ALFA ROMEO AND THE MILLE MIGLIA: A TIMELESS BOND BETWEEN PAST AND FUTURE

“The most beautiful race in the world”, as Enzo Ferrari famously said, makes its comeback.

The 2021 Mille Miglia takes place from June 16th to 19th June, starting and finishing in Brescia, after passing through some of the most beautiful and evocative Italian locations.

 

Alfa Romeo’s proud racing history is inextricably linked to this timeless and prestigious race. With an unbeaten record of 11 victories, it has become part of the racing worlds’ collective memory, cementing a unique bond with the race. So, it’s no surprise that the brand is the Global Automative Partner of the Mille Miglia.

 

Half race and half adventure the 39th Mille Miglia, features a rare collection of priceless vintage cars, including some classic Alfa Romeos. They belong to the Stellantis Heritage Department, whose mission it is to preserve and promote the rich sporting legacy of Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia and Abarth.

 

For the joy and admiration of racing enthusiasts everywhere, the only models that may take part in this classic race must have competed in the Mille Miglia between 1927 and 1957. Like the extraordinary Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 SS, a 1928 masterpiece on wheels, just one of the classic cars that will, once again be where it belongs, under starters orders in 2021.

 

A bridge between the past and the future, the concept behind the 2021 Mille Miglia is ‘Crossing the Future’. A name that celebrates the contribution of technological innovation in the automotive field whilst rising to the challenges it faces tomorrow.

 

Alfa Romeo has shared the same passion for innovation and improvement with Mille Miglia, refining and evolving over the last 111 years, but still remaining true to its spirit. Today the brand’s heritage moves a new generation of engineers and designers to create even better cars, like the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, inspired by the classic 1965 model. A new supercar that reimagines the technical prowess and sporting traditions of the Gran Turismo Alleggerita in contemporary form. In a touching move, it was revealed to the world press at the Balocco Providing Ground, where it all started in 1960.

 

And, of course, the Mille Miglia, is the perfect theatre for Alfa Romeo fans to discover more about the new Giulia GTA. Just one more reason that makes this unique event unmissable for all Alfa lovers.
