The Glickenhaus team is hard at work on its Ferrari P4/5 Competizione. The machine was recently spotted getting a thorough thrashing around Imola, and YouTube user Marchettino was kind enough to grab a few clips of the terror in action.

Last we heard, Glickenhaus was considering using the machine for competition in the LMP1 class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2014. That ambition will require more than a few sponsors, and Glickenhaus has cautioned that nothing is set in stone as of yet. Even so, it's encouraging to see the P4/5 Competizione hammering some tarmac.

The machine makes use of a 4.0-liter Ferrari-derived V8 engine good for around 500 horsepower, though a new KERS system developed by Magneti Marelli serves up a bit of additional thrust. Sounds like fun, but will it be good enough to tangle with the rest of the LMP1 class? We can't wait to find out. You can check out the Glickenhaus Ferrari P4/5 Competizione in the video below.

      That thing looks so right. Sounds right, too. I miss GT1 from the 1990s when they would sell a dozen of cars like these then take them racing.

          Well this thing used to be a street car, right?

          no, the P4/5 competitzione is a purposely built racecar based on the F430 scuderia, but he also owns a similar looking street car based on the Enzo, called the P4/5.

      Autoblog is incorrect, they are trying to get sponsors for to build an LMP1, but that car would be a different chassis and engine. Apparently they didn't actually read the whole LMP1 article before reporting on it...

      Why do YouTube videos have to feature "LOUD!" in the preview in TMZ tabloid style?

      Is it only for races or will get in production?
      • 2 Years Ago
      Cannot see it's faster than those 458s in the video
        • 2 Years Ago
        458s are probably faster than Enzos, stock for stock, and the P4/5 road car is basically an Enzo. The racer is probably the equivalent of an Enzo GT.

      Sounds great. But, LMP1, really? What are they smoking? Also, is it me or does that thing look porky?
      • 2 Years Ago
      I still don't think it's quite as fast as it looks or sounds, but I still love this car and the fact that it just keeps getting better.
