P4/5 Competizione Gets on Track


James Glickenhaus' one-off racing Ferrari takes to the track, and we've got the video footage to prove it.

You may already be familiar with the Ferrari P4/5, a fun little project commissioned by uber-wealthy investment professional and former film director James Glickenhaus. Back in 2005 Glickenhaus bought the last Ferrari Enzo ever made and commissioned Pininfarina to turn it into a modern tribute to his 1967 Ferrari 330 P3/4. The result was the P4/5 by Pininfarina, a unique creation that prompted Ferrari to launch its own coachbuilding division. But his desire for something even faster didn't stop there.

Enter the one-off Ferrari P4/5 Competizione, which has been captured on film by veteran car-spotter Marchettino. Powered by a 4.0-liter V8 engine with over 500 horsepower, the Glickenhaus team's unique 430 Scuderia-based carbon fiber racer has been competing in GT2 racing across Europe.

This may not be the last iteration we'll yet see, though. Glickenhaus and company have revealed plans to build an LMP1 prototype to compete in the top class at Le Mans against the likes of Audi and Toyota. Whether they stand a chance or not, we're sure eager to see them try.
