Though they're a bit more rare than they used to be, the world still has custom design houses like Pininfarina and Giugiaro. Every so often they're asked to create custom bodywork on already-existing cars, and every so often the result is absolutely stunning. What one-off custom was better than the original?
Ah, the 24 Hours of Lemons. The racing series where ingenuity, driving skills, ridiculousness and bribery all come together for an unforgettable experience. But at a Lemons race this weekend at the Monticello Motor Club, the pace car cost slightly more than just $500: James Glickenhaus' fantastic Ferrari P4/5 by…
James Glickenhaus is turning his garage of dream cars into an auction house tomorrow night, selling off trips to join him and his team testing their one-off Ferrari P4/5 for the 24 Hours of Nürburgring race. We want to go to there.
If you'll recall, Jim Glickenhaus's Ferrari P4/5 Competizione made its racing debut at this the Nürburgring 24 hour earlier this year. Since then, we've seen a few video clips, but this long-form video wrap of the event contains some never-before-seen racing footage. Jim, you've done it again.

The Ferrari P4/5 Competizione privateer racing team spent the weekend practicing for its debut at this year's 24 Hours of Nürbrugring. Everyone there had a camera. Everyone took photos/video of it. Here's the best of.
On an April evening four years ago I wandered into an underground parking garage and happened upon the Mercedes–Benz pictured above: one of Ralph Lauren’s cars to be exhibited in Paris this coming summer.
We showed you the first photographs of Jim Glickenhaus's one-off P4/5 on the track Friday. Now we have video. Watch, listen and drool as the Ferrari-based P4/5 makes a few laps. (Hat tip to Jim and horspowr1001!)
Jim Glickenhaus' amazing one-off Ferrari P4/5 Competizione's finally complete, on the track, and better looking than we could have ever imagined. And we spent a lot of time imagining it. First photos and test report below.
If we were obscenely rich car owners, we hope that we'd be obscenely rich in the vein of James Glickenhaus, owner of the one-and-only Ferrari P4/5. As opposed to shutting cars away in garages merely to accrue value, the Glickster takes his unique vehicles outdoors where they accrue lust from car nuts like us. In…
