Driving a luxury supercar down the voie rapide in France’s Riviera is as natural as the shine of the sun and the gentle lap of the waves. The Côte d’Azur boasts breathtaking scenery and a cultural calendar that necessitates arriving in style. Luxury car hire offers the opportunity to enjoy a memorable journey to a glamorous destination: rent a luxury supercar to enjoy the finest the French Riviera has to offer. We’ve selected five of the most prestigious events in the South of France and suggested a supercar that will transport you there with flair.
1. Monaco Grand Prix 2016 – 13th – 29th May
The world’s greatest drivers tackle one of racing’s most challenging circuits in this Formula 1 spectacular, held on the meandering streets of the regal Principality. From your seat in the VIP Terrace, you’ll see the pre-race grid, the start of the race, the exhilarating blur of thunderous formula one cars and the podium ceremony. The evenings are equally as exciting; you’ll want to spend them celebrating at a superyacht party or at a nearby villa. And what better car to arrive in than a V12-powered Ferrari F12 Berlinetta? The luxury car will forge a favourable impression with all attendees.
2. Cannes Film Festival 2016 – 11th – 22nd May
Top stars and fine cars are a suitable match, and both will be plentiful at the Cannes Film Festival 2016. The Cannes Film Festival is renowned for lavish parties, high fashions and the latest releases in the film industry, including those competing for the prestigious Palme d’Or award.
