Just 30 of these hand crafted racers are believed to have been made, each named in honour of Tazio Nuvolari's epic Mille Miglia drive at the wheel of a similar car, making them one of the most important, significant and successful automobiles built in the years immediately following World War II.Just 30 of these hand crafted racers are believed to have been made, each named in honour of Tazio Nuvolari's epic Mille Miglia drive at the wheel of a similar car, making them one of the most important, significant and successful automobiles built in the years immediately following World War II.Just 30 of these hand crafted racers are believed to have been made, each named in honour of Tazio Nuvolari's epic Mille Miglia drive at the wheel of a similar car, making them one of the most important, significant and successful automobiles built in the years immediately following World War II.Just 30 of these hand crafted racers are believed to have been made, each named in honour of Tazio Nuvolari's epic Mille Miglia drive at the wheel of a similar car, making them one of the most important, significant and successful automobiles built in the years immediately following World War II.Unlike most, this example has a continuous and documented history, starting in sunny Sicily with its appearance at the 1948 Catania-Etna hillclimb and continuing through a handful of Italian collectors until its acquisition via Kidston SA in 2008 by the present enthusiast, a well-known international designer. The level of period detail still present on the car when purchased was remarkable, and the new owner has ensured that performance is also to the same standard. The car therefore underwent a mechanical rebuild by the experienced firm GTO Engineering in the UK to include engine, gearbox (now fully synchronised) and back axle, fully respecting the original appearance! . The car has taken part in the Mille Miglia retrospective and is a joy to drive; its sleek and futuristic appearance also endearing it to concours judges. It is UK registered with a number chosen to mimic the original Italian licence plate, 'on the button' and accompanied by ASI homologation, FIVA pass, restoration invoices and an interesting history file.
The perfect mount for next year's Mille Miglia, and a car sought-after by the organisers. We should know!
