Los Angeles, California: the epitome of luxury, comfort, and sick cars.

Sunset Boulevard is the ideal spot to host a hypercar show featuring tons of cars that exist merely to impress. You won’t see LaFerraris, Bugattis, or the newly unveiled Koenigsegg Jesko in many other places, especially in the US.

Hosted at Sunset Plaza, the show was already packed by 8 in the morning. People from every part of Southern California flocked to the show in hopes of seeing hypercars they can only dream of owning.

“Sunset GT is a very fun show,” said photographer Aidan Powell. “It’s cool to be here today.”

From the beginning, the Koenigsegg Jesko was the main feature of the show, surrounded by other Koenigseggs and Pininfarinas. Shadowed by the Jesko, the show also featured a LaFerrari Aperta, a Bugatti Chiron, and even an R32 GTR Skyline.

“Sunset GT was sick,” said photographer Bianca Heintz. “Sick as frick.”

While the show presented hundreds of supercars and hypercars, from Lamborghinis to McLarens to Porsches, the spotlight remained centered on the Koenigseggs and Pininfarinas. Koenigsegg holds the record for the fastest production car, with the Agera RS reaching a top speed of 278 MPH. Pininfarina, however, is known for designing many models of Ferraris, Maseratis, and Alfa Romeos.

LA drivers are known for having these kinds of cars, so it was a big deal that Pininfarina was at the show. The show was in the most prime spot for these cars to appear. In my opinion, the LA drive was worth the gas money.
