Actual Car Information: One of the most important GT racers of its time, the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB was first unveiled at the 1959 Paris Salon. The designation ”SWB” indicated the short wheelbase chassis designed for better handling compared to the former long wheelbase version.
The car was available in competition specification with an aluminum body, lightweight interior trim and with the engine in a higher state of tune. 176 samples were built and sold from 1959 to 1963. The car was hugely successful in racing, capable of beating many larger-engine vehicles. It claimed GT class of the Constructor’s Championship for Ferrari in 1961. In 2004, Sports Car International placed the 250 GT SWB seventh on a list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. Motor Trend Classic placed the 250 SWB fifth on a list of the ten ”Greatest Ferraris of All Time.” At ”Coppa InterEuropa Monza” in 1960, the SWBs took all the first three positions, among which Carlo Maia Abate’s SWB with number 62 won the top prize!
