Jaguar celebrated a successful 2015 Mille Miglia by releasing this exclusive film documenting the classic motoring event.
Between May 14th and and 17th 2015, Jaguar entered nine cars, driven by household names from motorsport, TV and music, into the historic motoring event once described as ‘The most beautiful race in the world’.
Jaguar at the Mille Miglia 2015
2015 marks the anniversary of the Jaguar Marque and the official Jaguar Heritage team headed to the start in Brescia with three classic C-types, three iconic D-type racing cars, two XK120s and an XK140.
The nine Jaguar entries were driven by the likes of supermodel David Gandy, model and TV presenter Jodie Kidd, and musician Elliot Gleave – better known as Example – on the gruelling four-day event.
Jaguar Design Director, Ian Callum, who was driving an Ecurie Ecosse D-type said: “It’s a huge privilege to be part of that car’s history – because it’s made even more history now, being part of the Mille Miglia. This year’s drive was pure enjoyment for me, pure exhilaration. This event is amazing.”
The Mille Miglia
The 2015 event marks the thirty-third revival of the Mille Miglia. A re-enactment of the gruelling original speed race held between 1927 and 1957.
Although some times have undoubtedly changed, the event is now a ‘rally’ rather than a ‘race’. This long running event remains as popular as ever, with over 400 cars taking part.
