The Top Marques Motor Show is returning for a sixteenth edition at the Grimaldi Forum. The event, which will open from May 30 to June 3, 2019, will be inaugurated by Prince Albert II.

The most beautiful supercars and hypercars on the planet will soon be gathered in one place at the Top Marques show. Several highlights are on the program of this 2019 edition, placed under the exceptional patronage of Eddie Jordan, David Coulthard, and Thierry Boutsen.

Three world premieres

Salim Zeghdar, President and CEO of the Salim Zeghdar Salon, has announced three key presentations for the 2019 edition. The manufacturer McLaren will preview the much anticipated Grand Tourer, recently announced in Geneva. Other unveilings will be conducted for the Zacaria – the First F1 vehicle homologated for the road (700 horsepower engine) – and the Azaris by Ferox, a six-wheeled vehicle propelled by 4 electric motors that animate its wheels by a central source of energy, which is ready to roll on Mars.

Out of the desire to highlight the show’s commitment to innovation, the organizers also give pride of place to new sports cars. They ought to be very visible this year, especially with Pininfarina and their 1,900 horsepower Battista, as well as the Quantino 48Volt salt water powered machine, which has now covered 350,000 kilometers of tests.

Plenty of exclusives on deck

Faithful to tradition, the show will offer visitors the opportunity to discover plenty of exceptional vehicles such as the Bugatti Chiron Sport, one of the most expensive supercars in the world, priced at 3 million euros; the Aston Martin 003 (a highly anticipated 2021 model); and a special model of the Rolls-Royce Wraith, called “Luminary Collection” and limited to 55 copies, or the Bentley Continental GT No. 9 Edition, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.

Rebellion Timepieces, one of this year’s Top Marques sponsors as well as an exhibitor, will present a unique package composed of two exceptional pieces, the R-One LMP1-P – vehicle winner of the 2016 24h of Le Mans – accompanied by the Magnum 540 Grand Tourbillon Saphir watch. Their combined sales price amounts to a princely 4 million euros.
