HISTORY
The Revs Institute founder Miles Collier was born into an American automotive dynasty. Both his father and uncle, Miles and Sam, respectively, are credited with introducing sports car racing to the United States during the 1930s. Together, the pair were early members of the Sports Car Club of America fostering Mr Collier’s early passion for auto racing.

In 1986, Mr Collier acquired the Cunningham Museum collection of longtime family friend Briggs Swift Cunningham, which included the first Ferrari racing car ever sold in the United States and one of six Bugatti Royales ever produced.

What is now known today as the Collier Collection began to take shape during the late 1980s and 1990.

The Revs Institute was founded in 2009 as a reflection of that determination and to serve as a center of scholarly study. That academic mission was bolstered in 2011 by the acquisition of the Ludvigsen Library; Karl Ludvigsen, a former General Motors consultant and past editor of Car and Driver and Motor Trend magazines, had assembled a vast library with over 7,000 automotive books, 300,000 photographs and hundreds of research files.

FACILITIES
A library as well as a digital library. There is also a museum store.
