Jim’ll fix it

Car collector extraordinaire Glickenhaus to build Ferrari P4/5 race car?

P4/5 Competizione

Over in the States, there's a bloke we like very much. His name's Jim Glickenhaus and he's the man behind the borderline-pornographic Ferrari P4/5 (remember that?). It was based on an Enzo but looked like a coachbuilt racer from the Sixties.
Since we last heard from him, our man Jim has been dreaming. And this time he’s come up with a racing version, the P4/5 Competizione, rendered by Dutch designer Michiel van den Brink. According to Jim's chitchat on a Ferrari fans forum, Glickenhaus is contemplating building one for the Nurburgring 24-hour race next May, though nothing is completely confirmed.

He also suggested it will only share visual similarities with the road car, and be based on something other than an Enzo. But it will be a Ferrari. So the question is, what will it be? Our money's going on a 458 Italia...
