Pininfarina: now taking orders
A couple months ago we brought you emerging details and images of James Glickenhaus' Ferrari P4/5, a one-off supercar designed just for the collector by Pininfarina, at a cost of about $4 million. If you've got a similar wad of cash burning a hole in your pocket and want a truly unique supercar of your own, Pininfarina will gladly separate you from the former and provide you with the latter.
Andrea Pininfarina says that since unveiling the one-off Maserati Birdcage concept, the Italian design house has received a number of requests from interested customers who want their own dreamcars made to spec.
Pininfarina recently added another high-tech wind-tunnel to their facilities in Turin, this one a $4 million+ wind-tunnel specially for testing ground effects which, even more than the visible wings and spoilers that dominated sportscar design in the last century, are the key to designing modern supercars with 200-mph capabilities.
We'll start saving up now. In the meantime, we'll look forward to the next one-off project Pininfarina is commissioned to build.
