The Mille Miglia was first held in 1927 and was soon rated as the world’s greatest motor sport challenge. Up until 1957, the cars drove on public highways and narrow urban streets, and partly also along unsurfaced roads. The event was revived in a new format in 1977, and has since been staged as a 1,000-mile reliability and regularity trial. A total of 438 historic vehicles have registered for the 2015 Mille Miglia.

    I’m struck by how small most of those cars are—driver and passenger sitting literally shoulder to shoulder. Reminds me of the old MGAs and TDs. Perhaps it’s just in comparison to how large most vehicles in the U.S. have become.

    I was there and it was amazing! And did you know these BMW’s are also very well preserved on the bottom? :) my GoPro took this amazing shot of the BMW with start number 132! https://youtu.be/PT1skop4IzE
