    As beautiful as this car is I simply can't get over the fact that it is a 430 Scuderia chassis with a V8, it really is a completely different car. It feels like when the Jaguar XJ220 was unveiled with a V12 and then changed it to a V6 turbo. it just loses a little of that status that comes with a Ferrari V12. I like the road-going version much more, it's far better than an Enzo.

    If I am wrong please correct me but how much does the P4/5 Comp share with the original?

    A car based on an Enzo chassis wouldn't be race legal nor would it be competive with it's V 12 Race engine.

    When she's back in street form P 4/5 C will be a lot faster than Ferrari P 4/5 by Pininfarina.

    Unrestricted her street motor will easily make 600+ HP and she will weigh 450 lbs less. about 2200 lbs and on a track she'll fly by with twice the downforce of Ferrari P 4/5 by Pininfarina

    Ferrari P 4/5 by Pininfarina will remain a much more luxurious GT car.

    It got alot of parts from the 430 scuderia, the engine and suspension from the Ferrari F430 GT2. Why not have a V8, If you have a 430 scuderia chassis which is used to a V8 why not stick with a V8. Also a highly tuned V8 will be lighter than a V12.

    Why the fin? Is yaw instability an issue?

    "The enginers can explain better but I think the fin does several things. It provides lateral stability. It makes the car less likely to flip sideways. It increases downforce in an efficient way vrs producing drag."

    isn't it mandatory for prototypes?

    Yeah that was the reason why LMP ran them and why F1 ran them.....This seems strange on a GT car(I guess technically its a "prototype")...

    Which is why I wonder if the original had stability issue...

    It's probably more about fiddling with the car as a hobby.

    Fiddling with a purpose.. there's no point in creating a race car if you're not trying to win with it.

    Although I agree it looks cleaner without the fin, if it helps win races like others have said, there's no reason not to implement it.

    So is it still a one off or are there more than one chassis?

    I believe there's just the one.

    The car has a pretty tiny chance of winning. It is a one off that lacks major factory support for development and testing that got trounced last year. Glick can improve it, and props to him for living the dream, but a win is unrealistic I'd say.
