Top Marques Monaco hosts Prince Albert II

During his tour of the Top Marques Monaco supercar show over the weekend, Prince Albert II was spotted admiring the latest electric vehicles and chatting with influencers and innovators, including a 10-year-old artist and car enthusiast from England. 

On Saturday 8th June, Prince Albert II headed down to the Grimaldi Forum to pay a visit to the 19th edition of Top Marques, one of the world’s leading – and most exclusive – car shows.  

The Prince took some time to explore the various outdoor exhibits on the Esplanade, including Brabus, Cauchi Design and Frauscher x Porsche, before embarking on a tour of the indoor section of the show accompanied by Emeric Garcia, the director of Top Marques, and Christine Salti, the director of Monaco Check-in, the company that organises the event.

Prince Albert visited the showcases of the latest McLaren Artura Spider, nanoFlowcell’s Quantino and Bertone’s new GB110, and also stopped off in the Classic Car area, where he met with former F1 driver Thierry Boutsen of Boutsen Classic Cars and enjoyed a personal introduction to the range of models on display.

Though the Prince was greeted with smiles and waves from the many Top Marques visitors present during his visit, there was one member of the crowd who seemed particularly pleased to meet Monaco’s car-loving sovereign: Aran La, a 10-year-old car design and art enthusiast from England.
