It's what we all aspire to as car guys; to be wealthy enough to indulge any flights of fancy and see our dreams rendered in metal and composite. James Glickenhaus' ultimate custom, the one of a kind Ferrari P 4/5 has earned the right to wear official Ferrari badging, and we don't know of anyone else who's used Pininfarina to carry out the design of their personal ride. In this clip, he expounds a bit on why he actually drives his singular Ferrari, and his reasoning resonates with us -- watch on after the jump to see some great shots of this road-borne flying machine in action.

      Check out more videos of Jim's Ferrari P3/4 and his Ford GT40 MKIV on www.cirkitvision.com, under the title The Ford/Ferrari Wars...!

        There's no Ford/ Ferrari wars.
        They're not even in the same market segment yea except for the GT. But to pit that against which Ferrari?

      The guy has a Ferrari that suspends from the ceiling in his garage and comes down with the pull of a magical lever.

      I hate this guy.

      It really is a pretty faithful homage to the 3/4. I applaud him and his desire and his effort. And to drive it means he really DOES appreciate it.

      Not the first time "Glick" has been featured at Autoblog:

      Also, do a Google search on the guy. Pretty interesting background. No wonder he can afford to create his own Ferrari.

      I personally think I like this better than the Enzo. The Enzo looks like a cousin of the F117 Stealth fighter, this to me looks more like a Ferrari than the Enzo ever did. Jimy, look closely at the video and you'll see the passenger seat. All previous comments to me spells ENVY.

      If he does get pulled over for not having a front plate, I'm pretty sure he can afford the ticket. Considering he's got a garage full of classic Ferrari race cars, a $5 million Pininfarina-designed one-off Enzo--and a Cayenne and a Maserati for daily drivers.

      I love seeing a car like this or an aston martin or similar on the highway. its cool seeing something so different in a sea of sameness.

      also, i dont think anyone has any room to make fun of that car. he had several million dollars to create his dream car. when you have a priceless ferrari in your garage, then you can talk.

      yeah, but when you turn an Enzo to this monstrosity, it all seems just wrong.

      The greatest Ferrari ever made in my book. Was lucky enough to get a ride in this machine. Check out the video of the trip I'll never forget.

      Dude... Glickenhaus is a member of the same forum I'm in and told us all the nitty-gritty details about the process.
