Millie Miglia, Coachwork Touring: Earlier Europe’s toughest race was considered 100-mile Mille Miglia race. Many BMWs were made only to win that race. It was powered by a 135 horse power engine. As the body was aluminum based, it was superfast. In fact, the theory of aerodynamics was applied on that model. It was supposed to race in 1941, but due to World War II finally it was cancelled.
