The 2021 edition of the Mille Miglia rally will see more than 400 classic and vintage cars travel from the northern Italian city of Brescia to Rome and back again this week. One of the world’s oldest car rallies, the Mille Miglia began in 1927, taking place 24 times until 1957 and bringing international fame to luxury sports cars such as Alfa Romeo...

After taking a year off due to the pandemic, the Concorso Ferrari & Friends event returns to the Farmington Polo Grounds on Sunday, June 20. The event which is a fundraiser for the Connecticut Children's Medical Center Foundation has been around since 2001. Considered one of the premiere automotive events in Southern New England, will feature the w...

Franco-Italian-American powerhouse Stellantis will try to revive Italy’s Lancia, one of the most shamefully neglected automotive brands in the world, by parachuting in its own chief design officer. The maker of some of the world’s most legendary cars, Lancia drifted beyond mediocrity and into palliative care under the stewardship of Fiat Chrysler A...

By not fixing what ain't broke, Dodge is raking in the cash with its Charger and Challenger muscle cars, and Durango SUV. But even that strategy has a limit. Dodge is overdue for new blood in its lineup, and rumor suggests it could get some from Italy in the form of an Alfa Romeo Tonale-based crossover called the Hornet. Revealed as a concept in 20...

This weekend, car racing fans will have a chance to see the "Superstar Racing Experience," a new event debuting on CBS that aims to rival NASCAR. Some of the sport's top drivers will compete head-to-head behind the wheel. And as CBS News correspondent Chris Livesay reports, the steering wheel itself has an unlikely connection to the Catholic Church...

Probably one of the best Ferraris designed by Pininfarina was the very first collaborative project - the 1951 Ferrari 212 Inter. With production only kicking off in 1952, the Inter was the first car to leave Modena’s assembly line sporting the Pininfarina moniker on its flanks. Often referred to as the first ‘production’ Ferrari, the 212 was nevert...

Even though some of us may not want to admit it, we love Italian cars. Despite their bad track record for reliability and inferiority compared to some of their other European contemporaries, Italian cars have verve and a personality that other automakers simply can't match. We tend to look past their flaws and appreciate them for what they are, alt...

The Italian powerhouse is not in the habit of making this or that model for long, or in vast quantities. Take the Mondial, for instance. Introduced back in the early 1980s, it was around for a little more than a decade until something better came along. As with any Ferrari, the Mondial was made in small numbers, a little over 4,000, in four variant...

Italy and sports cars go together like wine and cheese, or any other combination of two things that pair well with each other. But until recently, the thought of an Italian manufacturer that only makes electric sports cars sounded sacrilegious. If we've learned nothing else in the last year, it's that absolutely anything is possible, even if it sou...

Do you believe that the fastest, most competitive auto racing in history takes place today? If you do, consider that Lewis Hamilton doesn't have to win a brutal thousand-mile race on twisty public roads to be taken seriously. That's what drivers of yesteryear had to contend with in the Italian Mille Miglia race. A race that was so dangerous and at...
