If you're not familiar with Jason Castriota, you've undoubtedly seen his creations. The New York native worked under Ken Okuyama at Pininfarina for eight years, during which he had a hand in designing such masterworks as the Maserati Birdcage 75, Maserati GranTurismo, Ferrari 599, Ferrari 612 Kappa and the Rolls-Royce Hyperion. He's also the man behind James Glickenhaus' Ferrari P4/5, the rebodied Ferrari Enzo that set the world (and forums) ablaze a few years back.

After leaving Pininfarina in late 2008, Castriota joined Stile Bertone in December of last year and his newest creation is being teased out in a series of webisodes that will document the design and development of a new supercar based on an unknown architecture. The first episode in the weekly series (posted after the break) offers some cursory details surrounding Castriota's new project before its official unveiling at the Shanghai Motor Show this April. Visitors to the InsideProjectM website are invited to speculate on what lies beneath the cloaked shape above, vote on the vehicle's name and follow the project's progress on something called Twitter. Our interest is piqued and judging by his past efforts, we doubt Jason will disappoint.

      The P4/5 is a very, very ugly car that manages to make an Enzo look like a kit car.

        I agree. I honestly thought the pictures of that car were bad renderings. But nope they actually butchered a envo and ended up with that. Take a look at it again and notice the giant windshield wiper. That thing would bug the heck out of me

        well i think it's beautiful =) form follows function, but doesn't necessarily mean that it will be pleasing to the eye. like the Gumpert Apollo according to Richard Hammond

      I, for one, refuse to take part in Internet hype.

      Will check on the car when it's ready.
