Top Marques Monaco

Dubbed as the world’s most exclusive supercar show, Top Marques Monaco is the only place on Earth where you can experience the latest state-of-the-art machines with test drives on the Formula 1 circuit. 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 Roadster whose entire chassis is constructed with the highest grade carbon fiber, combined with a BMW 6 turbo engine.

At Top Marques one can really experience a car: you 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. To top that off, it isn’t just staggeringly beautiful cars that will be on the display, but also sleekly designed Superboats with cutting-edge design and speed to match and unashamedly attractive, unique and expensive watches.

One powerboat in particular that we are keen to eye-witness is the otherworldly Spire Boat Concept designed by one of our favourite French fashion designers. For someone who has designed perfumes, make-up and fashion with a strong fetishist bent, Thierry Mugler certainly produced a remarkable effort in reimagining this 100 mph 31-foot speedboat with electric coupe roof.

The FT goes on to say that “Top Marques is shamelessly aimed at a super-rich clientele” and this year we’ve got a 10 tickets to giveaway to our readers. The first to email chloe@hautetoday.com will receive their invitation.
