More than 25,000 visitors attended Monaco’s internationally renowned luxury auto show in the Grimaldi Forum, where around 200 of the most exotic supercars, classic cars, motorbikes, and transport innovations were on display.
Multiple sales were confirmed by exhibitors in both the Classic Car and Supercar departments, whilst the first ever Ferrari auction held on the show’s opening day was also heralded a huge success.
Salim Zeghdar, CEO of Top Marques Monaco, said: “This year’s Top Marques Monaco broke records on every level possible! We have never had so many vehicles in the Grimaldi Forum! The Diaghilev was almost fit to bursting with 80 classic cars and motorbikes, whilst unique models from brands such as Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Ferrari, Maserati, McLaren, Porsche and Rolls Royce were nose to nose in the Ravel.
“We were particularly thrilled to have been chosen by Audi France as the launchpad for the world premier of its RS 6 GTO Concept which was a huge hit with the press and the public – as well as Venturi’s FLEX electric rover which visitors could see up close for the first time before it heads to the moon in 2026.
„I’m very proud of this year’s show. More than 70% of exhibitors have already confirmed their wish to return next year, which is a clear sign of the show’s success.”
Other highlights at the 18th edition of the annual supercar show, held under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco was the world launch of the Dallara Tribute IR8, represented by Stars MC, and the launch of the QUANTiNO twentyfive, an electric roadster by nanoFlowcell which runs without a battery.
Several superboats were also on display on the Esplanade outside the Grimaldi Forum, as well as watches and fine jewellery in the Espace Diaghilev.
The event kicked off with an exclusive VIP preview sponsored by Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) for 1,500 guests, where a number of purchases were made even before the public opening on 8 June.
