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.

      Pininfarina, I'll take a P4/5, and I tell you what, I'll give you 5 million for it.

      (Nevermind the fact that the number is in Yen)

      Am I the only person who thinks this car is absolutely hideous? Not a single redeeming quality style-wise.

      Thanks for the statistical data. It was interesting for learning!

      Wow, the first three comments on here are completely unrelated spam. This is getting pathetic. The first two don't even make sense.

      Evo 098, Gordon Murray:

      "How many of our today's cars will be considered classics in, say, 20 or 30 years' time?

      One that will be is the brand-new Pininfarina-designed one-off Ferrari P4/5 supercar, based on a Ferrari Enzo. All supercars have presence and a certain "dramatic" look, but not all of them have style. The Enzo is certainly dramatic, but it manages to look very large (it is!) and very disjointed - the lines just don't flow. Panel shut gaps are too big and obvious, the front overhang is just too long, and the whole effect is styling rather than style.

      Enter the P4/5 - a truly beautiful, balanced shape. I'm sure Pininfarina will have the "retro" finger pointed at them, but while there's no mistaking its heritage, the style is crisp, fresh and bang up to date. This is not a sycophantic exercise like the Ford GT but very much a new design in its own right. If I was offered the keys to either the Enzo or the P4/5, I know which one I would be driving home."
