Buchbeschreibung Bay View Books Ltd, 1998. Hardcover. Buchzustand: gut. 1998. An automotive history of the Ferrari 250 GTO, written by a GTO owner. It covers: design; engineering; development; testing; race data; competition history; driver memories; and individual car histories. There are contributions from Ferrari's chief engineer and body/chassis designer at the time. This magnificent book in the Great Cars series tells the story of a Ferrari 250 GTO with a particularly interesting and varied history. The car is chassis number 4153 GT and it won the Tour de France--an arduous 10-day race-cum-rally--in the hands of Lucien Bianchi and Georges Berger in 1964. That success typifies this car's competition life, for it did virtually every form of motorsport, including endurance racing (it finished fourth in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1963), hill-climbing and rallying. All this is covered in fascinating detail, supported by a fine collection of period photographs, including color. Any Ferrari enthusiast will enjoy this addition to the Great Cars series Keith Bluemel writes for many Ferrari-specific magazines around the world, including Cavallino (he has been competition editor since 2004), Ferrari Magazine (the official magazine produced for the factory by Condé Nast) and Prancing Horse. His books about Ferrari include the acclaimed Ferrari 250 GTO, co-authored with Jess G. Pourret and published in 1998 in three languages. I have the Ferrari 250 GTO Landmarques Book(hardcover)with the #6 (#3647)Surtees Tourist trophy Goodwood 62' Car on the front cover of the dustjacket and the 5573 GT 64'Bodied GTO #118 Mike Parkes Nurburgring Car on the Back cover Dustjacket.It is the 1998 Hardcover book by Bayview Books.192 pages,no Index. It is a concise Chassis by Chassis book of all 36 cars,including the 62' cars and 64' Bodied as well as it's other variations and other bodied cars. Period Black and White photography and Color photography,as well as a Chapter on Particular GTO in Color closeup and a Cutaway Drawing of another GTO. The Competition is touched upon such as the Aston Martin 214 and The Cobra Daytona Coupe and Lightweight Jag E-Type,other Ferraris,and Corvette (sometimes referred as just Chevrolet)although there was no race where 6 Competition Corvette Sting-ray Lightweights ran the authors are confusing the Corvette Z06 and Mystery Motor Corvettes from Daytona 24hours with the Actual Corvette "Light Lightweight" Corvette Grand Sport. There is also one section by a contributor which to me seemed like a put down on other non-ferrari owners/drivers/racers and how Amateur they are or something to that extent which I thought was snobbish and uncalled,as if the other racers just because they were not known or known as well as the drivers covered in here such as Innes Ireland,Mike Parkes,Bob Grossman,Etcera are nobodies which is unfair. There is also a Chapter on Owning/Running a GTO,Wins/losses,Races,etcera.The Author Bias is evident because of his previous ownership of one of the cars besides these flaws otherwise informative and in-depth,although not worth the hefty price for a book in such a ordinary everyday Hardcover presentation.(I paid said hefty price,but not too unreasonable).The book is a must for Admirers of The 250 GTO and Fanatics of it.Highly recommend it!
