Organisers of the show, being sponsored for the fourth consecutive year by private bank the Edmond de Rothschild group, announced today that the following supercars would be present:

  • The EVANTRA by Mazzanti Automobili, inspired by the beautiful landscapes and art found in one of Italy’s most stunning regions, Tuscany

  • The ICONA VULCANO, the world’s first titanium 220mph supercar built by a design house based in Italy
  • The FALCARTO, designed with passion by German startup Halcón SuperSport combining cutting-edge technology with spirited elegance

  • One of only 499 Limited Edition  Ferrari LAFERRARIS in the world with top speeds of up to 230mph and a price tag of more than €3.5million

Top Marques Monaco’s Managing Director Manoj Bairstow said: “We are very much looking forward to the 13th edition of Top Marques, which promises to be an extremely exciting show.

“At this stage in the planning of Top Marques, I don’t think we have ever had so many stunning supercars signed up, and I personally can not wait to see them all lined up together in the Grimaldi Forum.”

Mr Bairstow said there would be a large number of other extraordinary vehicles also showcased in the Ravel Hall at the Grimaldi Forum, from world premium tuners to game-changing electric vehicles.

“We are also planning a number of surprise exhibitors for the 2016 edition of Top Marques Monaco which unfortunately we are not able to reveal just yet. Watch this space.”

He added: “Top Marques would not be possible without the continuing support of the Principality of Monaco and our patron, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II. I am also very grateful to partners such as the Edmond de Rothschild group who are returning for the third year.”

Edmond de Rothschild is one of Europe’s oldest banking institutions now present in 19 countries across the world including Monaco.

Earlier this year a record breaking 42,000 people visited Top Marques 2015, with more than 1300 test drives carried out on a section of Monaco’s F1 GP circuit.

The event, primarily a supercar show which has grown to encompass all facets of a luxury lifestyle with exclusive watches, bespoke jewellery and superboats also for sale, is now Monaco’s third biggest annual event.

Up to 70% of all exhibitors made sales through the show, the slogan of which is ‘SEE IT, DRIVE IT, BUY IT’. 

Tickets for Top Marques Monaco 2016 are now on sale, including a limited number of Multi-Day Premium passes which give VIP access to the show and the opportunity to eat in Top Marques’ Supercar Restaurant.

Evantra is the supercar of Mazzanti Automobili, the Italian car manufacturer from Tuscany. The beautiful landscapes and Italian art inspired designer Luca Mazzanti to create this masterpiece.

Evantra is completely handmade by a small team of experts, chosen because of their unique know-how and true passion, both of which are reflected in the Evantra.

Just five examples of this supercar are produced per year, each one tailor-made to satisfy the wishes of the clients. The Evantra has a 7.0L V8 naturally aspirated mid-engine and is capable of 751hp which accelerates the supercar from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds.



Hand-crafted by skilled artisans in America, Trion SuperCars has developed an advanced ultra-luxury, high performance line of vehicles designed around the driver. We provide the excitement throughout the vehicle design. 

The exterior lines are flawless from the front growl to the captivating tail configuration. The interior packaging will comfortably accommodate 96th percentile (6’4″) drivers in all models. The rear trunk was specifically developed to accommodate golf clubs or luggage so owners do not have to car swap for different functions.

Equipped with active aero-dynamics that are programmable to suit the drivers mood,Trion SuperCars strives for absolute perfection in product execution and customer satisfaction.

With over 2000hp from its twin turbo charged V8 Engine, the Nemesis can accelerate from 0–60 in 2.8 seconds with top speeds of more than 270 mph.



The Vulcano Titanium is a one-off creation from Italian design house ICONA and a world first with its unique titanium and carbon fiber body. Inspiration for the Vulcano came from the world’s fastest plane, the Blackbird SR-71.

The naked titanium body is a sculpture, revealing its 10,000 hours of hand-crafted work in the most pure form. The Vulcano’s strongly sculpted body side and voluptuous shapes evacuate the hot air from the engine and reduce air turbulence generated by the wheels.

The Vulcano has a mid-front engine calibrated for homologated road and race use with an optimum balance of usability and efficiency. Capable to be tuned to well over 1000 hp should the owner demand it, the optimized 670 hp and 840 N/m of its supercharged V8 is sourced from the record-beating ZR1 and is coupled with a paddle-shift close ratio gearbox from Automac Modena.

The Vulcano can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and 120 mph in 8.8 seconds. With its bare handcrafted titanium body, this beautiful and voluptuous 220 mph hypercar definitely brings together the Beauty and the Beast!



After their impressive premiere in 2015 at the IAA, Frankfurt and the Dubai International Motor Show, the Halcón SuperSport team presents their interpretation of a synergy of raw performance and elegant, powerful contours under the unique and luxury oriented glass dome of the Grimaldi Forum.

In a limited worldwide edition of 25 cars, the carbon crafted FALCARTO stands for exclusive, German handmade perfection with loving attention to details and sophisticated technology.



With an acceleration of 0-100 kmh in 2.8 seconds and a power-to-weight ratio of less than two, the Donkervoort D8 GTO is one of the fastest street-legal cars in the world. Boasting a power rating of 340 to 380 hp and 450 Nm of torque starting at around 1600 rpm thanks to the longitudinally mounted Audi 5-cylinder 340 hp 2.5 litre TFSI engine. Significantly larger than its predecessors, yet – at around 700 kg – hardly heavier; ninety percent of the GTO’s body consists of in-house developed and produced carbon fiber.

What’s more, the D8 GTO is surprisingly easy to drive! Hailed by the international automotive press and winner of various super tests worldwide.

A Donkervoort is not just a car; it’s an experience. And that term has taken on new meaning with the GTO. A real car, for real men. 

Donkervoort Automobielen, a family business founded by Joop Donkervoort in 1978, builds ultra lightweight and extremely fast super cars without any modern electronic driving aids, such as ABS (Anti-lock braking system), Electronic stability program (ESP) or power steering.
