Supercars, super boats, superyachts and now a super ship: the line-up for the 2017 edition of Top Marques promises a record-breaking event on a seriously epic scale.
Over the years, Top Marques has been the stage for many a world premier and product launch, but in 2017, it has been chosen as the platform for the launch of the newest and most luxurious cruise liner on earth. On the eve of the event, which is taking place from 20th to 23rd April at the Grimaldi Forum, 700-foot Silver Muse will be officially christened in front of Monaco’s Port Hercules before the ‘super ship’ embarks on her maiden voyage along the Amalfi coast. “We are delighted to be welcoming Silver Muse to Top Marques,” says Managing Director of the event Manoj Bairstow. “She is without any doubt the largest luxury product we have ever had amongst our exhibitors.”
Director of the luxury lifestyle show Steven Saltzman adds, “Top Marques has a tradition for identifying best in class and Silver Muse will be at the summit of cruising on Day One.”Billed as ‘the ultimate car show’, Top Marques will also be presenting a range of top-of-the-line sports cars. Prince Albert II of Monaco himself will be unveiling a number of world debuts and although many of the reveals are top secret, Riviera Insider can announce that visitors can expect to see the likes of the D8 GTO-RS by Donkervoort (the fastest and lightest D8 GTO ever built by Dutch boutique car manufacturer), the 2,000bhp Berus from Keating Supercars in the UK, and the brand new edition of the 1.8 million euro Asfané Italian supercar by Frangivento, which has been named after Princess Charlotte of Monaco.
“Each year, we try to bring our visitors the very latest innovations from the luxury supercar industry. In 2016, we launched the ArcaBoard - the world’s first ever flying hover board, and in 2015, we exhibited the AeroMobil, a flying car,” says Bairstow. “We have some equally incredible surprises up our sleeves for the next edition.”
Top Marques is a unique event that allows its clients the thrill of test driving its showcase vehicles on the famous Monaco Grand Prix circuit. Alongside the main event is the Watch & Jewellery Pavilion, which has made a name for itself independently of Top Marques as a high-profile destination for the world’s must exclusive luxury brands.
