TOP MARQUES is Monaco’s undisputed premier auto show; but there is so much more to the luxury exhibition than its dazzling selection of supercars.
There must be no mistake: Top Marques Monaco, which takes place from April 14th to 17th at the Grimaldi Forum in the heart of the international capital of luxury, is first and foremost an auto show.
Now in its 13th year, Top Marques is one of the industry’s leading events featuring world class supercars, innovative electric vehicles and exciting tuners. Its’ Unique-Selling-Point is that it’s the only event in the world to offer potential clients the chance to test drive the supercars on a section of the Monaco F1 Grand Prix circuit.
But the WOW Factor doesn’t stop there. The ultra glamourous event, sponsored by the private bank the Edmond de Rothschild Group, also encompasses other aspects of a luxury lifestyle including a selection of superboats displayed outside the Grimaldi Forum which are available for sea trials in the Port of Monaco.
Steven Saltzman, director of Top Marques Monaco, said today: “We are very proud of the fact that we are Monaco’s premier auto show, but we are equally thrilled by the other facets of Top Marques which combined make it a truly unmissable show with something for everyone.
“Every year we endeavour to raise the bar by exhibiting ground-breaking inventions and revolutionary machines which look set to change the course of transportation on the road, sea and in the air.
“Last year we had the AeroMobil, the world’s first flying car, and this year, we have the ArcaBoard, the first ever hover board inspired by Back to the Future that can actually fly. Another highlight is sure to be a transforming luxury boat which turns into a floating swimming deck. We can’t wait to share all these incredible exhibits with the visitors.”
Mr Saltzman said he was also hugely thrilled to welcome back as sponsor Burgess – global leaders in the superyacht industry – who will be present at Top Marques to discuss the very best in superyachts for sale and charter.
