James Glickenhaus’ Ferrari P4/5 Competizione just proved one more time has just proven yet again what a fantastic machine it is. According to Jalopnik, during the 24 Hours of Nürburgring qualifying round, the supercar lapped the famous Nurburgring in just 6:51. This makes it the fastest Ferrari ever around the Nurburgring, smashing the previous record of 6:58.16 held by the Ferrari 599XX. All Glickenhaus had to say about this impressive result was: "I think it’s pretty cool!" However, he did invite Ferrari to come and challenge their supercar.

As most people already know, the Ferrari P4/5 Competizione was built on a Ferrari 430 Scuderia and, for this year’s 24 hours of Nürburgring, combined a hybrid drive system with a 4.0L V8 engine. This new hybrid system is very similar to the KERS system used in Formula 1 cars and added an extra 80 HP to the car’s total output, leaving it with an impressive 563 HP.

It’s already a great achievement for itself; next time, I hope to see it become the fastest car in the industry.

It should definitely try to beat cars of other companies too.

I’ll wait for the day that the title gets replaced; “Ferrari” to “supercar”.

But is still isn’t the fastest car of all time, right? I’d be more astounded if it’s the record-holder of that!

Why has it not been mentioned as the fastest CAR ever? Was there any car that is speedier than this?

Oh, therefore, a hybrid Ferrari car has conquered Nurburgring! It’s not fully a surprise anyhow, since we know Ferrari is always able to produce dynamically-inclined supercars. This is even dual-powered so there’s definitely an advantage!
