100 years after our beginning , Sixt will again be an exclusive rental partner of the world-renowned Italian vintage car rally “Mille Miglia”. We have once again selected car manufacturer BMW as our cooperation partner for the event. “Mille Miglia” traditionally follows an ancient route stretching over more than 1,600 kilometres from Brescia to Rome and back. This year, it will be held from 16 to 20 May 2012.
Sixt will lend a hand to the vintage car race for the fifth time this year, providing it with a comprehensive range of services. In celebration of the company’s 100th anniversary, Sixt will prepare a few special surprises for participants and spectators along the route. In addition, Sixt will provide race participants, passengers and the media with safe and comfortable transport to the route and back to their hotels in its up-to-date Sixt fleet. The firm’s service cars will also accompany race participants along the way. Meanwhile, Sixt’s hostesses are looking forward to greeting the race’s knowledgeable fans in Sixt guest tents located in Brescia and Rome.
Sixt will be part of the race itself once more with its vintage fleet. The firm’s six classic 1950s cars are set to add to the nostalgia-fest on offer. These include two Mercedes 300 featuring gull-wing doors, a Jaguar XK 120, a Porsche Speedster, a VW Standard and a Ferrari 250 GT Coupé. And Erich and Regine Sixt will be at the controls of the vintage Mercedes 300 gull-wing models.
Regine Sixt: ”We’re looking forward to once again taking part in this spectacular vintage car rally in this, our anniversary year. “Mille Miglia” has become an important part of the summer for us. We will spread the Sixt spirit along the entire route this year – in a really special way.”
