If it’s been unbearably hot outside for you this summer, Netflix has got you: August offerings are out and it looks like more than just a few of us are going to settle in for some binge-watching in an air-conditioned room. One of their latest offerings is APEX: The Story of the Hypercar, and now you have no excuse not to see it.


There’s no shortage of other car-related films on this list from USA Today, either. But I’m very much looking forward to the debut of APEX. Created by JF Musial and the team from the /DRIVE YouTube network, it’s the winner of the Jalopnik Film Festival Audience Choice Award.

The movie centers around Christian Von Koenigsegg and the development of his company’s 274 mph One:1, as well as the hyper offerings from McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche and Pagani.

Watch it, love it, repeat.

Also coming in August is our evergreen favorite and the first of our automotive cinematic canon, The Fast and the Furious. And once you’re done with that, head on over to the greatest movie ever made: The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.


August 1 really can’t come quickly enough.
