THE ONLY MAN THAT CAN™
With 27 days left before the doors open on the only live supercar show in the world, Lawrie Lewis, Chairman and mastermind behind Top Marques Monaco spoke to the media at the press conference on 16th March 2011. Held in the test drive pits of the Grimaldi Forum he publicized news for the show's 8th edition to be held 14-17th April 2011.
"I'm delighted to announce an unprecedented number of world premiere launches this year at Top Marques Monaco - six supercars from around the world. In addition, we will have two new dedicated areas for the show: superboats in Port Fontvieille and haute horlogerie in the Salon Guelfe at the Grimaldi Forum."
Top Marques Monaco is unrivalled for its unique experience; it's non-conforming, pioneering and breathtaking. Visitors can touch and feel the pure power and precision of the supercars and customized luxury cars with a test drive on the iconic Monaco Formula 1 circuit. The extraordinary awaits discerning guests who seek a showcase of cherry-picked extreme machines, limited series watches, rare jewels and bespoke luxury artistry, all bonded by visionary craftsmanship.
Now for the first time, we launch Top Marques Superboats' day boats and tenders. They will dock on the esplanade of the Grimaldi Forum as well as in Port Fontvieille for exclusive sea trials extending our winning concept: See it! Drive it! Buy it! With Roger Dubuis as Official Watchmaker and Partner for Top Marques Superboats, the premiere edition will include stunning motor yachts by Azimut-Benetti; a super tender - 'The Windy SR 52h', a joint force accomplishment by Windy Boats and world-renowned yacht designer Ed Dubois and a world premiere of Cranchi's 'Black Magic'. Top Marques Superboats becomes Monaco's only show dedicated exclusively to this category of water vessel and we gratefully acknowledge the Ports of Monaco for their support to us as we launch this new feature to the show.
Those with high and discerning standards for luxury living will appreciate that Top Marques Monaco, in all its facades, is about being witness to excellence. It is about the adrenalin rush of being first to grip the wheel for a test drive of the industry's latest, pioneering innovations. It's about being first to discover and own a limited edition timepiece created by a master watchmaker or a stunning, made-to-measure piece by the finest jewelry houses. It's about being face to face with the trail-blazing, car manufacturers who experiment and pioneer by pushing limits. It's about becoming one of the select and privileged few to own a state-of-the-art automobile, fresh off the engineer's drawing board. It's also about a well-deserved, exquisite extravagance that is unique to you or the recipient of your gift.
Top Marques Monaco will open at 9.30am on 14th April 2011. Esteemed Mayor of Monaco, Mr Georges Marsan, will cut the red ribbon. Later that evening the doors will close to the public and reopen at 6pm for the arrival of VVIP guests and celebrities for a private, intimate viewing of the show followed by a champagne cocktail.
