250 GT Berlinette SWB
1960 / 1963
The Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB appeared in 1959, replacing the 250 GT LWB Tour de France. It became the first car known internationally for its Grand Touring victories. At a time when the Ferrari name was already synonymous with performance, the reduction of the chassis of the Ferrari 250s to 2,600 mm (LWB) gave them ideal proportions, while the term SWB, for Short Wheel Base (2,400 mm), gained cult status in the GT category. Considered to be one of the most beautiful cars ever built, the Ferrari 250 GT SWB is regarded as remarkable for its perfect blend of ‘aesthetics’ and ‘utility’.
