The Cars Collection of H.S.H. the Prince of Monaco

 

At the end of the 1950s, the car enthusiast Prince Rainier III began collecting old cars. His collection gradually grew over the years as he acquired more and more models, and the garage at the Prince's Palace soon emerged as too small to contain this collection of around a hundred stunning streamlined and sporty cars, from majestic body work to gleaming hoods and regal radiator grills!

In 1993, Prince Rainier III therefore decided to open his precious collection to the public.

Located on the Terrasses de Fontvieille, the exhibition spans 5 000 m2 and is unique in the world, bringing together around a hundred-odd different cars, from a 1903 DE DION BOUTON to the 2013 LOTUS F1 via HISPANO SUIZA, ROLLS ROYCE, LINCOLN, FACEL VEGA, DELAGE, DELAHAYE, PACKARD, HUMBER, NAPIER, FERRARI, MASERATI, LAMBORGHINI, ALFA ROMEO, the LEXUS used for the royal wedding in 2011, and without forgetting the racing cars seen at the Monte Carlo Rally and the Formula 1s from the Monaco Grand Prix.

The Car Collection of H.S.H. the Prince of Monaco will host a unique exhibition of Ferrari vehicles from 3 December 2018 to 15 March 2019.

Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1947, in Maranello in Italy, the cars with the prancing horse have left their mark on automobile history on road and circuit. Manufacturer of race and sports cars, Ferrari quickly became an automobile benchmark, both technically and aesthetically.

At this exhibition, unique, around 50 of competition and sport cars, the most iconic of the brand, which built the Ferrari legend and which millions of fans dream about, will be brought together in the Principality for four months.
