For anyone unfamiliar with the Ferrari P4/5, a quick history lesson is in order. The car is the pride and joy of movie producer turned Wall Street fund manager James Glickenhaus, who commissioned Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina to convert a brand new Enzo supercar into a modern iteration of the P3/4 racers from the 1960s.

Still not content with the car after taking delivery of it last year, Glickenhaus has since had a new pair of triangular shaped exhaust tips installed in place of the previous circular units. When asked whether the change was merely cosmetic or practical, Glickenhaus explained that it was a bit of both. Exhaust gases are said to flow better with the new shape as well as air flow leading to the rear wing.

The new set-up also allows the driver to avoid using the muffler during track days by simply flipping a switch in the cockpit. This also has the added benefit of giving a louder exhaust note, which is described by Glickenhaus as being "pretty wild."

      How much will this car actually get driven?

      Maybe a couple of times around at the Hamptons?

        See?

        James Glickenhaus is also well known for letting me borrow his P4/5 for a few days at a time.

        (Waiting for confirmation....)

      This is very old news, and very ugly.

      Hey Mr. Glickenhaus, I've got a few sketches you might want to take a look at if you are interested in a new project.
      Cizeta V16T as the platform with a twin turbo setup and fighterjet style cockpit, your cup of tea ? :)

      Oops! Open mouth, insert foot.
      Sorry James.

      i wonder if he could put the new differential from the F430 Scuderia in that.

      See, Jay Leno? That's how one spends it on cars!!
      (But I wouldn't fit a turbine on it.)

      Only kidding... O:)

      Sounds like the rich man's "soup can" mod. The ricers would approve :)

      And, is it just me, or would that car make the perfect ride for Spider Man? Every time I see it screams "SpideyMobile"

      Oh, come on; you can't tell us how good it sounds and not give us a sound or video clip.

      I'm pretty sure I can speak for a lot of people here in saying that yes, we do want to hear a muffler-free Ferrari V12
