Ferrari P4/5 Competizione LOUD Sound!
I have filmed James Glickenhaus' Ferrari P4/5 Competizione in a cold and
foggy day on the Franciacorta racetrack during some track tests. This
racecar is a custom one-off based on the Ferrari 430 Scuderia with F430 GT2
engine, it has been built to compete in the 2011 Nurburgring 24h race. The
video shows the Competizione being pushed on the track with many
accelerations, fly bys and revs, so turn up the speakers!
