Take a stroll down any street in Monaco on any day of the year, and the chances of seeing a Ferrari or a Lamborghini are pretty high. Stroll down that same road from April 19th to 22nd during Top Marques Monaco and the probability of spotting a stunning supercar increases one hundred-fold.
Top Marques Monaco is the Principality’s premier automobile show which takes place over four days every April in Monaco’s beach-front congress centre, the Grimaldi Forum. This year the event, which has gained international acclaim since its first edition in 2004, will celebrate its 15th anniversary.
As the leading Monaco helicopter company, Monacair are delighted to partner with such a prestigious event. Along with our airport transfer which can transfer attendees arriving at Nice Airport to the Principality in seven minutes, we are looking forward to proposing itineraries for bespoke Monaco helicopter charters during the event.
Try Before you Buy
Billed by the New York Times as ‘The World’s Most Exclusive Auto Show’, Top Marques Monaco is also thought to be the only live automobile show on the planet where potential buyers get the chance to test drive the supercars that catch their eye before they make a purchase.
The show’s extremely successful USP is that VIP visitors, sponsors and invited guests are allowed to select supercars they would like to try out on a closed circuit of Monaco’s famous F1 Grand Prix circuit from a ‘menu’ they are sent prior to the event.
Other visitors keen to get behind the wheel – or in most cases sit in the passenger seat – of one of the supercars available for test drives can go and chance their luck on the stands themselves. Test drives are at the discretion of each manufacturer so nothing is promised, yet a fair number of visitors do find themselves driving around Monaco in a vehicle they can only dream of owning in the beautiful spring sunshine.
More than 42,000 people attended the show last April to view, try out and, in more cases than you would actually think, buy the supercars and other luxury products exhibited in the Grimaldi Forum exhibition space.
Luxury Cars and More
Initially showcasing just supercars, Top Marques Monaco now includes all facets of a luxury lifestyle including exclusive timepieces, bespoke jewellery, superboats, helicopters and even flying cars.
Visitors to this year’s show, which takes place during the final week of the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters tennis tournament, can expect to see at least four world supercar launches, as well as a large number of ‘green’ vehicles, a sector of the automobile industry that it extremely important to Top Marques Monaco and its patron, H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco.
There will also be incredible watches from leading luxury Swiss brands such as Greubel Forsey and Franck Muller, as well as stunning jewellery collections, interior furnishings and the latest luxury must-haves such as chocolates and gin laced with gold.
New for this year
The 15th edition of Top Marques Monaco will be marked by a number of novelties such as a new Top Marques Restaurant, open to all visitors, which will offer first class dining in a discrete setting within the exhibition as well as ‘The Munchkin Club’, a secure place for children to take part in art and craft activities while they parents peruse the luxury cars and exhibits.
