James Bond will return to Monaco for the first time in 21 years 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 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 inSpectre 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 will also exhibit the Arrow by Apollo; with close to 1,000hp this hypercar built in Germany is financed by Chinese investors. The Donkervoort D8 GTO, one of the fastest street legal cars which exists today, will also be exhibited and may be test driven on parts of the famous GP track.

Top Marques co-owner Steven Saltzman said today: "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."
