That's more something I'd call revolutionary, not legendary.

the question is too overall for me, you can say the victory was legendary because of the car - mercedes SLR with red 722, it was the record time of the mille miglia that wasn't broken up to this day, maybe that stirling moss won that race and didn't won F1 championship (not sure if you'd call that legendary anyway) and it was the first victory of the silver arrow team

Let me rephraze then. Why is it remembered so well to this day? And I don't mean the fact that MB have been whoring the car all over the place because of the lack of any other really successful racer.

still this question has many answers

maybe because it was the fastest average speed record broken then
or because they made a reconnaissance lap beforehand making notes on a scroll paper that helped them winning the race
or because it was the real last original mille miglia - however there was a race in 1956 but it was banned in 1957 due to two deaths during the race

Yes all these things are facts, but how do we know all of that .. how was the legend created?

Because Denis Jenkinson wrote about it?


I agree, this is a very poorly phrased question.
