Cars such as the legendary Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing make a triumphant return to the Mille Miglia.
Mercedes-Benz has a special history with the Mille Miglia. Racing legend Sir Stirling Moss won the epic Italian race in 1955 while piloting his Mercedes 300 SLR and set a record time of 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds. And that was without any sort of GPS navigation or any other high-tech toys. It was just a man, his co-driver and his car. And now the German automaker is back in Italy at the Mille Miglia with a sizeable fleet of some of its most classic sports car in tow.
Running these old cars is no simple task and it takes a team of 25 experienced technicians to keep them on the road day and night. It couldn’t have been easy, but we have no doubt that it was fully worth the effort.
