”
The Regera is a limited-production vehicle from Koenigsegg in Sweden. Limited to just 80 units worldwide, this hybrid hypercar features an 1,100 hp combustion engine with three electric motors producing 697 hp, for a total output of 1,797 horsepower. This one is chassis no. 18 of 80 and is nicknamed “Kejsare.” It was a bespoke order for Swedish customer @Atiquester.
Pagani Zonda S
Rolls Royce Widebody
Another @russian007am car, this Rolls Royce Dawn convertible was customized with a widebody kit by Novitec. The car is a 1-of-8 limited production, which wears an interesting shade of baby blue over a tan interior.
Ferrari F50 Trio
While the Ferrari F40 has secured its place among the company’s most legendary cars, the F50 is even more exclusive. Just 349 of these cars were built. The front car is chassis no. 001 of 349 and features a yellow stripe along the side trim. The trio of cars belongs to @dennis_akoyaking @mrtrig and @epicwin_f50.
Italian automaker DeTomaso began producing high performance sports cars in the 1960s. Their biggest success was the Pantera, which was sold in the U.S. from 1971-1975, though it continued production in Europe until the early 1990s. A new owner acquired the rights to the DeTomaso name in 2014, and unveiled a new model earlier this year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Summer 2019, coinciding with the 60th Anniversary of DeTomaso. The P72 is a limited-production car based on the Apollo I.E. and will be limited to just 72 units. The retro-styled car looks absolutely wild and was a real head-turner.
Alex Choi McLaren 720s
Automotive YouTuber Alex Choi brought his McLaren 720s to the show, with a rather unusual urban-camouflage inspired scheme with pink and blue accents. The 20 year old has built a following around creating controversial supercars, such as his Lamborhini Huracan featuring an external roll cage and an abundance of lights.
McLaren Senna “Merlin”
The McLaren Senna is a track-focused hypercar from England. It is the third car in McLaren’s Ultimate series, following the F1 and the P1. Named for Formula One racing driver Ayrton Senna, the car is limited to just 500 units worldwide, each one costing around $1.4 million USD. The “Merlin” is a custom-specced car (chassis no. 401) owned by Jeff Klinger (@klingdog).
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ by Savage Garage
YouTubers Savage Garage brought their Lamborghini Aventador SVJ to EOB, still wearing stickers from FuelRun, Ace Spade, and other rallies it’s been on. The SVJ is a limited-edition car with just 963 units produced, and is the first car to feature Lamborghini’s new active aerodynamics system.
The Lamborghini Centenario is a limited-production model that was produced to celebrate the 100th anniversary of company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini. The car is 1 of 40 (20 coupes and 20 roadsters) produced between 2016-2017. This example belongs to Brad Hetrick (@HawaiiBrad) and is finished in Blu Cepheus.
Lamborghini Murcielago by Daily Driven Exotics
It’s no secret that manual-transmission Murcielago LP640’s have been skyrocketing in value. Just 28 of these cars were equipped with Lamborghini’s 6-speed manual, which is much preferred by enthusiasts over the E-Gear transmission. This car and the Daily Driven Exotics crew were posted up in a parking lot across the street from Exotics on Broadway. Never know who you might see during Car Week!
