A thousand miles across Italy.
Mercedes-Benz and the Mille Miglia.
Remembering the great moments in motorsports.
Mercedes-Benz and the Mille Miglia have a long history together. Held for the first time in 1927, this most famous racing event for historic vehicles will mark its 30th anniversary in 2012. Sixty years ago, the 300 SL racing car made its debut in the 1000-mile race across Italy.
Icons like Rudolf Caracciola and Stirling Moss raced to sensational victories for Mercedes-Benz. This year Mercedes-Benz Classic will commemorate these great moments by entering an original 300 SL and 14 other exclusive vintage cars.
