The 2016 running of the famed Mille Miglia rally took place 19-22 May in Italy starting in Brescia. The Mille Miglia has been held as a regularity and reliability trial for historic cars since 1977. Only models that took part in the 1,000-mile event between 1927 and 1957 are eligible to compete, with original racers from that era enjoying an especially exclusive status. Owing to its unique concentration of outstanding historical vehicles, Enzo Ferrari once called the Mille Miglia “the most beautiful traveling museum in the world”.
Given the strong field of 440 historic cars at the 2016 Mille Miglia, we ended up with not enough time to post all of the images provided by Julien Mahiels in our original story. Therefore, in addition to Julien’s initial Photo Gallery, we offer the following selection of images that are simply too good to not share. We split up Julien’s pictures into two galleries. The first gallery starting below features our favorite images, while the second gallery can be found on the last page of the article and gives a comprehensive view of all the photographs.
