It’s already been billed as the most exclusive supercar show in the world and this year, Top Marques Monaco will make its first foray into classic cars with a number of vintage vehicles on display.
In the same year as the Historic Grand Prix comes to Monaco, four historic classic cars will be showcased at Top Marques Monaco 2014. The extraordinary vehicles will include an Adenauer Mercedes Benz 300, which belonged to Todor Zhivkov, the last communist dictator of Bulgaria.
There are an unprecedented number of world premieres at the show this year including, five supercars, two luxury motorbikes, three superboats and the latest VVIP helicopter by Agusta Westland.
Visitors can take part in three days of test drives in a selection of supercars including a Lamborghini by Hamann, a Tesla and a Ferrari. Other highlights in the supercar section include the Zenvo ST1, created in Denmark which is capable of speeds of 0 to 100 km/ph in three seconds and the Lykan Hypersports, manufactured by W Motors which can be yours for a cool €2.5 million
Under the banner of sustainable vehicles will be the Energica Ego, the world’s first all-electric superbike; the Mando Footloose, a chainless electric bike from Korea and Forza G, a handcrafted luxury electric bike from Italy. This equates to an unparalleled collection of green machines that also includes the new Quant e-sports limousine that was initially presented as a concept at Top Marques four years ago.
During the four-day event, held over the Easter weekend in Monaco there is a chance for guests to design their very own supercar in a 3D virtual studio created by British design and engineering consultancy Envisage, who are the team behind Project Judi which is being unveiled by David Brown Automotive at the show.
Guests can take advantage of a new partnership with Amber Lounge, the original F1 lifestyle event made in Monaco and held at race locations around the globe from Abu Dhabi and Barcelona to Shanghai and Singapore. Amber Lounge will be opening two spaces at Top Marques including a luxury VIP lounge.
There will be a unique window onto one of the most luxurious resorts in the world, Velaa Private Island, an exceptional private retreat with service that goes beyond traditional resorts. Four bedroom residences with their own pool, spa and gym, a private submarine, the Maldives greatest selection of vintage wines, and cuisine overseen by a famous Michelin-starred chef are just some of the island’s attributes.
When you have text driven your supercar, walked around your superboat and admired the green machines on display, why not take the opportunity to indulge in the most expensive facial in the world – the Gold Mask Treatment – by Margy’s of Monte Carlo, which is available for €4900, or treat yourself or your wife with a unique luxury handbag, wallet or clutch sourced by Hermes for Monegasque company Corium.
