Much has been written about the one-off Ferrari created by Pininfarina for wealthy car collector James Glickenhaus. Named the P4/5 after the famous Ferrari racing machines from the 1960s, this Enzo-based bespoke supercar is a modern day legend not just because it's gorgeous, rare and powerful, but also because Glickenhaus believes it should be driven. He doesn't just show it at parties attended by the rich and famous, he drives it up the hill at Goodwood. Rumor has it the P4/5 already has 6,000 miles on the odo. Glickenhaus is, therefore, our kind of man, so we were very much interested in this new video vignette that popped up on him and his car.

It's produced by Brad Farrell, owner and operator of Kilnjox Media, who hopes to make more short documentaries on various car nuts in the Northeast who "get it" like Glickenhaus does. This one's the first and if reaction to it is positive enough, more will come with a possible cable series in the works. Check out the video after the jump and let us know your reaction in the comments.

      Anyone know what the black car in photo #6 is?
        • 6 Years Ago
        That black car in pic #6 is a Maybach Exelero(SP?).

      This thing is pretty ugly. but not as ugly as the Enzo.

        Wait, I just watched the whole thing.

        No, the rest of the world just didn't care.

        He obviously is overpaid for his "intelligence"
        • 6 Years Ago
        so you'd rather look at a lamborghini or a ferrari than drive it?

        what a tool.

        So much hate.

      For those who may want to see for themselves P 4/5 will be at The Fairfield Concours this Sunday.

      Saw this car at Lime Rock Park in May (I think) 2006,
      both on the track for a photo shoot and in the parking lot during my son's formula mazda race weekend. Have about 36 photo's.

      +1.....Possibly the ugliest Ferrari ever (even better than the New California)!
      • 6 Years Ago
      Now, THIS is supercar, my dear Corvettians :-)
        • 6 Years Ago
        Too bad the Corvette is Mass-Produced and has bearable looks.
      • 6 Years Ago
      While I do not find this design unattractive, I also think that is beside the point. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Ten observers will give six different opinions on anything artistic. Where I feel this design might be more accurately judged is whether it meets the original goal: does it recall the P3/P4 racers of yore? For me, the answer is "kinda." A middling success aesthetically, and a partial success on the design target.

      I can't believe all these negative comments. While I can see some people not necessarily liking the design, I would never consider it ugly. Glickenhaus should be applauded for daring to do what he did, as well as for the fact that he actually drives his cars.

      It looks horrendous. Unfortunately, just like everything Ferrari has churned out recently. :(
      • 6 Years Ago
      Am I the only one who doesn't see the beauty in this design? Everyone always refers to it as superb, or gorgeous.

      I for one think it is hideous from the front 180 degrees. And I have felt that way since day 1.

      It looks quite functional, but not beautiful.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I agree this is the ugliest supercar i think i have ever seen. It looks like a college design project. It is the only supercar i have seen that looks like is was designed around a huge ass windshied wiper. I mean seriously look at that thing. Its all i can see when i look at this car.

      My favorite post-2000 Ferrari production or concept.
