Book Description: Pininfarina styling, 12 cylinders, 300bhp -- the 250GT short-wheel base had all the classic Maranello hallmarks and something more: versatility. Built from 1959 to 1962, the Ferrari 250GT SWB could be used as a commuter during the week, then get its fires pumped up and win at Le Mans or Sebring on the weekend. No other Ferrari -- probably no other car -- has ever been that adaptable. Award-winning American author Ken Gross relates the 250 GTO SWB's full racing history, from Goodwood to Nassau, and examines special-bodied SWBs. Fully updated with exclusive color photography for a new generation of auto enthusiasts, this is the complete story of a superb car that brought an unmistakable Italian flair for design to the fore.
