P4/5 CRAZY FERRARI -James Glickenhaus’s final show

It was done back in 2005 and it as something nice to look at that also offered blistering performance, but since then things have changed.

Jim Glickenhaus is our favourite American billionaire! This guy became very famous in the auto world a few years when he decided to turn one of his Ferrari Enzo into a one-off bespoke hyper car inspired by road-legal racing Ferraris of the 60s. The result of that was the Pininfarina P4/5, but that wasn’t the end for him, he is now working on an actual racing version of that car called the P4/5 Competizione and when it’s done he’s going to race with it. Good man! They’ve put together a sort of documentary of this car being built, and here’s the part 1 in which Jim himself talk you through his ideas.

The performance has become as no longer enough and the racing inspired looks needed an update. Enter the Ferrari P4/5 Competizione, the racing version of the street legal single unit production.

So far, the only thing we have available on this car is a set of renderings that have been released on the Italian manufacturer’s Facebook page.

The racing car definitely looks like the original P4/5 with a few “go faster” bits attached to it but in actual fact the two are very different.

For starters the chassis underneath the Ferrari P4/5 Competizione is taken from a Ferrari 430 Scuderia. Then there’s the suspension kit, the entire drivetrain and the V8 engine that powers the beast which is lifted out of the Ferrari F430 GT2 ALMS racer.

According to Ferrari, they hope to have the P4/5 Competizione ready in time for the Nurburgring endurance race that’s scheduled to start on the 25th of June, 2011.

We have had already heard of P4/5 Competizione. However, now its creator, James Glickenhaus with his team, has revealed the final renderings of the future P4/5 Competizione. The awesome beauty in red with white and blue straps on the hood will be built on a Ferrari 430 Scuderia base and will feature the suspension and V-8 drivetrain of an F430 GT2 ALMS racing car. The car will be offered in race as well as road legal car and work on P4/5 Competizione will be finished in time to prepare for the 24 Hours of Nurburgring on June 25, 2011.

The renderings above give the clear picture of what the final product will look like. The design is somewhat close to that of P4/5 roadcar, but it has some race-specific components upgraded which is evident from the front splitter to the rear wing and a livery inspired by racing Ferraris of yore. The initial reports indicate that it will be classified as an experimental racer in the same genre as the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid.
