Top Marques Monaco 2016

Walter Raymond

It is the only global event where potential buyers can test drive the vehicle of their dreams in the Formula 1 circuit of Montecarlos's Grand Prix.

The 13th edition of Top Marques, the emblematic exhibit of classic cars and luxury products will take place in Monaco from 14 to 17 April. The event is under the patronage of HSH Albert II, Prince of Monaco. What makes this exhibit so unique is the possibility to test your car on the Formula 1 track of the Montecarlo Grand Prix. On the eve of the grand opening, the Foro Grimaldi Conference Center is abuzz with the arrival of the stunning vehicles as they make the way thought the shores of the Mediterranean.

A Tribute to James Bond

Among the most coveted pieces, you’ll find the Aston Martin DB10 used by Daniel Craig in the memorable racing scene from Spectre; its rival is also on view; the C-X75 Jaguar that chased it through the streets of Rome at very high speeds. To complete the tribute, Aston Martin will showcase several exclusive models designed for the James Bond Saga. James Bond lovers will also find several of the gadgets used by the famous British spy.

The show will present—and allow—prospective buyers to test several lesser known super sports cars. Among them, the Icona Vulcano built entirely of titanium, as well as the impressive Mazzanti Evantra V8, made of carbon fiber and able to reach over 271 mph. On the other hand, the Dutch carmaker Donkervoort—in collaboration with Audi Quattro—will present the sporty and powerful Donkervoort D8 GTO, which allows the driver to go from standard to race mode with just a push of a button. Another anticipated attraction is the Nemesis RR able to reach a top speed of 280 mph. All the legendary automakers will make their presence in Monaco, including Mercedes-Benz, Rolls Royce, Porsche, Lanborghini, Maseratti, and Jaguar.

Brand Innovations

Top Marques is also the ideal forum for luxury producers of superyachts, private jets, famous jewelers, and other exclusive service providers to showcase their most surprising proposals. Real Estate firms and private banks also come to Monaco at the end of March looking for those affluent clients.

And visitors will have their whims. You could ride a super sports yacht at high speed aboard the Kormaran, a 22-foot carbon fiber vessel that turns into a transformer. You could also observe the Martin Jetpack personal craft soar to 3,000 feet. If you are a fan of Swiss horology or French jewelry, there will be a broad display of pieces to choose, and the famous antique shop La Tibétaine will highlight rare pieces from ancient Chinese dynasties.
