A total of 114 Ferraris will embark on the upcoming 1000 Mille Miglia Tribute – including a brand new LaFerrari Aperta to mark the automaker’s 70th Anniversary.
The Mille Miglia, which is this year to be held from May 18th to the 21st, was at one point one of the most gruelling motorsports events the world had to offer. Covering 1,000 miles, the event would see competitors race eachother from Brescia to Rome and back, however it has not been held in a true competitive fashion since 1957.
Today, the 1000 Mille is a regularity race that is mostly for fun. Participants show up in both modern day and period correct cars and tour the Northern Italy route, stopping for special events such as parades and celebrations along the way. Ferrari will send 16 cars to participate in the event, however as participants join the route as the event goes on, the number of Prancing Horses on the route will grow to 116. The oldest Ferrari will be a 1965 275 GTS.
On the third day of the event, participants will stop by the Casa Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena for a parade as part of Ferrari’s special celebratory 70th anniversary year. On the final day, the participants will travel from Parma to Brescia where crowds will line the route to get a glimpse of the supercars and vintage exotics and sportscars.
