HYPERCARS IN RALEIGH | THE ULTIMATE EXHIBITION
This August 9th, through the end of September, Car Space Raleigh opens its doors to an experience that's nothing short of automotive poetry. In the world of coworking, Car Space Raleigh isn't merely an oasis for entrepreneurs and professionals; it's a sanctuary for car enthusiasts of all ages and backgrounds.
For our first ever exhibition, Car Space Raleigh is proud to display four of the most unique and exclusive hypercars in the world: an Apollo IE, a Bugatti Chiron 110th Anniversary Edition, a Koenigsegg Regera, and a McLaren Senna GTR. On loan from the illustrious HyperNFT private collection of Costa Mesa, California, these aren’t just vehicles; they’re legends, stories, and symphonies on wheels.
Apollo IE - The 'Carbon Dragon'
1 of 10 produced globally
780 hp 6.3 L naturally-aspirated V12 engine
The Apollo IE (Intensa Emozione) is more than just a car; it is an experience that few have had the pleasure of witnessing in its full splendor.
The IE's foundation is deeply rooted in its heritage. To appreciate the intricacies of the 'Carbon Dragon', one must first understand the tumultuous journey of Apollo Automobil. The company, initially christened under the name 'Gumpert', struggled despite producing one of the fastest cars to lap the Nürburgring. But in a beautiful tale of rebirth and rebranding, the team, fueled by unyielding passion and resilience, transformed Gumpert's legacy into the rising phoenix known today as Apollo Automobil. This dedication to revival, innovation, and persistence is palpable in the very fiber of the Apollo IE.
The meticulous design of the IE is a marvel in itself. A symphony of engineering and art, the car encapsulates a precise balance between form and function. Its exposed carbon fiber body isn’t just a design choice; it's a testament to the brand's obsession with performance-oriented craftsmanship. The aerodynamics aren't simply a result of the need for speed, but an ode to the fluidity and essence of motion. Each line, curve, and panel serves a dual purpose: to capture the gaze and to cut through the air with minimal resistance. Underneath its mesmerizing shell rests a naturally aspirated V12 engine, capable of producing a heart-thumping symphony that resonates with the very soul of automotive enthusiasts. The ownership of this marvel is limited to an elite few who understand and appreciate its significance in the realm of hypercars. The owners are not just purchasing a vehicle; they are investing in a piece of automotive history, a tangible representation of passion, determination, and evolution. It's a narrative of rebirth, of rising against all odds, and of achieving the pinnacle of engineering prowess.
At Raleigh's Car Space, the Apollo IE stands as a testament to the power of resilience, craftsmanship, and unadulterated passion. It symbolizes the journey of countless professionals who, much like Apollo, have faced challenges but continue to chase their dreams with unwavering determination. The juxtaposition of this hypercar in a coworking environment like Car Space is not just aesthetic but philosophic; it serves as a daily reminder that with passion, precision, and perseverance, anything is achievable.
Bugatti Chiron 110th Anniversary Edition
1 of 20 produced globally
1.480 hp 8.0 L quad-turbocharged W16 engine
The lineage of Bugatti is laden with tales of grandeur, a tradition that proudly echoes in the Chiron 110th Anniversary Edition. As a tribute to the brand’s rich heritage, this specific edition masterfully blends the historic spirit of Bugatti with contemporary breakthroughs in automotive technology. Born in an era where automobiles were largely viewed as functional commodities, Ettore Bugatti was an outlier. He believed in the art of automaking, envisaging his creations as moving sculptures rather than mere machines. This philosophy became the bedrock upon which the empire of Bugatti was built.
The design of the Chiron is a manifestation of this belief. Every curve, line, and aerodynamic contour serves a two-fold purpose: functional brilliance and aesthetic magnificence. Its fluidic design, influenced by the cascading landscapes of Molsheim (Bugatti's birthplace), belies the raw power it contains. The 110th Anniversary Edition stands out with unique color schemes and badges, evoking a sense of nostalgia while firmly being planted in the modern era. The car is not just a marvel of engineering; it’s a canvas where history meets the future. While the base Chiron is itself a testament to Bugatti's prowess, the 110th Anniversary Edition is a love letter to its longstanding patrons, a reminder of the brand’s indomitable spirit and rich heritage. Owners of this masterpiece aren’t just privileged drivers; they're custodians of a fragment of automotive history.
Technically, the Bugatti Chiron is nothing short of a marvel. Its capability to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 2.3 seconds, and a top speed that's electronically limited to 261 mph (though it’s believed it can go even faster), is testament to the brand’s relentless pursuit of perfection. Beyond these staggering numbers, it’s the finesse with which power is delivered that truly sets the Chiron apart. It's the harmonious balance between raw power, luxury, and precision that makes it a masterpiece.
Within the dynamic ecosystem of Car Space Raleigh, the presence of such an automotive icon serves as a daily inspiration. It's a reminder that when ambition is paired with precision and passion, the results are timeless.

Koenigsegg's journey began in a hangar located in southern Sweden. It was here, shielded from the world's eyes, that Christian von Koenigsegg, at just 22 years old, started his mission to create the perfect supercar. Over the years, his dream grew into a brand that consistently defied expectations and continually reset benchmarks. Each car from Koenigsegg's stable is not just a testament to speed and power, but also to Swedish craftsmanship, ingenuity, and a relentless pursuit of perfection. From its early models like the Koenigsegg CC to the Jesko and Gemera of today, the evolution of the brand is a fascinating narrative of overcoming technical challenges and redefining what's possible.
The design of the Regera is a harmonious blend of aerodynamic necessity and artistic vision. Its body lines are both aggressive and sleek, reflecting its dual nature of a wild beast and a refined masterpiece. Elements like the 'dihedral synchro-helix' door mechanism, which rotates out and upwards, are both functional and a nod to the brand's penchant for drama and showmanship. The Regera’s interiors are no less captivating, offering opulent luxury with state-of-the-art tech, ensuring the driver is both comfortable and in complete control of this magnificent beast.
The technical marvels of the Regera extend beyond its revolutionary Direct Drive system. The car's ability to reach speeds of 0 to 250 mph in under 20 seconds and then back to a complete stop in mere moments is mind-boggling. This prowess doesn't come just from its power but also from innovations like its active rear wing, which provides optimal downforce. Much like Car Space Raleigh, which houses this gem, the Regera represents a space where innovation meets legacy, where dreams meet reality. Being among the rare few to own a Regera is not just about owning a car, but possessing a piece of history, a fragment of Christian von Koenigsegg's dream. And Car Space Raleigh, with its emphasis on exclusivity and pioneering spirit in the coworking realm, is the perfect backdrop for such an automotive magnum opus.
McLaren Senna GTR

814 hp 4.0 L twin-turbocharged V8 engine
From its origins, McLaren has been at the forefront of motorsports and innovation. Born in New Zealand, Bruce McLaren founded his racing team in 1963. Initially recognized for their achievements in Formula One and the Can-Am series, they soon began dominating the global stage. The McLaren Group has always been driven by a commitment to pushing the limits, a philosophy that Bruce McLaren himself summarized as: "Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone."
The Senna GTR, named in honor of Ayrton Senna, embodies this essence of achievement and tribute to motorsport legends. Ayrton's association with McLaren during his illustrious career has left an indelible mark on the racing world. With his tenacity, skill, and unparalleled commitment, Senna exemplified what the brand stood for. Translating this spirit into the Senna GTR, McLaren ensured that every element of the car resonated with track-oriented perfection. The aggressive front splitter, the iconic rear wing, and the functional yet aesthetic louvres are not just design elements; they are aerodynamic features refined through years of racing experience. Its lightweight structure, combined with the powerful V8, ensures that the Senna GTR delivers track performance while being a sight to behold.
Ownership of the McLaren Senna GTR is more than just possession of a hypercar; it’s owning a chapter of motorsport history. The car is a tribute to relentless engineering and the spirit of one of the greatest racing drivers the world has ever seen. The same commitment to legacy and innovation is evident at Car Space Raleigh. Here, members are not just working; they're crafting legacies, much like McLaren, in their respective fields. Every day at Car Space Raleigh mirrors the precision, passion, and drive encapsulated in the Senna GTR.
