A Look Inside one of the Most Incredible Garages on the Planet [Video]
Some folks get to have all the fun. When you see a supercar going by, you might wonder if that is the driver’s only car, and if he has to live in a small place to afford it, or if he is an insanely wealthy individual and this is just one of a large collection of cars. When it comes to James Glickenhaus, it is most certainly the latter.
The wealthy investment professional has a collection of cars that exist only as a wish list to most people. He owns the oldest Ferrari that still exists and the Ford GT40 driven by Bruce McLaren, and dozens of other stunning examples of automotive royalty. Oh, and he even had a couple of Ferraris built specifically for him by design house Pininfarina.
Thankfully, Fast Lane Daily was there to capture the essence of one of the most prolific collectors out there:
The Ferrari P4/5 is probably his crowning achievement as an automotive enthusiast. It is a modern interpretation of the 1967 Ferrari 330 P3/4. The road version that was created first has over 200 original parts, but takes much of the drivetrain and other mechanicals from the Enzo Ferrari. Just think about that- the man used an Enzo as a donor car for his project.
Glickenhaus later had a racing version created, called the P4/5 Competizione. That car was based on the Ferrari 430 Scuderia, and was actually built to FIA GT2 standards. Despite the Ferrari name, the company officially distanced itself from the project, as it often does. Apparently they like to be awesome on their own, and don't like people stealing their spotlight.
