With the endurance race season set to open its doors soon, the preparations from all competing teams are becoming more and more frequent, starting with James Glickenhaus and his one-off Ferrari P4/5 Competizione.

Over the past few months, the race car has undergone a series of testing sessions all over Europe with the latest happenings taking place in Franciarcorta, Italy. Even better, the test runs being done by touring car driver Fabrizio Giovanardi are taking place at nighttime.

The P4/5 Competizione is shaping up to be one of the most powerful one-off race cars in the world. What’s more impressive is that every part and detail of the car are all hand-made and while progress has been slow and steady in the making, the car is fixing to be a worthy contender in any race it competes.

Check out the videos of the P4/5 Competizione doing some nighttime test runs and tell just how unbelievably spectacular this race car is. More videos after the jump!

Yes I think so. Glickenhaus will probably be the one handling the Competizione during the actual race. But for a businessman, he does have a pretty good set of driving creds.

Is Glickenhaus going to be the one running the car during the race? Hope he does have the talent to make good use of the car’s capabilities during that time.

I do hope that this one actually performs well on the actual race. It will definitely be a waste of all that hype if this ends up not getting a good position.

The tests are definitely looking good for the Competizione. But I really doubt that the car would be one of the stand outs this coming season.
