BMW Classic at the 2010 Mille Miglia

Seventy years ago, the silver BMW racers crossed the finish line in Brescia clinching the first Gran Premio Brescia delle Mille Miglia. On April 28, 1940, the BMW team had it all: overall victory, team victory and third, fifth and sixth places. This year, the Mille Miglia will again have a lineup of BMW 328 cars racing for the title.

To mark the anniversary of that historic event, BMW Classic has also recreated a model that had disappeared from sight for almost 60 years – the BMW 328 Kamm Coupé.

“Victory in the 1940 Mille Miglia remains a landmark in the history of the BMW brand. It reflects not only the extraordinary technical expertise but also the passion with which BMW approaches its work,” said Klaus Draeger, member of the BMW Group Board of Management responsible for development, on the significance of the 1940 Mille Miglia.

“We are very proud to be lining up for the Mille Miglia again 70 years later with this milestone of motor racing history and vehicle aerodynamics,”
Karl Baumer, Director of BMW Classic, said in a release.
