Shipping calculated at checkout.
This book is by far the most lavish study of the GTO ever attempted. Years of research by the joint authors, long-time Ferrari writer Keith Bluemel and renowned Ferrari historian Jess G. Pourret (also a former GTO owner), have uncovered a mass of detailed information about this revered Ferrari.The description, analysis and illustration in this book will satisfy the thirst of anyone who admires the GTO. Important participants in the GTO story have opened up memories and personal records for this book. On the design and engineering side, Giotto Bizzarrini, Mauro Forghieri and Sergio Scaglietti have been consulted. Many of the most distinguished GTO drivers, from John Surtees to Nino Vaccarella, have provided their recollections. Painstaking data gathering by veteran Ferrari race entrant Jacques Swaters, of Brussels-based Ecurie Francorchamps, has generated depth of detail that is unsurpassed. Numerous owners, past and present, have contributed to detailed biographies of the 36 examples of the 250 GTO that were made. More than 300 photographs, mainly from the car's design and development phase and its active 1962-64 period in GT racing at World Championship level, bring the GTO to life. Strenuous efforts have been made to source illustrations from the best contemporary photographers world-wide, with special emphasis on the use of rare period shots. A further bonus is a gallery of modern photography of an exceptional GTO. Most of the photographs have not been published before.
