First Renderings of The P4/5 Competizione Revealed
Jim Glickenhaus's wicked Ferrari P4/5 race car is currently under construction and set to compete in next year's 24-hours of the Nürburgring. The team behind the Ferrari P4/5 Competizione recently revealed renderings of how they expect the finished car to look.
Glickenhaus's car, dubbed the Competizione, will incorporate the suspension and V-8 drivetrain of an F430 GT2 racing car. Because he plans to make it street-legal following the Nürburgring race, it's being built on the modified structure of a 430 Scuderia. Not much more is known about the current state of the project other than the fact that it appears to be progressing as planned, and that hanging a Scuderia 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 group as Porsche's upcoming 918 Spyder and current 911 Hybrid.
