Fabrizio Giugiaro and GFG Kangaroo at 2024 Mille Miglia Green

It starts today and ends on Saturday, June 15, the new edition of the 1000 Miglia, the most famous vintage car race in the world that, in addition to celebrating the history of motoring, always looks to the future. A mission confirmed thanks to the presence of Fabrizio Giugiaro, who has directed his career in car design to constant research and innovation not only in shapes and aesthetics but also in alternative power supplies, among which electric stands out.

A binomial, that between Mille Miglia and Fabrizio Giugiaro, which has had its consecration in the Mille Miglia Green: a parallel event that focuses on the theme of sustainable mobility with particular attention to the implications it determines on the Italian automotive, energy and infrastructure supply chain.

After participating in 2020, an edition that saw for the first time an alternative-fueled car, the GFG Vision 2030 Hyper SUV, tracing the route of the historic Red Arrow race in a privileged position at the opening of the race, Fabrizio Giugiaro returns this year with the GFG Kangaroo.

The Kangaroo, an innovative meeting point between a crossover and a coupe presented by GFG Style - the advanced styling center led by Fabrizio and Giorgetto Giugiaro - at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2019, will thus be able to prove its remarkable performance: with two 245-horsepower electric motors powered by 90-kWh batteries, it reaches 250 km/h and has a range of more than 450 km.

The 2024 edition of the 1000 Miglia Green will, as usual, retrace the route of the traditional race: from June 11 to 15, the event reserved for full-electric cars will cover a total of about 1,800 kilometers, 1,000 of which will make up the race course. Drivers will be measured by 15 time controls, 83 chronometric tests, 2 media tests and 18 stamp controls.

Behind the wheel of the Kangaroo, with race number 701 - the first among the electric cars - will be Fabrizio Giugiaro himself, who has always combined his work as a designer with his passion for sports driving, personally testing many of the models he has designed in his more than 30-year career, flanked by Alessio Frassinetti, a motoring expert and contributor to the famous Quattroruote magazine.
