Referred to as the ‘world’s greatest supercar show on earth’, Top Marques 2015, which took place between 16th – 19th April, certainly lived up to its high expectations. With over 40 breath-taking supercars on display this year, at the 12th edition of Top Marques, it really was a glimpse at what the luxury supercar industry has to offer. In the Principality’s first month of a busy 2015 social calendar, over 42,000 people visited the show in four days.
Amongst many incredible luxury supercars, the highlight of Top Marques 2015 was the Slovakian luxury flying car. Using collapsible insect-like wings, AeroMobil can transform from an automobile into an aeroplane in just a two and a half minutes. It can take off and land in under 100m and it has a top speed of 99mph on the road and 125mph in the air. Moreover, production is not far off with an estimated manufacturing date of just two to three years. Featuring cutting-edge technology, including autopilot and an advanced parachute deployment system, this flying car is a true glimpse of what the future holds.
The dynamic, eco-friendly BMW i8 hybrid
Top Marques 2015 also featured the official launch of the innovative 100% electric Toroidion 1MW Concept car. This high-performance 1,341 horsepower supercar has been adapted for comfortable use on a daily basis and also serious track racing with a potential top speed of 300kmph. Combining the latest technology and high-quality Finnish engineering, this lightweight concept car is pushing the boundaries with its all-new eco-friendly approach.
However, right at the entrance to the luxury car exhibition, it appeared to be the two stunning Nimrod Performance Cars that caught most visitor’s attention. Both the Avanti Rosso and the Katyusha are incredibly unique cars, combining power and beauty with their streamlined bodies and formidable engines. In particular, the Avanti Rosso has a V12 engine, allowing it to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds. Top Marques also exhibited many famous brands and their latest supercars on offer, such as a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari 458 and McLaren 650 S.
Taking place in the Grimaldi Forum in the heart of the Principality of Monaco, Top Marques offered VIP guests a unique opportunity to test-drive an exclusive selection of supercars. In 2015, over 1,300 enthusiasts took the opportunity to test-drive on the roads of Monaco. However, for those who missed out this time, there are many luxury car rentals along the French Riviera, giving you the possibility to take a powerful supercar for upcoming events in the Riviera next month, the Cannes Film Festival and the 2015 Monaco Grand Prix.
