What happens when you take a Ferrari 430 Scuderia and build from it the most badass-looking endurance racing car on the planet? You get the P4/5C.
Ciao! I'm the Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina. I'm one of a kind, and that makes me pretty special (even for a Ferrari). My muscle comes from an Enzo Ferrari and my bodywork, handcrafted in Italy, is inspired by the iconic Ferrari racing cars of yesteryear. Molto bellissimo, no?
The warm sunshine fills me with vigor and…
Pininfarina is the design house that has been responsible for pretty much every great Ferrari production car ever built. Ferrari says that the LaFerrari hypercar was designed without input or help from Pininfarina. It's more like Pininfarina gave Ferrari all the ingredients, and they baked them into a beautiful,…
One of the most beautiful race cars we've seen over the last few years is the Ferrari 430-based P4/5 Competizione of badass Ferrari-collector James Glickenhaus.
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.
Who cares how the other-half lives? The question is how's extreme one-percenter car-guy Jim Glickenhaus livin'? This video love-letter says it all (with ADULT LANGUAGE, kids). It's set at Villa d'Este, but watch for a teaser of the Ferrari P4/5 Competizione's debut at the Nürburgring 24 this weekend.
The 24 Hours of Nürburgring starts Saturday afternoon (sauerkraut time) and with the waving of the green flag comes with it the hopes of many Americans cheering on the P4/5 Competizione. Here's what the 'Ring looked like this morning.
Jim Glickenhaus’s not-for-sale bespoke racing Ferrari dropped by Lake Como the previous weekend for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este after taking 13th at the 42. Adenauer ADAC Rundstrecken-Trophy at the Nürburgring the previous Saturday. Among the many nattily attired ladies in attendance, one made the perfect…
A story hit the wires yesterday that Jim Glickenhaus is considering a production run of his P4/5 Competizione if Nürburgring 24 organizers deny the team's bid to use active aerodynamics. Put your checkbook away, kids, Glick told us exclusively it just ain't true.
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.
The P 4/5 Competizione hit the ‘ring today and not surprisingly the photographs taken from the car's Facebook page are fairly easy on the eyes. If the pictures aren't enough, you can catch a very brief glimpse of the Competizione at the Nurburgring with some other vehicles we wouldn't mind owning in a video here.
The latest video from the P4/5 Competizione marketing project reveals the racer's creator Jim Glickenhaus has two new obsessions to go with his car fetish: Matt Hardigree and juice in a bag.
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.
