About Monaco

The history of the cigar-shaped car is rich in emotions. Made in honour to Sir Stirling Moss, one of the greatest drivers of English automobile history and winner of several Grand Prix including the Grand Prix of Monaco, it has been delivered in its “economic” way – in spare parts! The purchaser received a cardboard box and a chassis. The vehicle, sold fully assembled, has kept all of its old manufacturing standards. In total, only 47 pieces have been born: a factory fire in the 1980s has stopped all further production.
