This achingly gorgeous Ferrari was named after the race of all races
Following a brazen declaration that he would win or ‘die in the attempt’, racing driver Giovanni Bracco proved triumphant in the 1952 Mille Miglia and, as a result, Ferrari named the victorious 250 model he was driving after the gruelling Italian endurance race. This fabulous grey example currently listed for sale in the Classic Driver Market was campaigned extensively in the period, yet is presented in remarkably original condition. The car, as the listing so emotively puts it, ‘oozes the history of thousands of high-speed kilometres’ – we’d certainly like to add a thousand more on the modern iteration of the race after which it was christened.
