Bloomberg recently sat down with James Glickenhaus as part of its Bloomberg Pursuits series. The 15-minute segment traces Glickenhaus' progression from movie director to money manager and finally to Ferrari collector and creator of the P4/5 Competizione. With plenty of interview footage with Glickenhaus himself, as well as a good long look at the man's $20 million car collection and a segment on his team's efforts at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring, the spot is a comprehensive look at not only Glickehaus but the P4/5 as well.

Glickenhaus takes some time to speak about his interactions with Ferrari, especially over using the company's name, and the sorts of ludicrous offers he's had for the road-worthy P4/5. As it turns out, one member of the Saudi royal family offered Glickenhaus a whopping $40 million for the car. He said no. You can check out the video below for a closer look at the segment.

      Love how every guy in the video is breaking their neck to look at the car. Guy on the bike at the end looks like he is gonna crash!

      Strange. If he's so passionate about cars and the events around the P4/5, then why the "I'm Laura Linney, and I'm dead inside"-facial expression? -Was he about to ritually-sacrifice Trish Regan???

        There is absolutely nothing wrong with putting intelligence to work, however there is something very wrong with criticizing those who do. You sir, are a face of what is wrong with the world, another faceless person behind a keyboard criticizing someone for going out there, working hard, and achieving something for himself. Get out there and start working on acieving your own success, it will help you feel better about other people.

          I second this comment. I hate when people get angry at other's success.

        Envy and bitterness are not attractive emotions (and comparing him to Adolf is particularly noxious)

        I'm afraid I agree with Jorge, except maybe the super smart part. That is NOT necessary to make movies (check his filmography, and you'll see they're shitty B movies) but seed money is, "Dad? Do I get the money or not?" Then he falls back to the easy money, Wall St. where money begets more money, the drain of the US economy. Is he a car guy? Maybe more than you and I if you gauge his creds with the fame and quality of the cars he has. But this was a Bloomberg program, produced for the rich, like Forbes is a magazine for the rich (check me). When he tells the reporter he has 20M invested in the restoration of the cars, he's not including the cars initial purchase, just paying other people stupid amounts of money to restore and upgrade his cars (and build a scratch car of course.) But Wall St. set isn't necessarily in touch enough with the value of money to get that some of those cars in his collection are worth several million alone. Not the reporter's fault, but to this crowd, it's all just money. Don't sweat it. We'll make more. Re: P 4/5 it's not Pininfarina's prettiest work, but I can respect that it was fun to build. Sad though his attitude that he didn't really care if Ferrari didn't want him to do it, because, he's got money, so eff everyone else. Oh and Jim, invest in a razor. Then you won't look like you didn't care enough to shave when you're being interviewed for TV. Seinfeld and Leno are both car guys, but one collects them like Matchbox cars, and the other busts his knuckles on them and seems to be doing his best to share the love. I think Jim looks like he's somewhere in between. I'd hope a piece produced by a car show would be able to really capture his mechanical knowledge better, and make him look less like 1%er blows dad's fortune on a egotistical Ferrari clone.

      Great video. Excellent insight into Glickenhaus' character. I sincerely appreciate that he's a car guy who just happens to be well to do. Many thanks to him for adding to the automobile past, present and undoubtedly future.

        After the success of Build-a-Bear workshops in malls, JIm will be opening a chain of 'Build Your Own Ferrari' stores.

      The guy has a creepy facial expression, but his outlook on his collection and cars in general are pretty awesome.
