The Details

Stefan has always been intrigued by those advertisements for cars that note their “Mille Miglia Eligibility.” As the Millie Miglia (MM) was run between 1927 and ’57, the requirement for the modern recreation is that the car be an actual historic participant, or of the same type, with an absolute cut-off date of 1957. After Stefan laid eyes on a wonderfully restored 1953 Alfa Romeo 1900 C Sprint Coupé, bodied by Pininfarina, painted in a lovely “Celeste Bettula”, Alfa Romeo’s stunning light blue color code, and available at auction in Paris, he was struck by, as they say in French, a “coup de Coeur,” which means that it was love at first sight; he had to have the car. Stefan drove his 1953 Alfa Romeo in the 2023 reenactment of the Mille Miglia. Join us at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum as he relives his memorable experience.
