Engines Exposed
January 9 - February 28, 2016


You can learn only so much about a car from the outside. You have to look under the hood to see what it’s really made of. So for just eight weeks, we’ll be raising the hoods of a few of our most memorable vehicles. That’s where a car reveals its true character: its class, its brawn, its heart.

It’s an unprecedented excursion as we pop the hoods of more than 40 of the most iconic cars ever made, including our Bugatti Type 41 Royale Convertible, our 1962 Mustang 1, the 1963 Chrysler Gas Turbine and the remarkable 1916 Woods Dual Power Hybrid Coupe, a car that was 80 years ahead of its time.
