You planning to run any ALMS event at all? I am sure IMSA can find a way to let your car race even if ACO won't...

The Gran Turismo decal on the windscreen.. is that because they're a sponser, or is it an indication that the car might be in GT5?

They're a sponsor of the Race. I remain hopeful that she'll be in their game.

If you have a choice I'd personally prefer Forza 3... but that's because that's on the system I own. Still, it'd be cool either way.

Oooh.. the plot thickens?

Today, the U.S. embarked on a more ambitious project: to make a second P4 / 5, and align the start of the next edition of the 24h Nürburgring! The Competizione will be bound in the category "experimental" and could face the Alfa Zagato TZ3 Rome and the Porsche 911 Spyder and 918 hybrid.

Unlike the first model, built on the basis of Enzo, the racing version will use the chassis of the 430 Scuderia and the engine of the GT2. Why not also use the chassis of the GT2? Because James Glickenhaus then heard to approve his new toy for the road!
It'll be quite brilliant if it ends up at LeMans.

So ACO has taken notice....(pity that they refer to the TZ3, which is only a rebodied Gillet Vertigo, and has nothing to do with Alfa Romeo...)

as it is supposed to emulate the 1967 P4, "rectangular" is not a word that I would use. Sexy is OK though

Aero wise, the platform beneath is best left as big as it can be....
