Jim Glickenhaus takes his Ferrari P4/5 Competizione out in the fog – Click above to watch video after the jump

Another day, another video of the Jim Glickenhaus' Ferrari P4/5 Competizione in action... not that we're complaining. This time Mr. Glickenhaus takes his one-off racer to Franciacorta for some track time. The fog may be thick, but that didn't stop Glickenhaus from making glorious noises with his Pininfarina-designed track toy.

Hop the jump to take to give your ears some afternoon delight. Thanks for the tip, Enzo!

      Oh, to be obscenely wealthy...

      I think some auto manufacturers and race series welcome the future but some in America are afraid of the future by sticking to nostalgic designs and technology, e.g., 60's style muscle cars and the Nascar series.

      There's a lot of serious motor racing going on using the very latest technology. This car included. Unless you are stuck on some "why are we still burning fossil fuels rant" I have no idea what you are talking about. Looking back?

      I wonder if that is Glick driving in the first bit.

      Anyway: Awesome! Go Jim; livin' the dream. -Now after you do this, have XJ-13 and 33 Stradale replicas made in aluminum and impress us some more!

      I love how the car has plates on it

      How did this video footage compel you to your soapbox of "motorsports looking backwards" and retro-themed muscle cars?
        • 3 Years Ago
        @Sik68 - Because it's a copy of a car that raced 44 years ago. Or at least the bodywork is. Why?

        Does it really matter what the shell looks like? It's built out of something that most people had never heard of when the original was around, the underpinnings of the car are all modern, the engine and all it's parts are modern, the transmission is modern, the suspension is modern.. You get my point?

        The guy is a car fan, he likes his cars. If that shape appeals to him, then more power to him for actually having opinion and taste. Would prefer it if he'd gotten a Enzo, and had it gold coated?

      It's interesting, but what exactly is the point of this exercise? Does this guy simply have so much money, he doesn't know what else to do with it?

      The biggest thing wrong with motorsports today is the incessant looking backwards. Auto racing has to find a way to be relevant in the 21st Century, and throwback cars (and race series) are not the way to do that. Honestly, I'm of an age where my toes are supposed to curl at the sight of the re-imagined Mustang, Camaro and Challenger, but all I can think of when I see one is, gosh, it looks like a gigantic Hot Wheels car...

      Jesus how far do I need to scroll to see the actual car? This better not be 30 second of car footage and 5 minutes of circlejerking intro

      Love that he's rocking NY plates
        • 3 Years Ago
        He used to have the older style NY ones on there which IMO look much better than the new yellow ones. Who thought 70's retro license plates were worth bringing back??
      • 3 Years Ago
      It doesn't copy any specific car from the P Series, but rather it's Pininfarina and Glickenhaus' vision of a modern extension of that series... and I think they nailed it. You can certainly see elements from multiple cars but its all done in a modern way.
