James Bond SPECTRE Top Marques
James Bond will return to Monaco for the first time in 21 years (having been featured as location in the 1995 film GoldenEye (1995)) with a thrilling display of supercars from the latest 007 film to star at Top Marques.

In this extraordinary homage to James Bond, visitors to the 13th edition of Monaco’s premier auto show will be able to see James Bond’s Aston Martin DB10; boasting a 4.7-litre V8 engine and a six-speed manual gearbox. Daniel Craig drove this incredible machine in a spectacular high-speed car chase in the film. Supercar fans will also see the Jaguar C-X75 which Spectre’s villain Hinx (played by Dave Bautista) drove in a chase with Bond through the streets of Rome. Created by Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations division, the C-X75 produces 850bhp with a top speed of 200mph.

The Range Rover Sport SVR, Land Rover "Big foot "Defender and Aston Martin DB5 which also featured in Spectre are available to view, as well as other 007 memorabilia brought to Top Marques by the PropShop, the company who produces gadgets for the Bond films.

Another highlight of this year's Top Marques, the only live auto show in the world where visitors get to test drive the supercars on a F1 GP circuit and being held from 14th to 17th April in the Grimaldi Forum, is the Icona Vulcano. Made entirely out of titanium, the hypercar will be shown in final form for the first time ever at the Monaco show.

Top Marques co-owner Steven Saltzman (son of legendary James Bond film producer Harry Saltzman) says: “We thank EON Productions and the producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for allowing us to feature the 007 Spectre supercars at Top Marques 2016."

And added: “This is the best ever Top Marques. However, it would not be possible without the continuing support of our patron, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II, who happens to be a huge James Bond fan. We are also very grateful to our title partner the Edmond de Rothschild group who is returning for the fourth year and shares in our passion for innovation and excellence.”
