It’s summer and most of you are going on a holiday, came back from a holiday or maybe you just stay home. There are so many beautiful destinations but as a spotter, Monaco is the place to be in the summer. Just like during Top Marques Monaco it’s just crazy and full of supercars. Let’s go back to April when we visited Monaco. In this photo report we want to give you an impression of our visit is this special week.
Top Marques Monaco is an exhibition where we’re looking forward to, and we’re not the only ones. Every year more and more spotters and car fanatics head to Monaco to enjoy the total madness during this week. This year, the trip to Monaco was a good preparation for the Gumball 3000. How comfortable is the Ferrari 599 GTO on long distances, that’s what we were trying to find out. As every year, we present you a photo report of this week and also this year we selected fifty pictures.
This year was a special year. With the preparations for the Gumball 3000 we had to take our Ferrari to Monaco. With its special wrap we were sure it would get a lot of attention on the Casino Square. On Wednesday, the day of arrival, we were immediately recognized by the first spotters. On Thursday, the first day of the exhibition we drove around to show our Ferrari.
The Top Marques exhibition was as interesting as always. Despite the fact that most of the famous cars were already introduced on the Geneva Motor Show, you see a lot of small manufacturers and tuners which you normally won’t see. Several cars were parked in the pit lane and it was possible to drive these cars. The best cars in the pit lane came from Hamann Motorsport with their Hamann X6 M and the Hamann Hawk Roadster. They drove through Monaco all day with the amazing loud sounds from the cars. The police wasn’t very strict this week luckily. It’s all part of the show where the motto is: See it, Drive it, Buy it. Millions of Dollars are spent on this exhibition every year.
We can recommend you the Friday night. On Friday night there is a cocktail party in Hotel de Paris where all cars from Top Marques are parked on the Casino Square. It is one of the most crazy nights in the year. Supercars are parked everywhere! Visiting Top Marques is something a real car fanatic has to do once in his life. You can see it as the 24 hours race of Le Mans or the Geneva Motor Show. It’s hard to describe the feeling, you just have to be there!
