Monaco is the one place where a need for speed is promoted. Here is a list of cars that will create a stir wherever they go.
G63 AMG 6×6
The G-Wagon was an iconic car by itself, however Mercedes pushed the boundaries of engineering by creating the 6×6. This monstrous SUV is a 6-wheeled version of the G63 AMG that currently exists. It is the ultimate blend of off-road mobility with the amenities of a luxury sedan. It was originally developed for the Australian army but Mercedes Benz decided to create a civilian version of the car and hence the G63 AMG 6×6 was made.

The car is the definition of extreme, the 6×6 comes with a 5-differential lock set up to maximize off-road agility. It can approach hills at 52 degrees incline as well as wade in a meter deep of water. The power unit that is stationed under the hood is a 544 horsepower V-8 which is mated to a 7G-tronic 7-speed auto transmission.
Luxury has been carefully catered for in the 6×6, there is leather upholstery around the car as well as including driver amenities such as heated windscreens, parking aides, blind spot assist, tire pressure control system & Hill Start Assist.
The G63 AMG 6×6 is the ultimate car to make a statement with. No matter the size of the statement you want to make, Auto Europe can offer an elite fleet of designer luxury cars for rent.
Bentley has been the brand that emanates what discreet luxury is supposed to be about, it is for the individual that doesn’t want to be seen but wants to enjoy the utmost in luxury. The new Mulsanne accomplishes that very well. The front of the car has been designed to resemble the Bentley S-Type of the 1950’s however it has done so while looking modern and updated.

Supercars have their charm, however when it comes to the elitist fashion, the hypercar is what is demanded the most. The flamboyance, power, performance is what sets these cars apart from the rest. This ideal is exemplified by Pagani with their Zonda. The Zonda became the bedroom poster for car enthusiasts around the world with its out of the world styling and staggering performance.

Their ability to radiate performance, luxury and beauty has always been a unique trait to the brand.

Rolls Royce Ghost Mansory
Rolls Royce cars have always been special, they have been the go to car for the rich and famous. They are built with excellent precision and care and host the luxurious of a yacht in the shape of a car. The Ghost was introduced as a smaller more affordable Rolls Royce so to speak; however, it did not lack the comforts and features of the full on Phantom.
However, the fact that the popularity of the Ghost has increased, there has been an increase in the demand of customizing the car to become more unique than the standard vehicle Rolls Royce produces. This calls for companies such as Mansory that add subtle changes to the cars appearance and performance to allow for a more unique taste to the vehicle.
The Mansory Ghost is a brilliant example of how small changes to the car can really set it apart from the crowd. The black on white interior with the customized larger rims on the outside really make the Mansory Ghost a special car to drive. The Monaco Grand Prix crowd is a tough one to please but sitting behind the wheel of this car will definitely get one noticed.
