The 2011 24 Hours of Nürburgring is long over, which means we're due for an update on how James Glickenhaus and his beautiful Ferrari P4/5 Comeptizione fared. Here's the short answer: they finished pretty well. Overall, the car ended up in 40th, but managed a third-place in the E1-XP2 class. Not too shabby.

The videos after the jump were shot by Kinetic Fin, and take you through the entire race weekend in two chapters. There's some great footage in both, so we'd highly suggest taking the next 20 minutes or so to enlighten yourself.

      Why is this amazing and wonderful story recorded by some idiot. There are amateur kids who record Honda and VW meets that could have done a better job.

        Definitely agree! SO tired of these car videos with music blaring instead of the sounds I want to hear blaring--the freakin' cars!! Even Lamborghini in their "preview video" of the Aventador had the music so loud you couldn't hear the darn car... such a shame.

      it´s funny that the pictured Scirocco in front finnished ~20th while the Ferrari ended up in 40th place, pretty embarrassing imho :)

        The P4/5 Competizione is a prime example of what happens when form supersedes function. This has to be one of the most expensive 40th place finishers in the history of the 24 hours of Nurburgring. :)

      The flat, tiled roof of the Pininfarina design studio in Turin, Italy, is a secret paradise. A short stairway above the third floor and hidden from public view, immortal automobiles appear here almost routinely. Weeks before arriving in this northern Italian city, we'd seen photos of the car standing before us now, and we'd drawn our conclusions, mostly enthusiastic. Yet seen suddenly in three throbbing dimensions, this four-wheeled aggressor seemed to morph before our eyes. Jason Castriota, an energetic native New Yorker and lead designer for Pininfarina special projects, had warned us how different a car can look in real life — and if you doubt it, consider the first Porsche Cayman you witnessed after seeing it only in pictures.

        SO true---real life; the light, the angles, the human eye...much better than any camera can convey. And I think the Cayman is a classic too.

      What ever hipster put this together should have made a video of her Fiat 500 instead.

      I actually watch the 24hr broadcast of the race for about 15hours it was pretty bloody boring except for some catapulting BMW Z4. Coverage at night was limited to 2 cameras which pretty much none existent. This video makes it much more exciting than it is, if you want to watch 24hr race spend your cash at LeMans instead or go to Spa, at least they got killer fries.

        You can't judge this race by watching through a stationary camera from the same corner for 24 hours. Of course that's boring. You have to be there live to really appreciate it. I heard this race is more fun to be at than Lemans.
