Glickenhaus Ferrari P4/5Enlarge Photo
For the first time ever, car collector James Glickenhaus will present both the road-going Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina and the Ferrari P4/5 Competizione racing version in the same place, in this case the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August.
For those unfamiliar with the P4/5 by Pininfarina, it is a one-off supercar whose body was designed by Pininfarina and chassis borrowed from a Ferrari Enzo. It was first shown in 2006 and has since remained in the hands of Glickenhaus.
Soon after receiving it, Glickenhaus got the idea of racing the car but instead of risking the one-off he chose to build a separate racing version, the P4/5 Competizione, based on the bones of a Ferrari F430 Scuderia.
The P4/5 Competizione was built in 2011 to contest the Nürburgring 24 Hours under the newly formed Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus team, where it finished second in class. In 2012, it was modified with a Kinetic Energy Recovery System and contested the Nürburgring 24 Hours again, where it finished first in class.
Both of Glickenhaus’ unique Ferraris will be on display at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering and will be joined by a collection of some of the world’s rarest Ferraris including the first-ever road-going Prancing Horse, the restored and somewhat controversial 125 S.
On top of this, a collection of rare Porsches and Aston Martins will also be present. Porsche, of course, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its 911 sports car this year while Aston Martin is celebrating its own centenary.
The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering kicks off on August 16 and is just one of the events coinciding with the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Tickets to the event are $550 per person ($100 for children 12 and under), while the fee for showing a vehicle is $550 per car and includes two tickets to the event.
