With racing cars being built mainly for performance, only few of them combine this with admirable beauty. Ferrari’s model 312 P is definitely such an example - thanks to the work of its designers Giacomo Caliri and Edmondo Casoli, but also Enzo Ferrari, who tried to stop the team adding wings or other aerodynamic additions to its beauty - even if they might have improved the car’s performance. 

The 312 P was built by the Maranello company for the 1969 World Sportscar Championship and powered by a stunning 3-litre V12 engine. A short development period and a small budget led to a season of mixed results where, except in Monza and at Le Mans, only one car was sent to the races to take on all the other teams. Its official career ended when the bigger 5-litre 512 S came for the 1970 season to fight the Porsche 917s. 

This book by Gianni Agnesa tells the story of the car - of which only three examples have been built - in every detail, from the very first test, through every race they did with the factory team or later when the North American Racing Team took over the cars. It gives short portraits of the drivers of the 312 P, such as Chris Amon, Mario Andretti, Pedro Rodríguez, Peter Schetty, Mike Parkes, Tony Adamowicz, Chuck Parsons or Sam Posey. The 264-page volume takes us right up today and the one example that is still used on some historic events. The large-format, high quality book produced by McKlein comes in a slipcase and is illustrated by many previously unseen images.

FERRARI 250 GT SWB: The remarkable history of 2689GT

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. Chronicles the full racing history of 2689GT, including its notable start at Le Mans and victories at Monza and on the old street circuit in Brussels, and covers the wider racing successes of the 250 GT SWB. Outlines the engaging backstories 2689GT's principal drivers – Pierre Noblet and Jean Guichet. Includes profiles of some of the most influential engineers and designers in automotive history: Mauro Forghieri, Carlo Chiti and Giotto Bizzarrini all played a part in the 250 GT SWB's genesis.
