We recently reported that his uber-richness, James Glickenhaus, had confirmed that he and several partners were going to build P4/5 Competizione race car to enter in endurance racing events.

The P4/5 name comes from the P4/5 vehicle that was custom built for Glickenhaus by Ferrari design house Pininfarina, based on an Enzo and inspired by the Ferrari P 3/4 race car.

Initially it was reported that this race car would be built on a Ferrari 612 chassis and then the obvious connection was made with an Enzo underpinning the race car. Glickenhaus has, however, confirmed that the race car will be based Ferrari chassis, but use a V8 – leading us to speculate that a 458 Italia would be a nice place to start.

The plan is to enter the car at the Nürburging 24 hour race next year, in a class that allows one-off vehicles. This would not be a homolgated race car, however, and wouldn’t be able to run in other series, whether FIA GT3 or the American Le Mans Series.
