Top Marques Monaco is revered as the world’s most exclusive supercar show where you can experience the latest state-of-the-art machines with test drives on the Formula 1 circuit – mere weeks before the famous race takes place. Car afficionados can’t beat the sensation of manoeuvring the Racasse corner in a Koenigsegg Agera R – BBC’s Top Gear Hyper Car of the Year and a Guinness Book of World Records holder. It does a thrilling 0-300 km/h in 14.53 seconds. Nor will they be able to resist the staggering power of the Roding Rodster whose entire chassis is constructed with the highest grade carbon fiber, combined with a BMW 6 in line 320 hp Turbo engine. And best news of all, Top Marques Monaco will launch the world premiere of the stunning, handbuilt Renovatio T 500 from Tushek in Slovenia.
At Top Marques we think our way is the only way to experience a car. The old practice of car shows prohibited the public getting up close and viewing was from behind a velvet rope. At Top Marques visitors can touch and feel the pure power and precision of the supercars; the arresting fumes of petrol ready to burn and the anticipation of powerful engines revving into action in the test drive pits dominate the show.
There are no barriers at Top Marques – except at the VIP bar. No limits on speed. Tick. Though visitors often simply stop and stare. No pesky velvet red ropes protecting the cars. Tick. No parameters curtailing the imagination. Tick. Instead Top Marques is about possibilities that you won’t find anywhere else. It is about visitors getting into the car and behind the wheel. It is about meeting the creators, designers and engineers of these masterpieces. The show’s ethos says it all: See it! Drive it! Buy it!
This exclusive show, now in its ninth year and growing (by 20% this year – with an extra 500m²), is about the extraordinary; it is about supercars in their natural environment – on the Monaco Grand Prix track – allowing you to put machines through the motions before you buy your heart’s desire; Above all Top Marques is a consumer show. Top Marques is not just staggeringly beautiful cars, but also sleekly designed Superboats with cutting-edge design and speed to match and unashamedly attractive, unique and expensive watches. Our “wacky racers” – as the Financial Times quipped about our supercar aficionados in an article this month, can also sea trial in the Med the most stunning power boats, luxury tenders and toys of the water kind with one of our high performance watches on their wrist. The FT goes on to say that “Top Marques is shamelessly aimed at a super-rich clientele”. Thanks to our buyers the car engineers can continue to explore pioneering technology such as electric, to produce cleaner and more efficient vehicles.
Nothing is more desirable than the confidence one feels as you fit like a glove into the leather bound driving seat and glide along with pure power in your hands in a car, which at any moment can turn your whim into a 0-200 kph flight of fancy. Top Marques Monaco will spearhead the car industry into new territory next month, 19-22th April 2012.
