If you’ve ever seen photos of Jim Glickenhaus’ amazing one-off Ferrari P4/5 then you’ll know that all it takes is money to make your dreams come true. The P4/5 was commissioned from Pininfarina back in 2005 and cost Glickenhaus an estimated $4 million US to complete. It was built off the platform of a Ferrari Enzo, and was a tribute to the 1967 Ferrari 330 P 3/4. I’ve been fortunate enough to have seen the car in person, and I can tell you that it is nothing short of spectacular from every angle. The P4/5 made its debut back in 2006 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elégance in California and from then on has become somewhat of a legend.
Jump forward now 3 years to 2009 when Glickenhaus announced that he wanted to run a race version of the P4/5 in the 2011 24 Hours Nürburgring. As mentioned the original car was based on a Ferrari Enzo, the new car however, coined the P4/5 Competizione, would be based upon a Ferrari F430 Scuderia. It’s now 2011 and the P4/5 Competizione is finally complete and undergoing testing. Looks wise the car is just as stunning as the original renderings we brought you back in August. The 2011 24 Hours Nürburgring is scheduled to run mid-June, which means that this baby better have every nut and bolt gone through if it’s going to be competitive in the Experimental Class in which it’s running.
