Ferrari P4/5 Competizione on track
TG negotiates entry to the track where the racing version of a bespoke Enzo is being tested
Posted: 19 Apr 2011
The son of one of Wall Street's longest-surviving warriors, Seth Glickenhaus (now 97, still working), there's also a family art foundation which includes paintings by Picasso, Andy Warhol, and Edward Hopper. In his younger days, Jim worked as a film producer and director, specialising in violent B-movies that'll be familiar to anyone old enough to remember the explosion in video rental in the Eighties. He knew John Lennon. Now he's in the family finance firm.
And, boy, does he love his cars. As well as controversially reimagining that Enzo back in 2006, Glickenhaus also owns a 166 Spyder Corsa, the third Ferrari ever made and the oldest continually existing Ferrari. There's an ex-Mark Donohue/Roger Penske Can-Am-winning Lola T70 (road-legal, he's done about 40,000 miles in it), a Le Mans-contesting, ex-Donohue/Bruce McLaren 1967 Ford Mark IV, and lots of other absurdly precious, highly significant stuff.
