Ferrari P 4/5 Designed by Pininfarina

Ferrari P 4/5 Designed by Pininfarina at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

 

The Ferrari P 4/5, 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 feature.

 

Commissioned by New York Ferrari collector James Glickenhaus and built on the mechanicals of the exclusive Ferrari Enzo supercar, the P 4/5 is a unique one-off automobile that rekindles Pininfarina's storied tradition as the premier creator of the bespoke carrozzeria.

 

While the car's main influence is the immortal championship-winning Ferrari P 3/4 Le Mans racer of 1967, the thoroughly futuristic design draws equal inspiration from modern aerospace technology and Ferrari Formula 1 racing cars. The P 4/5's sensual yet technical design is tightly shrunk to its race-bred mechanicals. Regardless of 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 it's racing roots, the meter-tall P 4/5 has been finely tuned in Pininfarina's full scale moving belt wind tunnel, assuring superior aerodynamic performance.
