Photos from the Top Marques supercar show in Monaco, where ‘high calibre visitors’ test drive the world ’ s finest cars – including custom Lamborghinis, Porsches and Alfa Romeos. Another Kodachrome moment from Top Marques Monaco. Maserati Ghibli. Ah, this is more like it.

You’ve heard of the Festival of the Unexceptional, well Top Marques Monaco is the very antithesis of that event. It’s billed as “Monaco’s third most popular event”, which showcases the world’s finest automobiles, watches and jewellery. Here are some images from this year’s extravaganza, which uses the famous Grand Prix circuit to allow “high caliber visitors” to take the ultimate test drive.

Watch the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Shoot White Flames

  Watch the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Shoot White Flames <p>This $130,000 Corvette spits hotter bars than Kendrick Lamar. Humble, the ZR1 is not.</p>Chevrolet released an unlisted video of a camouflaged ZR1 testing its new exhaust system last month on its Youtube channel, although the clip has only just gone viral this week. A byproduct of the lovely sound that LT5 makes at wide-open throttle is white-hot flames exploding out the back. Orange and blue fire-spitting cars are far from uncommon, but this car takes it to a new level. You don't need to have a degree in chemistry to know that white flames are the hottest, so the Corvette ZR1 is even more insane than we thought.

Ah, this is more like it. Arguably one of the finest grand tourers of all-time, the Giugiaro-designed Ghibli was the flagship of the Maserati range and a genuine rival to the Lamborghini Islero and Ferrari Daytona. In the UK, the press ad headline was simple and to the point: “Maserati Ghibli. 174mph.”

McLaren Is Incredibly Dismissive Of Electric Sports Cars

  McLaren Is Incredibly Dismissive Of Electric Sports Cars While Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Tesla, and even Chevrolet are rushing to build battery electric super car, The U.K.’s premier supercar manufacturer, McLaren, says they definitely will not, according to this report from Bloomberg.

You know you’re at Top Marques Monaco when there’s a bottle of Champagne Carbon left lying about. The magnums, which retail for around €3,000 (about $3600), are used at the end of each F1 race. Ideal for when you’ve just placed a deposit on a new Danish supercar in Monaco.

It was an insoluble mixture and it didn't take long for the traditionally-styled, owner-built (typically) hot rods, customs, trucks, and bikes to nudge out the modern imports.

German tuning company Pogea Racing has been doing naughty things with the Alfa Romeo 4C since 2013, and this is one of its latest creations: the Centurion 008. If Cadbury made Italian sports cars…

Here’s another view of Pogea Racing’s Centurion 008. The company started working on the project in October 2016, using a red Alfa 4C as the base. The paintwork was completed in January 2017, with Pogea using a super-matte finish based on a mother-of-pearl shade by Lamborghini. Pogea calls it Royal Mystique.

“The new Eadon Green Zeclat exudes an easy calm and evokes comparison with cars of the past that now look more at home in automotive museums than they do on the roads of today.” That’s according to the British company behind the car based on the platform of a Chevrolet Corvette. It’s like an Art Deco Morgan with a 6.2-liter V8 ‘Vette engine.

Sticking with a purple theme, this is the €2.3 million Apollo IE hypercar, complete with 780hp naturally aspirated 6.3-litre V12 engine and a top speed of 208mph. Amazingly, the entire chassis, including the monoque and the front and rear subframes, has a total weight of just 105kg. Only 10 will be built. The name, in case you were wondering, stands for Intensa Emozione.

Corbellati Missile

It’s not purple, but Corbellati claims that it will be very, very quick. Like, really quick. “The fastest hypercar in the world is coming,” proclaims the jewellery company behind the Missile, which is powered by a 9.0-liter V8 twin-turbocharged engine producing 1,800hp. It’ll hit 500km/h, says Corbellati, which is about 310mph. Hmm.

Chevy Black Knight

If Alandi Performance is anything to go by, the car modification scene in Moldova is far from subtle. “Alandi’s first credo is to make something than it is from the factory,” says the company. Beneath the Chevy Black Knight – with its “Robocop-style” grille – you’ll find a Camaro SS. Better than the factory original?

It's not exactly a competition, but there's always a fastest car, and this year the winner was a Koenigsegg Agera RS (no surprise there) with a staggering 242.43 mph blast up the runway.

“Corvette is dangerous, cheeky and salient due to its defiant ‘face’ with a sarcastic look of the headlights.” Even allowing for the translation from Moldovan, that’s a sentence you’re unlikely to read in a brochure for a new compact crossover.

If you arrived at Top Marques hoping to get a test drive in a new Hyundai i10, you would have been disappointed. On the other hand, if you were in search of hypercars with circa 2,000hp and a 0-60mph time of 2.8 seconds, your luck would have been in. Newmarket-based Arash Motor Company will sell you an AF10 Hybrid Racer for £1,200,000 (about $1.44 million).

Audi Teases PB 18 e-tron Concept Ahead of Pebble Beach Debut .
Hopefully, the car will be more exciting than the nameBut while the name isn't particularly exciting, the car itself should be interesting. Audi says the design was inspired by the R18 e-tron Le Mans race car. Plus, it's an electric supercar, so it's probably safe to assume the PB 18's spec sheet will be impressive. Unfortunately, we don't have much information beyond that, and the teaser image does a good job of hiding most of the car.
