Alfa Romeo to Race at Mille Miglia 2010

Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, announced it will be a part of the Mille Miglia 2010 parade as Joint Presenting Sponsor. There will be 375 cars competing in the 1600km long race that kicks-off on May 6 in Brescia. All cars took part in one of the 30 editions of the historical Mille Miglia races from 1927 to 1957.

The Official “Automobilismo Storico Alfa Romeo” team has made five museum cars available: a 6C 1500 Super Sport (1928), a 6C 1750 Gran Sport (1930), an 8C 2300 Le Mans (1931), a 6C 2300 B (1937) and a 1900 Super Sprint (1956). Three cars from private collectors will also be part of the official team: a 6C 1750 Gran Sport (1932), a 6C 2500 Cabriolet (1951) and a Giulietta Sprint (1955).

Another highlight of the event coming from Alfa Romeo is the brand’s new Giulietta, which will be part of a fleet that includes 18 Giuliettas, and 7 other Alfas, namely 159s and MiTos. Last but not least, 5 Alfa Romeo Giuliettas (equipped with powerful 1.4 TB MultiAir and 2.0 JTDM engines, both delivering 170 hp) will be driven by foreign journalists along the entire route of the Mille Miglia 2010.

The oldest model in Alfa Romeo’s lineup will be the 6C 1500 Super Sport, winner of 11 Mille Miglia races from 1928 to 1947. This car also won three editions of the Mille Miglia revival parade (in 2005, 2007 and 2008).

Other famous cars featured at the upcoming event are a 1930 6C 1750 Gran Sport, a 1931 8C 2300 Le Mans, a 6C 2300 B and a 1956 1900 Super Sprint.
