Giannini 750 Sport 1948 What a wonderful sportscar to welcome back into my stock ! This Giannini 750 Sport with starting number 233 broke the speed record in its category during the 1949 Mille Miglia covering the 1.593 Km in 16h 55min which resulted in an average speed of 94 Km/h in a race from Brescia to Rome and back to Brescia over the Apenine mountains in 1949, a time when there were no motorways ! This exceptional performance (1-st in class) by the Maggiorelli brothers was commented in all the newspapers and was even rewarded with a congratulations telegram from the Fiat factory in Torino. The intrepid Maggiorelli brothers did not stop there and continued to compete with this very light and very agile sportscar. The big documentation file brings back memories from their participation: in 1949 at: - Mille Miglia #233 - Coppa Adriatico - Coppa della Toscana #1133 - Coppa della Collina Pistoiese in 1950 at: - Mille Miglia #237 in 1951 at: - Giro dell Umbria - Bologna Raticosa in 1952 at: - Coppa della Toscana All these races are very well documented because this Giannini 750 Sport stayed all her life into the family: A one family owned historic sportscar ! I could buy this Giannini in 2012 from Giovanni Maggiorelli, the son of Maggiorello Magggiorelli. Easy to understand that the Maggiorelli family treasured this sportscar, which even had in the family home in Tuscany her own room, with bed, comfortable seats, bookcase and decorative historic photos on the walls ! The least one can say is that Mr. Giovanni Maggiorelli made sure his fathers sportscar was properly taken care of. Mr. Giovanni Maggiorelli participated himself a couple of times at the Mille Miglia revival events in his fathers Giannini. To make sure the valuable Giannini G1 engine would last, he ordered a very similar, slightly tuned Fiat 600 replacement engine and mounted the Giannini G1 engine on a nice little troley. We got the chance to experience the sensations of the Mille Miglia in this Giannini by entering her in the 2013 Mille Miglia. My friend Marc with his friend co-pilot Stefaan drove the Mille Miglia without missing a beat! They both arrived back in Brescia with a very big smile on their faces ! Would you like to experience the Mille Miglia? In 2014 (the Giannini is ready to go!) or a later event?
