One of the most important GT car of its time, the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta passo corto "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.
The car was hugely successful in racing, capable of beating many larger-engine vehicles. In 2004, Sports Car International placed the 250 GT Berlinetta passo corto "SWB" seventh on a list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. Motor Trend Classic placed it fifth on a list of the ten "Greatest Ferraris of All Time". The 1:18th replica is a must for any Ferrari collector!
