2006 Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina

Finally, the world has real pictures of the newest Ferrari supercar. Up until five minutes ago, there was only a myriad of concept sketches, photoshops and images of wooden bucks to go by, so we held this feature back until the definitive articles arrived.
What these images reveal are a seriously dedicated project by James Glickenhaus and Pininfarina to come up with a one-off Ferrari that is both exotic and usable. Included are behind the scenes shots and one in particular that makes the impressive Pininfarina wind tunnel look better than it ever has.
For anyone wanting to catch a glimpse of the Ferrari P4/5 in person, it will make a debut at the Pebble Beach Concours in a few weeks and also be revealed to the international press at the Paris Motor Show.

2006 Pebble Beach Concours

Pininfarina Ferrari P4/5

The Ferrari P4/5, designed and built by Pininfarina’s Special Projects Division, pays homage to Ferrari’s great sports racing prototypes while simultaneously glancing ahead toward the marque’s boundless future.

Commissioned by New York Ferrari collector James Glickenhaus and built on the mechanicals of the exclusive Ferrari Enzo supercar, the P4/5 is a unique one-off automobile that rekindles Pininfarina’s storied tradition as the premier creator of bespoke carrozzeria.

While the car’s main influence is the immortal championship-winning Ferrari P3/4 Le Mans racer of 1967, the thoroughly futuristic design draws equal inspiration from modern aerospace technology and Ferrari Formula 1 racing cars. The P4/5’s sensual yet technical design is tightly shrunk to its race-bred mechanicals. Regardless of the viewing angle, the car’s muscular converging fenders seem to leap forward, tightly hugging the unique 20-inch wheel-and-tire package and giving the car a planted and solid stance. Staying true to its racing roots, the meter-tall P4/5 has been finely tuned in Pininfarina’s full scale moving belt wind tunnel, assuring superior aerodynamic performance.
