Petersen Automotive Museum
The Petersen just opened the New “World Tour” Vault and is offering MPG members a tour on Thursday, June 21st at 4:30 PM. This will be the only opportunity to get photos of the brand new Vault.
The World Tour Vault presented by Hagerty, which opened to the public on June 1st, includes more than 250 vehicles including, sports cars, collector cars, Hollywood movie cars, racecars and motorcycles. In addition to the tour, there will be a panel discussion on the Future of Driving featuring McKeel Hagerty (CEO of Hagerty), Bisi Ezerioha (CEO and Chief Engineer of Bisimoto Engineering), Brian Scotto (Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Hoonigan Industries) and Larry Webster (Vice President of Content for Hagerty).
“As the world’s preeminent automotive museum, we constantly strive to educate our guests about automotive history, technology and design and how it has impacted both local and global culture,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “The Vault presented by Hagerty will offer the pubic an opportunity to now select their tour experience and see compelling new content that has never been displayed before at the Petersen.”
Guests of the new vault will find rarely-seen vehicles such as the two-time Le Mans-winning 1966 “Gulf” GT40, a 2018 Heritage Ford GT, a 1929 Bugatti Type 46, a 1936 Delahaye, Steve McQueen’s 1956 Jaguar XKSS, a 2015 Mclaren P1, a 1947 Cisitalia and much more.
“Car fans are going to be blown away by the vault tour,” said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. “Most people haven’t had the opportunity to see a lot of these icons up close before, so we’re thrilled to give them that chance. Cars this special should be seen by everybody.”
Since its reopening in 2015, the Petersen has housed more than 120 years of automotive history in the vault, representing the only museum of its kind to offer a “behind the scenes” look of this size. The expanded tour will present more than 100 new cars and 40,000 square feet of additional display space, nearly tripling the size of the original vault. The docent-led tours will give visitors an even greater look at history’s most iconic Ferraris, Bugattis, Porsches, coach-built cars, hot rods, Hollywood cars, presidential cars, racecars and art cars.
