When the Ferrari P4/5 Competizione was first revealed to the world decked out in full carbon fiber, there was hardly any doubt in anyone’s minds that James Glickenhaus had a real winner with the bespoke Ferrari.

And now the P4/5 Competizione has set a new record, clocking in the fastest lap time by a Ferrari model at the Nürburgring during a qualifying session at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring. With a lap time of 6:51, the Competizione bested the Ferrari FXX’s time of 6:58.16, which is impressive considering the FXX is a special-order race car as well.

Of course this isn’t an apples to apples comparison considering the FXX did it in arguably more ideal conditions. But it’s hard to argue against what Glickenhaus and his team have done in building the F430-based Competizione into one hell-bending, track machine.

And of course Glickenhaus was proud to see all his hard work come to fruition. As for the lap time? He only had one thing to say: “If Ferrari wants to come here and challenge it…”

We’re excited to see how the Competizione does in in the 24 Hour race.
