If you’ve never had the chance of visiting the Los Angeles-based Petersen Automotive Museum, you’re now in luck. In light of the social distancing and lockdown regulations across the States due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the museum is now offering a virtual tour in the form of a two-hour video showcasing more than 200 cars across three of its newest exhibits: Supercars, Redefining Performance (Porsche) and Extreme Conditions.

As its name suggests, the Supercar exhibit holds some of the most iconic supercars of the past century, including a 1991 Ferrari F40, a 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO, and a 1998 McLaren F1 LM.

The Redefining Performance exhibit puts a focus on the evolution of Porsches, featuring vehicles ranging from the 1951 Porsche 356SL Gmünd Coupe to the 1979 Porsche 935 Kremer K3 and ultimately to the 2016 Porsche 911 RSR.

As for Extreme Conditions, the collection spans across 11 custom competition, recreational and utilitarian off-roading cars, showcasing the likes of the famous “Desert Flyer,” a 1989 Porsche 964 that participated at the Mexican 1000, “Goldirocks,” and a rock crawler Jeep that was raced by the late Jessi Combs.

For the full virtual tour, check out the video above, or head over to the museum’s website to learn more.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Jaguar’s 2021 F-PACE SVR packs 550 horsepower.
