    Ultimatecarpage.com update: Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina

    Dear Ultimatecarpage.com visitor,

    When James Glickenhaus set out to have his Ferrari Enzo rebodied by Pininfarina he could not have imagined the huge impact his 'project' would have. Ever since he released the first details on several message boards early in 2006, the story was picked up magazines all around the world. It might have been Glickenhaus' movie directing background, but the following months the story felt like a genuine thriller for enthusiasts alike. While he released sparse details, all that was known about the shape was that it resembled the Ferrari 330 P3/4 sportscar also owned by Glickenhaus. This caused even more talk as the P3/4 is generally considered one of the best looking machines ever to grace the world's racing tracks. Many magazines used this information for the computer generated suggestions, which a select few knew were far off the finished product. Sadly we were not able to join the global speculation game as Jim let us on his little secret and showed us the finalized design back in January 2006. It has been difficult to keep quiet about the most exciting new car release of this year. July 25th was set by Glickenhaus as the date the first images would be revealed, but sadly today the first image was leaked. In light of this James has graciously allowed us to publish the first images of the styling and information of his glorious Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina. Expect more details to be published here in the next few days. The full set of images will be available from July 29th.

    Yes,

    It's an amazing automobile for sure... It vaguely reminds me of the Ferrari Mythos concept a few years back... but nevertheless, it is absolutely stunnig, the wheels especially.

    Congratulations W on an amazing scoop. I hope this means bigger and better things for you and for the site!

    The car itself is interesting, but I'll wait until I see the full set of pictures to decide whether I really like it.

    The glass cockpit (for loss of a better word) looks different to the one that Jim posted in the Ferrari P4/5 thread...

    It is a one of a kind car, one will be built (more like crafted in this project) and no more.
