All eyes were on Macau today as the curtains raised on the highly anticipated debut of the Asian edition of Top Marques, the only live supercar show in the world.
Macau has established itself as the world’s gaming capital over the past decade, and Top Marques Macau will certainly give those gamblers plenty to think about.
Top Marques Monaco has been staged in April for the past eight years at that city’s Grimaldi Forum and has been labeled “The World’s Most Exclusive Auto Show” by The New York Times, and “The Greatest Show on Earth” by the Financial Times.
Ferrari plans to create one of the world’s most exclusive collector car clubs, according to reports.
The brand is looking to create a new group of its most elite customers who will be offered the best opportunities to get their hands on limited-edition models.
Ferrari plans to open it only to people who possess at least five of the eye-wateringly expensive Italian supercars. That amounts to around 300 people around the world.

China looks set to claim another crown in the battle for supremacy in the luxury markets of the world as the country’s interest in supercars continues to grow.
China knocked the United States off its perch as the world’s leading car market two years ago – sales there now surpass 18.26 million units per year.
It seems that tastes in the country are turning now to the very high-end of the auto market, an area long dominated by the Americans.

Hyphen Design was drafted in by Fitch London to help them design and realise mobile customer configurator kits for the new McLaren MP4-12C supercar.
Hyphen have, so far, supplied Mclaren with 50 of the cases, which contain all the paint, material and trim options for Mclaren’s much anticipated new car.
The cases are designed to be taken outside the dealers for visiting customers in their homes, and give the customers a chance to choose paint colour, fabric choices, upholstery stitching colour, wheel colour and brake calliper colour.

A Korean firm is to debut a new electric super car later this year, promising performance which will exceed that of the current market leader Tesla.
Leo Motors, a little known manufacturer based in Korea, said this week that its LZ-1 supercar is being readied for a debut in 2011, having been perfected during the five-year development process.
Built from carbon fibre and aluminium alloy, it promises impressive performance — speeds of up to 161 miles per hour (259 km/h) and a 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) speed of 2.9 seconds, making it one of the fastest EVs — and indeed cars — on the planet.
Lamborghini announced this week that it is considering adding an “everyday” car to its portfolio, raising figurative eyebrows across the internet.
For a brand long associated with the most expensive things in life, Lamborghini’s announcement at a Reuters summit seemed a little out of character.
But, argued Lamborghini boss Stephen Winkelmann, the brand wants to have something that can be used on a daily basis.
It will be the third model line from Lamborghini, which currently offers the €145,000 Gallardo and €225,000 Aventador.
