Ferrari parked outside Monte Carlo Casino

Supercar overload in Monte Carlo, Monaco

For those of you who don't like cars or hearing someone jabber on aimlessly about them then why not read one of my other quality articles ;) If you appreciate artistic photography then you may at least enjoy the images!

When I told my friends and colleagues I was stopping off at Monaco after my recent cruise around the Mediterranean, most of them said "wow, living the high life, think of all the posh cars you'll see".....They were bloody right! I didn't know what to expect from Monte Carlo but I was not disappointed and the amount of high end cars and super cars nonchalantly cruising the streets was ridiculous!

I love driving.... I love driving fast..... I love overtaking people and racing (All within the confines of the law obviously and with the upmost consideration for other peoples safety) - Yes this isn't great for my petrol consumption but I can't help it! So the beautiful cars I saw at Monaco were an absolute treat! Surprisingly enough I'm not an F1 fan so walking around the F1 track did not have the same effect on me as it did my friend Simon. However, when we got to Monte Carlo casino.... oh my life!!!!

To the left a Porsche 911, to the right a Ferrari GTO 599, back to the left a McLaren c12 Spyder, to the middle a Bentley Continental and an Audi R8... another Ferrari, another Porsche..... I simply couldn't take it all in, in all my years living in England I have only seen 1 of the above cars up close!! This typified how the other half really do live - taking a midday jaunt in their insanely expensive super-cars to frivolously waste several thousand at the Casino! I could have easily spent all day car watching - there were so many superb examples of automotive beauty to ogle and take photos of - unfortunately we only had a day and wanted to see all of Monaco.

The best moments were when a Bugatti Veyron and later a purple Lamborghini Diablo SE30 pulled up outside the Casino - simply stunning cars! The Veyron was the Grand Sport Vitesse model retailing at around 2 million Euros :O with a 0-62 of 2.6 seconds!!!! I couldn't actually believe I was seeing one. The Diablo was in a vivid purple - the engine sounded amazing and the style, lines and shape of the car were beautiful. I also marvelled at seeing a Ferrari GTO, McLaren c12 Spyder and a Porsche 911 all driving down in a line past the harbour. If you love cars and appreciate these pieces of art I would advise going to Monaco just to experience them up close!
