A stable of stunning Ferraris will travel to Monaco next month for the first live auction to be held as part of the Top Marques Monaco supercar show.
The Ferrari auction will take place in the verrière du Grimaldi Forum on Thursday 8 June – the opening day of the show for the public. The auction will be 100 percent dedicated to Ferrari and will feature a selection of the brand’s iconic models, the catalogue of which will be revealed shortly.
Organised by MonacoCarAuctions in partnership with Top Marques Monaco, this auction is a major new feature of the “world’s most exclusive motor show*”. The event will also showcase more than 150 vehicles, including the latest supercars, mythic classic cars, bespoke motorbikes and transport innovations, all of which will be offered for sale.
“After the success of the 17th edition, we wanted to offer you an even richer, more extraordinary edition, with more supercars, classic cars, technological innovations and “greens” vehicles than in 2022,” said Salim Zeghdar, CEO of Top Marques Monaco, at the press conference at the Casino de Monte-Carlo earlier today.
“My wish was also to organise an auction and I am very pleased to announce that an auction dedicated to Ferrari will take place during the show, on Thursday 8 June at 18:00. The vehicles will remain on display until the end of the Top Marques Monaco show for the pleasure of the visitors.”
Carspotters Awards amongst other novelties
The announcement of Top Marques Monaco’s first ever auction was just one of a number of new features revealed today.
Other innovations include the show’s first ever Carspotters Awards with a jury headed by Top Marques Monaco’s ambassador GMK, and a competition offering the chance to win a pair of ultra limited-edition trainers inspired by the renowned auto influencer.
There will also be Lego workshops for children, being run by Bricks 4 Kids on Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11.
