Jaguar Heritage Racing Cars To Run 2013 Mille Miglia

Follow Nelson

With the 2014 Jaguar F-Type having recently drawn the automotive world's eyes back to the company's sports car past, the brand is capitalizing on that attention as it plans to run a trio of C-Types and an XK120 in the 2013 Mille Miglia.

The Mille Miglia is no longer the no-holds-barred, flat-out open road race it once was, but the classic car tour is still a spectacle of racing history.

Legendary Formula 1 driver Juan Manuel Fangio's own C-Type will even be on hand, as will a handful of famous athletes and racers, including Le Mans winner Andy Wallace and Jaguar Heritage Racing's Alex Buncombe.

Tying the C-Type and XK120 back into its current products, Jaguar will also have five F-Types following along the route as support and exhibition cars.

"Jaguar's 1952 entry into the Mille Miglia was hugely significant in the evolution of Jaguar products. Seductive design, intelligent performance and technological innovation were features of all Jaguar sports cars in the 1950s and 60s and they are prevalent in the incredible new F-TYPE," said Jaguar's regional director for Europe Bernard Kuhnt.

A preview of Jaguar's entry into this year's 2013 Mille Miglia can be seen in the video above. The tour runs May 16-19.
