Ferrari P4/5 Competizione: The Work In Progress Renderings

Image

Jim Glickenhaus is constructing a P4/5 Competizione to contest the 24 Hours Of Nürburgring. there's more coverage on Jalonik and, I assume, the internets. but for now I'm going to step outside and have a smoke.
damn.... :drool:

build report with photos
Jalopnik wrote:Glickenhaus's car, dubbed the Competizione, is being constructed on the chassis of a brand-new F430 Scuderia. It will incorporate the suspension and drivetrain of the F430 GT2 car seen here and wear a modified version of the body found on the original P4/5. Glickenhaus sent us these images this afternoon; we're not quite sure what they depict, but if we had to guess, we'd say something related to measurements and expensive labor.

Oh, one more thing: Wondering why a car bound for the racetrack is being built from a street machine and a purpose-built racer, instead of just the racer? It's because, once the car is finished, Glickenhaus wants to make the whole shebang street-legal. Which is a hundred kinds of excellent.

Side note: When was the last time you saw a doorless F430 Scuderia hung from the ceiling? Also, bare-assed flat-crank V-8 with enormous airbox: So good.

Ferrari P4/5 Competizione: First Look
As we reported earlier, the racing version of Jim Glickenhaus's wicked Ferrari P4/5 is currently under construction and set to compete in next year's 24-hours of the Nürburgring. Glickenhaus recently emailed us this rendering and a few key details.

If you've been following our exclusive coverage, you're probably aware that Glickenhaus's car, dubbed the Competizione, will incorporate the suspension and V-8 drivetrain of an F430 GT2 ALMS racing car under bodywork like that of his one-off, Pininfarina-built Ferrari Enzo. Because he plans to make it street-legal following the Nürburgring race, it's being built on the modified structure of an F430 Scuderia.

We don't know much about the current state of the project other than the fact that it appears to be progressing as planned, and that hanging an F430 from the ceiling is the best way to place it on a calibrated surface plate for measurement. If gossip is to be believed, the FIA has classed the P4/5 in the same experimental competition grouping as Porsche's upcoming 918 Spyder (?!) and current 911 Hybrid. Cue applause.
