Oh my… *drool*
We stopped in Monaco last summer while on our honeymoon cruise. This brings me back! Thanks, Chive!
You notice how in all the other pictures the COP’s are looking at the cars, yet in #12 one is writing a ticket….for the Ford. Hmmmmm!! I wonder why?
That would be a hotel valet, not a cop.
Really? What is he doing, writing a ticket for the ford?
Is that a land rover? My guess would be that there aren’t many fords pulling up to that hotel.
I’m sure he’s writing a valet ticket for the car. Cops in Monaco don’t wear beige.
It’s true. I’ve been there. It’s even more ridiculous at night.
What, no ’87 Fiero??
I’m going to use my years of mechanical and automotive experience to point out that 26 totally looks like it’s whistling.
Parking ticket on #6
only in my dreams…
If you go, I’d definitely recommend stopping by Prince Ranier III’s car collection museum (yes, they stuck a bunch of his cars in a museum). Hard to say what the most badass thing there was, the Lamborghini Countach 500 was pretty righteous, but I couldn’t get over the fact that he owned two F1 racers.
So much luxus,fill my soul with an indescriptible desire to go there ,but being a normal midle class citizen,better stay in my home,and flight with my dreams and then I’m a participant in the way of life.
#3 Never liked the SLR much but the 722 is one sexy bitch.
#9 A one-off Rolls Royce Hyperion Drop Top. Didn’t even know someone had bought it. It’s designed by Pininfarina by the way.
#26 The last Bugatti made before the Veyron, the EB110
This collection is sorely lacking a Lambo LP550-2 and LP670-4 SV though. Not as expensive as a Veyron but so much cooler. The Koenigsegg CCX is probably my favorite here.
EB110 was a great car, my favorite of the group. But the interiors were sort of disappointing. Still, you’re not exactly buying those cars for the cupholders…
the eb110 was my dream car when i was a kid. nowadays i would get the koenigsegg, it looks super scary and youre not gonna see it on every corner.
As beautiful as they are, I would rather have the awful lot of money they cost
Couldn’t agree more with the title. The 3 days I was in Monaco I spent most the time in front of the Monte Carlo watching the cars go by. I think its a great way to spend every waking daylight hour.
