The good blokes at Jalopnik got in touch with gearhead/horror pic director Jim Glickenhaus about the ongoing development of his new Ferrari P4/5 Competizione. The car, seen in this latest rendering, will use the same V8 engine and suspension as the Ferrari F430 GT2 ALMS race car.
At the same time, it will share a similar design as Glickenhaus' unique Ferrari Enzo P4/5, built by Pininfarina, utilizing a modified body from the F430 Scuderia. The P4/5 Competizione will debut in the 2011 24 Hours Nürburgring race, possibly in the experimental classification. That could mean that the car will be pitted against the Porsche 918 Spyder and/or the 911 Hybrid, according to Jalopnik.
After the race, the car will be converted to a street legal machine, just like the original P4/5. The original used 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels, updated headlight clusters, LEDs, and 200 other unique parts.
Currently, the 2011 Nürburgring 24 Hours is scheduled for June 25-26.
