The same passion 70 years on. BMW at the 2010 Mille Miglia.

70 years ago, the BMW motor racing department had a single aim in mind: the 1st Gran Premio Brescia delle Mille Miglia. A total of five racing cars from Munich had registered for the big event. Preparations did not run entirely smoothly, and ultimately the BMW team very nearly ran out of time. But when the silver BMW racers crossed the finish line in Brescia on 28th April, they accomplished what few had dared hope for: overall victory, team victory and third, fifth and sixth places.

Munich/Brescia. 70 years ago, the BMW motor racing department had a single aim in mind: the 1st Gran Premio Brescia delle Mille Miglia. A total of five racing cars from Munich had registered for the big event. Preparations did not run entirely smoothly, and ultimately the BMW team very nearly ran out of time. But when the silver BMW racers crossed the finish line in Brescia on 28th April, they accomplished what few had dared hope for: overall victory, team victory and third, fifth and sixth places. That April day saw BMW celebrate its greatest racing triumph so far on four wheels. To this day it epitomises the essence of the brand: “Victory in the 1940 Mille Miglia remains a landmark in the history of the BMW brand. It reflects not only the extraordinary technical expertise but also the passion with which BMW approaches its work,” comments Dr Klaus Draeger, member of the BMW Group Board of Management responsible for development, on the significance of the 1940 Mille Miglia. To mark the anniversary of that historic event, BMW Classic has come up with something very special: it has recreated a model that had disappeared from sight for almost 60 years – the BMW 328 Kamm Coupé. This racing car represents a harmonious synthesis of function and aesthetics while at the same time demonstrating just how far BMW had advanced in the development of aerodynamics and lightweight design. “We are very proud to be lining up for the Mille Miglia again 70 years later with this milestone of motor racing history and vehicle aerodynamics,” says Karl Baumer, Director of BMW Classic, in delighted anticipation of the unique ride from Brescia to Rome and back

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
