Here another video from my special week-end spent in Monaco during the last Top Marques. Monaco is for sure the Carspotting Heaven, because you can see over one hundred exotic supercars and hypercars in an ordinary day and certainly in the Top Marques days, having the opportunity to see the exlusive cars engaged in the Test Drives without losing the chance to visit this wonderful city located on the beautiful French Riviera.
In this video a stunning wingless Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series with monegasque licence plate takes part at the event giving me the possibility to film it in each detail like rims, engine, interior, the logo and to record its noisy start-up and its lovely sound while driving.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a german supercar produced since 2010 by the Three-pointed star of Stuttgart to compete against the italian rivals Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano (and F12 Berlinetta later) and Lamborghini Murcielago LP640-4 (and Aventador since 2012).
