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 colour. Any Ferrari enthusiast will enjoy this addition to the Great Cars series.

The Ferrari 250 GTO is one of the most successful and highly regarded cars ever produced. Built purely for racing, the 250 GTO dominated the Grand Touring racing category in the period 1962–64 and raced in all of the world's sports car classics, including Le Mans. Ferrari built just 40 production cars, and almost all were raced. Because of its sheer beauty, its immensely successful track record and the relatively small number of cars built, the 250 GTO is among the world’s most valuable cars and examples now change hands for sums in excess of $10 million.

This Porter Press series selects individual vehicles that standout in the racing world, and commits to a full biography of them. ? This luminary among Jaguar Lightweight E-types made its race debut at the Nurburgring, freshly modified for aerodynamics and with an incredible engine developed by masterminds Dr. Samir Klat and Prof. Harry Watson. Peter Lumsden and Peter Sargent proved its high-speed potential by running third in the GT class at Le Mans the next year, and three months later, it was the best-placed E-type at the Tourist Trophy at Goodwood, as well as fifth in the GT class. 49 FXN’s successes go on, and you’ll see them all in full across nearly 300 period images, many previously unpublished, and plenty of full color studio photography.

This book tells the fascinating story of the last and most successful of the Iso AC/3 Grifo race cars from the fabulous period of sports car racing in the mid-1960s. The A3/C was the creation of Giotto Bizzarrini, the engineer who developed the famed Ferrari 250 GTO. In its short but varied racing career, which included outings with two Grand Prix drivers, '22'' showed itself to be one of the world's fastest racing sports and GT cars, its top speed on the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans, nearly 190mph, bettered only by the 7-liter Ford GT Mk II. This book celebrates the life of '222' and the against-the-odds efforts of Bizzarrini, a genius with the ambition to produce the best GT race car of its era.

This sumptuous book tells the story of one of the world’s most important racing cars. Always raced in Gulf’s iconic blue-and- orange colours, this Ford GT40, known by its chassis number ‘1075’, won the Le Mans 24 Hours not just once but twice, in 1968 and 1969, and the second victory came after the closest fight ever seen at the finish of this great endurance race. Four other championship wins – at Brands Hatch, Spa, Watkins Glen and Sebring – add to this GT40’s distinction as the very best of its breed, driven by ‘greats’ such as Jacky Ickx, Pedro Rodríguez and Brian Redman. The car’s entire competition life is covered in fascinating detail, together with biographies of its drivers and insights into John Wyer’s crack team that ran it, all supported by a fine collection of period photographs.

This book tells the remarkable history of an Alfa Romeo Monza and its characterful drivers and owners, some with life stories worthy of a movie script. Built in 1933, ‘221130’ was raced that year by the Hon. Brian Lewis and won its debut at Brooklands and the arduous Mannin Moar race on the Isle of Man. The car continued to be raced until the war by John Cobb (1934) who later was a land speed record holder, Luis Fontes (1935) who was also an aeroplane racer, Anthony Powys-Lybbe (1936–37) and Fay Taylour (1938) who was interned during the Second World War for her Fascist links, at venues as diverse as Vila Real (Portugal) and Phoenix Park (Ireland). Post-war, a succession of notable owners included Peter Hampton, the Hon. Patrick Lindsay and Hubert Fabri, all passionate collectors, to arrive at its status today as one of the more important surviving Monzas, and a car with so much charisma and historic interest that it is a most worthy addition to the acclaimed ‘Great Cars’ series
