Colour Style The Mille Miglia from 1927 -1957


Daniele Buzzonetti


Cars, Heroes, Curiosities

What exactly did the 24 cars look like in each edition of  the Mille Miglia between 1927 and 1957? What exactly were the colors and details of the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS of Nuvolari-Guidotti (1930) or of the Lancia D24 of Ascari, winner in 1954? A question that is repeated for all the victorious cars in the Mille Miglia, because in their time the color photographs did not exist or were in any case rare, and often the last editions of the race are the ones seen.

This book offers an overview of the 24 victorious cars, interpreted through accurate drawings, which faithfully reproduce the colors and every tiny original detail. The large tables (with side views) are combined with period images that allow you to relive the events of the various editions of the race in a continuous rediscovery.

The volume is accompanied by comments on all editions as well as technical notes (including classifications) and the reproduction of numerous printed and period documents. A work capable of stimulating the imagination of all fans of the “Greatest Race of the World”.
