Brescia [ENA] after having participated in at least one of the twenty-four speed editions held from 1927 to 1957. Among these cars, the most glorious ones are three Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 with Zagato bodywork, identical to those that triumphed in 1929 with Giuseppe Campari and in 1930 with Tazio Nuvolari.

From the same car manufacturer, the 8C 2900 with a “Botticella” body shop will attend the competition: in 1936 the same car took part in the 1000 Miglia on behalf of Scuderia Ferrari, finishing third overall with Carlo Pintacuda. Among the eighteen cars built in Maranello that will be lined up at the start, those with the most important palmarès are the Ferrari 340 America Spider Vignale, which was driven by Pietro Taruffi at the 1000 Miglia in 1952, and the 275/340 America Scaglietti; the abbreviation indicates that the car was born as a 275 in 1950, the year in which it raced its first 1000 Miglia, and was then transformed by the House of the Prancing Horse into 340 America, a configuration with which it participated in the Freccia Rossa

also in 1951 and 1952. Finally, a mandatory mention for other examples of extraordinary historical value and a significant sporting past that will attend the 1000 Miglia 2021: two Bugatti Type 35 and five Bugatti Type 37; three “official” racing Maseratis from the Trident House; eleven Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, the famous "Seagull Wings", including a prototype version that was used in 1952 by the official team of Stuttgart to train along the race track. Lastly there will be seven OM 665 “Superba”, a nickname earned thanks to numerous victories earned during the 1927 edition. (1000 Press Release)
