1960 Ferrari 250GT SWB Competition Berlinetta (Chassis 2119GT)
One of the most notable GT racers of its time, the 1959/61 250 GT Berlinetta SWB used a short (2,400 mm (94.5 in)) wheelbase for better handling. Of the 176 examples built, both steel and aluminum bodies were used in various road ("lusso") and racing trims. Engine output ranged from 240 PS (177 kW; 237 hp) to 280 PS (206 kW; 276 hp). Development of the 250 GT SWB Berlinetta was handled by Giotto Bizzarrini, Carlo Chiti, and young Mauro Forghieri, the same team that later produced the 250 GTO. Disc brakes were a first on a Ferrari GT, and the combination of low weight, high power, and well-sorted suspension made it competitive. It was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in October and quickly began selling and racing. The SWB Berlinetta won Ferrari the GT class of the 1961 Constructor's Championship.
This particular "SWB", Chassis 2119GT (dark blue in colour and of all-alloy construction) was delivered to PICCININI / WALKER in 1960, registered MO59305, and raced to 1st Place at the 1960 Goodwood Tourist Trophy by Stirling MOSS.
In the first part of the current decade, it was restored by DK ENGINEERING and re-registered "7SPA". In 2012, 2119GT was sold (for a rumoured £7 million!) to Formula One Designer and current Managing Director of Motorsports, Ross BRAWN. Both Ross BRAWN and Stirling MOSS demonstrated the car at the 2015 Goodwood Revival event.
