The icon of the Chopard Maison, the Mille Miglia GTS collection (Grand Turismo Sport) writes a new chapter in its history with the creation of the Mille Miglia GTS Power Control Limited Edition Latin America and Caribbean, a piece that exalts the passion for classic cars and the exceptional timekeepers.
The Mille Miglia GTS Power Control Limited Edition Latin America and Caribbean is presented to celebrate, with the fans of classic motorsports and Latin American collectors, the three decades of Chopard as official timekeeper and main sponsor of the Mille Miglia.
The unprecedented design takes up the emblematic lines of the Mille Miglia GTS range, inspired by the cars that participated from 1941 to 1957 in the most important sporting event of the Italian calendar, and the movement with power reserve, produced in the workshops of Fleurier Ebauches. For a piece that exalts the passion for classic motorsports in Latin America, where “la corsa più bella del mondo” has many followers.
