The Cannes Film Festival is no longer about the movies that happen there. Proof? The Louis Vuitton pop up store, the Diamond studded Maybach 62S that debuted there, the Superyacht 4You, the Remy Martin VOSP Cannes limited edition cognac and the chartered yachts. As the festivities wrapped up, there had to be some keepsakes and souvenirs as a reminder for a time well spent. Then it would help if you had headed to the Plage de la Croisette along the Mediterranean shore. Apart from the gold- and diamond-encrusted smartphone and tablet cases, there were emerald-studded BlackBerry kits to buy.
Apart from the Maybach, other luxury cars on display included a shinning bright red $200,000 2012 Mercedes Benz AMG SLS Gull Wing parked outside the Cannes Carlton Intercontinental Hotel. Also on display was the Ducati 2012 Diavel, the stunning $20,000 bike with a Ducati Testastretta race engine. If you like low seas instead, there was a mini-submarine on display, courtesy U-Boat Worx. The $1.5 million subs can dive 100 meters with a traveling range of up to 1,000 meters.
