Classic & Sports Car, June 2020
'The package is attractive, the paper thick and the finish excellent, belying its price. It would appeal to more people than first impressions suggest, becasue this is no characterless race-by-race account of one car. The fact that it found success in great races is a bonus.'
Auto Italia, April 2020
'This book is entertainingly written in lively fashion, and we especially enjoyed the racing story.'
Enzo, Number 8, Spring 2020
'The Porter Press "exceptional cars" series delights us with an eighth book devoted to the 250 GT SWB which finished 3rd, behind two prototypes, during its first outing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 1961. As usual, this book is easy to access (in English) and takes the party to tell the complete story of a model by focusing in particular on the fate of a chassis that it pursues until modern times. Numerous archival and current photos, rich text and very low prices for this essential collection.'
The Society of Automotive Historians, February 2020
'...the book represents excellent value as well as being a very enjoyable read.'
Auto Express, January 2020
'We love the photography throughout, a mixture of period shots and a wonderful studio shoot. It's a good read, too.'
Octane, June 2016
'The former Ferrari F1 technical director fully supported this book, his enthusiasm clear by the depths that he has allowed Doug Nye's research to go to, and by the high quality of the 320-page publication.
Brawn Nye and Porter Press have produced something special here, a record not only of a car but also of a wonderful era in motor racing.'
Motorsport, January 2016
'As you'd expect, Nye's deep knowledge of Ferraris - especially this one which he drove often - serves up a comprehensive story of how these gorgeous vehicles were developed from the first 250GTs, along with the variations between road and race examples, but Brawn's insight into both design and ownership of this wonderful car is a unique bonus.'

Ferrari Owners Club
'The author Doug Nye, acknowledged expert historian and raconteur, who succeeds in capturing the essence of the era and its racing people through incisive, imaginative writing, which retains interest from cover to cover. Thoroughly recommended.' DSC

'Written by one of the best writers in the business and produced by one of the mot credible publishers, this is the eighth book in Porter Press's Exceptional Cars series. As with all of the books in the series, evocative period imagery is combined with modern studio-shot pictures to great effect...' Richard Dredge
