To properly celebrate the 70th anniversary of its unlikely victory back in 1940 at the Mille Miglia automobile race in Brescia, BMW has announced that it will build a new version of the Z4 sDrive35is fittingly called the Mille Miglia Limited Edition.
Each of the 99 Mille Miglia Limited Edition models will be painted matte Polaris Metallic and will feature a blacked-out front grill along with an M aero kit and 19-inch wheels finished in Dark Chrome. Driver and passenger seats will get a dash of red stitching, as will the steering wheel. Finishing it all off will be a unique set of badges both inside and out.
BMW's standard 340-horsepower turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six will provide power, and a a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox will send those healthy ponies to the rear wheels
BMW has also announced that it has recreated a classic 328 Kamm Coupé that will be taking part in this year's Mille Miglia race. Read more about BMW's historic racing efforts after the break.
