Bonhams will auction off a rare 1952 Jaguar C-Type at the Fairmont Monte Carlo during the Monaco Grand Prix Historique next May.


Electric Racing Heads to Europe With An Opening Salvo In Monte Carlo

Formula E heads to Europe for the first time with the Monaco ePrix, crowning not only the first multiple race winner but also marking the first driver to win from pole.


Police in Detroit are investigating why a man intentionally drove his Chevrolet Monte Carlo into the revolving doors of the Renaissance Center over the weekend. Witnesses say the man, dressed all in black, lined up his late-model coupe and planted his foot on the accelerator. The car crashed into the glass doors and both building security and police quickly responded to the scene.


Formula One is boring, say the detractors. It's always the same drivers and teams who win. Nothing new ever happens. That's what they said, at least, until this season.


Few marques get auto collectors riled up quite like Ferrari, and of classic Ferraris, few are as highly sought-after as the legendary Testa Rossa. We're talking, of course, about the 50s-era roadster (as opposed to the 80s-era cheesegrater supercar), and the originals continue to fetch top dollar (or euro) whenever and wherever their fortunate owners are willing to part with them.


If the idea of building a four-seat hard-top convertible supercar in Holland strikes you as off-the-wall, then its racing counterpart should blow your mind. We're talking about Savage Rivale, the markers of the Roadyacht GTS and the competition-spec GTR model it just unveiled at the Top Marques show in Monaco.


The Chevrolet Volt's European sibling took home a checkered flag that might as well have been green instead of black and white.


Think James Garner in "Grand Prix," only quieter.


Legends come and legends go when it comes to supercars, but few remain etched as indelibly in our hearts and minds as the McLaren F1. Still capable of trouncing 99% of the performance machinery being built today, the legendary F1 is one icon whose successor has been anticipated arguably more than any other.


There are any of a number of places you'd expect to find a Ferrari: at the race track, on the auction block, in the showroom, parked in front of the swankiest restaurants in town... To see one in the water usually spells trouble, but history is not without its exceptions.


Car accidents are never fun and often expensive. In certain parts of the world, accidents can be push expenses into the stratosphere, and Monte Carlo has reportedly just played host to such a fender bender. A woman was driving a Bentley Azure near the Monte Carlo Casino when she doubled-down on a nearby Mercedes-Benz S-Class. That scrape led to the Azure meeting a Ferrari 430, Aston Martin Rapide and Porsche 911.


Every racing series has its iconic race. F1 has Monaco. NASCAR has Daytona. Indy and Le Mans hardly need any elaboration. And rallying has Monte Carlo. The thing is, the Monte Carlo rally hasn't been part of the World Rally Championship for several years now. But that's about to change.
