Revisiting the Ferrari P4/5, The Ultimate Modern Dream Car

By Jacopo Villa / 24 Jun 2015 / 3 Comments Read More

The Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina is the ultimate modern dream car. It is something born out of pure technical ingenuity, creativity, and of course, passion. It is more than just a re-bodied Ferrari Enzo; it’s a completely new car with unique performance and design. Almost 10 years after its unveiling at the 2006 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, it still looks like it came, yesterday, from outer space.

Sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll are just a few of the things that indelibly define the ’60s. But while that decade was experiencing profound social and political change, it was also a very memorable time for motorsports as another leap forward was made in car design—and speed.

In the world of classic cars, Ferrari sits at the top. From there—depending on who you ask, of course, the waters get murky. If you’re interested in cars that have changed the world, however, Ferrari may not be the top marque. For Greg Long, the search and capture of interesting cars sort of runs in the family, and there were so many stories to tell that only a novel would do. Here are three engaging excerpts from “Found”.

Say “Ferrari” to most people and their eyes will sparkle with an image of a red sports car roaring through the scenery. Now, ask the same person where the first Ferrari debuted and the answer will likely be one of the big names—Monza, Spa-Francorchamps, the Nürburgring—and he’d be wrong.

Unless you’re Jay Leno, you just can’t buy every car you covet, nor can you keep every car that comes into your possession. Sometimes, the lack of time, money, or space (or all three) conspire such that a car cannot be purchased, or has to be sold. Sometimes, they just get away...

In the annals of automotive design, the 1970s is something less than a highlight. In the United States, we had a decade of cars that are now more valuable for their strength in a demolition derby than for their aesthetic or performance attributes. In Europe and Japan, however, a few exceptions to this decade of mediocrity managed to emerge, among them the the Lancia Stratos, the "Kenmeri" Nissan Skyline, and the Porsche 2.7 RS.

I started at Petrolicious as the editor about fourteen months ago and today I’m wrapping it up. I feel extraordinarily lucky to have held this position mostly because it allowed me the opportunity to have a dialogue with a broad, diverse audience that despite many geographic and cultural differences, are really just like me—hard-core classic car guys (and girls)...

It's been a while since we first shared Holger Schubert's Ferrari 512 BBi, but as it's the new year, we wanted to reflect on some of our favorite stories. So we've created a Petrolicious infographic that is chock full of interesting tidbits about the iconic car. For instance, did you know that only 387 of the first-generation 365BBs were ever built?

At both Petrolicious: Drive Tastefully events, the wide range of cars was astounding. At Drive Tastefully: Malibu, James Chen’s white-on-white Lamborghini Countach got me wondering who the first owner might have been. Was he (or she) a Lamborghini enthusiast trading up or perhaps a Miami drug lord who craved the attention and prestige a scissor-door Lamborghini would bring?

Barn finds are the ultimate in automotive mythology. It is the equivalent of sitting in a tavern sometime in the seventeenth century and being handed a map by a rushed, shadowy figure. Should you spend days and weeks and months chasing buried treasure? We’ve all heard stories of barn finds: Bugattis sunken in lakes to avoid taxes, neglected racecars in sheds around the world...
