James Glickenhaus Custom Ferrari Sets Ring Record, Has Better Life than Yours
James Glickenhaus’ life > your life. The movie director-turned finance professional has more money than god, and spends it in ways that you didn’t know you could spend it. Let’s put it this way, he has enough money to build custom Ferraris, blessed by the Italian automaker.
An avid car collector and enthusiast, Glickenhaus commissioned famed Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina to build the P4/5 as homage to Ferrari’s glorious LeMans racers from the late 60’s. Glickenhaus was not content- he wanted a true racing version of Ferrari 430-based custom ride. Built from the ground-up as a separate car from the roadgoing P4/5, the P4/5 Competizione is a fast-as-hell carbon fiber toy that none of Glickenhaus’s super-wealthy friends possess. How fast is it? The P4/5 Competizione just became the fastest Ferrari to go ‘round Germany’s famed Nurburgring race track. The P4/5 dispatched “Green Hell” in just 6:51- faster than the 6:58.16 put up by the Ferrari 599XX.
So to recap. Man makes insane sum of money. Man builds custom Ferrari. Custom Ferrari sets track record. Man’s hobby car is faster than any other Ferrari. Now you know.
