    very useful. Once I had a ride in a race car as a lad and with every upshift my head hit the roll bar - ouch!

    2009GT is actually a pale metallic blue.

    Yes, a very beautiful car. If you think it looks beautiful in the photograph, it looks even better in the metal I assure you. 250 GT SWB Comp. 61, ex Rob Walker/Stirling Moss. The ultimate spec for an SWB with light alloy body, lightened/stiffened chassis, high power competition engine with 3 x big Webers.

    2009 GT: it is Celeste Gainsborough, to be a bit more precise.

    thank you gentlemen. How much lighter might the alloy cars be compared to the steel? Are there many steel bodied cars that compete in historic races?

    I see one reference saying the alloy body saves 300 pounds ...

    thanks for these pictures. Seems 1759GT has the unusual air intakes on the rocker panels, was that for directing air to the brakes? Also what is that black line taped to the fender?
