It is the task of the Louwman Museum to share all facets and periods of automotive evolution with the public. Last year, the focus was on cyclecars from the early 20th century. This time, the time machine is set to the 90s. We highlight the supercars from that era because, in that decade, there seemed to be a true craze around high-performance sports cars. The foundation for this was laid in the 80s. New brands emerged, and many introductions were scheduled for the early 90s. However, a financial crisis around 1992/93 made wealthy car enthusiasts cautious, causing the order intake for supercars to collapse, leading to new sports car brands going bankrupt or projects being prematurely terminated.

Nevertheless, numerous interesting and impressive super sports cars appeared in the 90s. The Louwman Museum managed to bring together a unique collection. The term supercar is defined here as having a limited production volume, a minimum of 500 horsepower, and a top speed of over 300 km/h. Within this definition, a diversity of models can be admired, categorized into various types: production models, limited editions, homologation cars, and prototypes. Some models have never been shown in the Netherlands before, not even in the Benelux. The group of sports cars as a whole has never been seen in the Netherlands, not in the Benelux, and possibly not even in Europe. Perhaps not even in the world…
