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.


Count Gastone Brilli Peri was a true pilot: from bicycle races to motorcycle and automotive races. In this book his truest profile and his exciting life full of speed.


The story of Enrico Piaggio, the ingenious industrialist who in the immediate post-war period believed in the design of a means of transport suitable for everyone to drive. Thus was born the Vespa, the best-selling and best-known scooter in the world, a symbol of Italian creative dynamism in its most successful expression. Since then the history of the Piaggio company has changed its course but today, after more than seventy years from that historical intuition, the brand remains tied in the collective imagination of each of us to a carefree lifestyle and still capable of looking with hope for the future.


First envisaged in the Sixties by a rising, confident Alfa Romeo, the Alfa 6 was finally launched in 1979 by a far different company: one fighting an uphill battle for its own survival against formidable odds. Misunderstood and underappreciated in period, this model is now, forty years after its launch, finally gaining appreciation among the most ardent Alfa Romeo fans... Automotive Designer and Historian Matteo Licata tries to finally set the record straight about this often maligned Alfa Romeo model, with a book rigorously based on original documents from the period.
