The Most Beautiful Race in the world goes Green!

Brescia, 2019 Edition of the 1000 Miglia Green, the first regularity race for electric and hybrid vehicles organized by 1000 Miglia S.r.l., conceived to highlight the original vocation of the 1000 Miglia to promote innovation and progress concerning mobility.
