If you want to experience Italy’s passion for fast, elegant cars, there is no more thrilling place than the Mille Miglia. With hundreds of thousands of spectators cheering drivers on, the long-distance race from Brescia to Rome and back was held from 1927 to 1957. Racers like Tazio Nuvolri, Rudolf Caracciola, and Stirling Moss–along with the Mille Miglia itself–became legends. The Mille Miglia was revived in 1977 and once again cheering fans line the roads. This exclusive book shows the spectacular 2014 race, which was photographed by Rene Staud and his team, and offers insights into the exciting history of this renowned competition. The result is an enthralling documentation of this unique event and its fascinating cars, picturesque landscapes, and celebrity drivers like Jay Leno and Adrien Brody.
