On this week’s episode of Epic Drives, Motor Trend editor-at-large Angus MacKenzie heads to Italy in the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster to speak with Sir Stirling Moss. While there, MacKenzie takes a look back at the iconic Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR race car and the legendary Mille Miglia.
The episode starts with a look back on the history of the Mille Miglia, including a look at some rare archival footage of the race. MacKenzie then hops into the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster to retrace some of the race’s roads, comparing it to the original 300 SLR. That’s when MacKenzie meets up with Stirling Moss, winner of the 1955 Mille Miglia, who treats MacKenzie to a drive of the route, before regaling us with tales of the race he won.
