Since 2004, the Top Marques show has been bringing together the best of luxury vehicles in Monaco.

It has been described as “the most exclusive car show in the world” by the New York Times. Since it was first held in 2004, Top Marques has been attracting the biggest names in the car industry to the Principality each year, along with niche manufacturers (Bugatti, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, Bentley, McLaren, Aston Martin, Maserati, Pininfarina, etc.). “The aim of Top Marques is to present the most extraordinary supercars and hypercars around right now and coming soon,” says organiser Salim Zeghdar.

Top Marques is intended to be an exclusive platform. In 2022, a dozen global and European launches were unveiled at the Grimaldi Forum, while the very last Aston Martin DB5, driven by 007 in the film Goldfinger, was on sale for 3 million euros.

An iconic car complete with machine guns, rotating licence plates and even smoke screen protection… Innovative and even “flying” vehicles (cars, motorcycles and helicopters) are also regularly presented at the show. The organisers aim to ensure that the new technology and eco-innovation sector accounts for at least 30% of all participants by 2025.

In 2022, Top Marques launched a section dedicated to classic cars in partnership with Rétromobile. Three thousand square metres where collectors and car lovers can view – or buy – some legendary cars from the 1950s to the 1990s (such as a Maserati 3500 GT Superleggera from 1960) or F1 vehicles driven by top drivers. This year, the show has chosen the car influencer GMK as its ambassador.

Although a prestigious car show, Top Marques also has an area devoted to high-end watches and jewellery, as well as one for super boats. An art gallery presents works of art inspired by the mechanics and innovations of transport.

It was at Top Marques that the MC One, a made-in-Monaco flying car, was presented. The vehicle weighs 160 kilograms, is equipped with eight electric propeller engines and has an upward acceleration capacity of 17 metres per second and a top speed of between 120 and 140 kilometres per hour. Its designer, MC Clic, previously took part in the flying Renault 4L project.

The Monegasque company, which specialises in drones, has also designed an autonomous version of the vehicle, capable of looping the loop in mid-air.
