Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina is a one-off supercar commissioned
by American car collector James Glickenhaus.
The Ferrari P4/5 story began in 2005 after Glickenhaus purchased
one of the 399 Ferrari Enzo's built. Immediately after buying his
Enzo he took it to the Pininfarina styling house and requested
that they rebody the car using 1960s Ferrari prototypes as inspiration.
The P4/5 is built on an Enzo chassis
The Pininfarina design team headed by Ken Okuyama tried to provide
a truly modern 'retro' supercar using 21st century materials
and engineering with traditional and evocative details.
During the build process the Ferrari P4/5 underwent extensive
wind tunnel and real world road tests to ensure that the dynamic
abilities of the car remained intact.
“This project – comments Andrea Pininfarina, Pininfarina S.p.A.
Chairman and CEO - represents an exciting challenge, i.e. trying
to meet the Customer’s requests in the best way possible without
deteriorating the company’s approach based on stylishness and
For Pininfarina to transform the Enzo into the P4/5, more than
200 unique components were developed through constant interaction
between styling and design: from the bi-xenon lighting clusters
specifically designed with an innovative system of yellow and
white LEDs to the alloy wheels – 20-inch aluminum – milled from
the block up to and including the aluminum and special steel
The sleek lines of the P4/5, characterized by a soft muscular
touch, took shape on the body – made entirely of carbon fiber.
The tapered profile of the nose highlights both its aerodynamic
function and the car’s new look; the central body is dominated
by the single-shell windscreen, while the car is accessed via
two butterfly type doors. The rear features powerful sides with
the embedded teardrop type transparent rear window which also
acts as engine cover and from which ceramic-coated exhaust tips
peep out, as on racing cars of the Sixties.
The approximate cost of the Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfaina was $3,000,000
