In-game descriptionEdit

"The predecessor to the 250GTO, with innumerable wins in the world of endurance racing."

The new 250 GT Berlinetta announced at the 1959 Paris Motor Show was styled by Pininfarina, with the 250 in the naming relating to the 250 cc per cylinder found in the 3 L, 12-cylinder engine.

There was one thing that was definitively different about this car from previous models. By shortening the 250 GT series chassis that was traditionally 2,600 mm down to 2,400 mm, they aimed to improve cornering agility to give it an edge in GT category racing. In later years it came to be called the 250 GT Berlinetta Passo Corto, or 250 GT Berlinetta SWB (abbreviation for Short Wheel Base in English) to distinguish it from the previous models.

The SWB began production in the following year of 1960, and was available in an all-aluminium, racing bodyshell as well as a steel bodyshell for road use. The 2,953 cc V12 SOHC produced between 216 BHP to 276 BHP depending on the tuning, and it was the first mass-production model by Ferrari to be equipped with four-wheel disk brakes.

In racing, the improvement of the car's performance from the shorter wheelbase paid off; nearly unstoppable, it won the Tour De France 3 years in a row from 1960 to 1962, and won the GT category in the Le Mans in 1960 and 1961, two years in a row. It also won the Nürburgring 1000 km race two years in a row from 1961 to 1962. It later passed the baton on to the 250 GTO, an evolution of this model.

Only 162 of these cars were ever made.
