The 250-series was an early Ferrari success story and in 1959 spawned one of the most recognisable sports cars ever built. It is now also one of the most coveted. The 250 GT Berlinetta (aka SWB, ‘Short Wheelbase’) had a dual role as supreme grand tourer and outstanding racing car. Chassis 2689GT, the subject of this book, was purchased by amateur racer Pierre Dumay on behalf of his friend Pierre Noblet – who had written off his previous 250 GT SWB in an accident at Clermont-Ferrand. Shortly after taking delivery, Noblet and co-driver Jean Guichet took the new car to a class-winning third place overall in the Le Mans 24 Hours – the dawn of a relatively brief, but very bright, competition history.

Livre remarquable et passionnant sur l'histoire de l'une des 250 SWB. Tout y est : l'histoire de la lignée 250 SWB, les courses auxquelles la 2689 a participé, sa vie post-compétition, les impressions de conduite et une merveilleuse galerie de photographies. Un plaisir qui ne se déguste malheureusement qu'en anglais. Mais c'est un détail !

Très beau livre avec des photos inédites et des explications très détaillées. Que les anglais pour faire ce type de livre sur l'automobile quelque soit la marque.
