Exclusivity comes at a price
What do you do when you’re a bazillionare magnate and can’t find a Ferrari which suits you. You have the Italians create one just the way you like it!
In 2006, film director James Glickenhaus purchased an Enzo and decided that he wanted to use its base to replicate a 1960s Ferrari 330 P3/4 race car which he owns (see video). He started the project with Pininfarina, the Italian design firm, and eventually Ferrari found out and gave him their blessing to continue with the project and officially brand it as a one-off model.
Fast forward a few years, and another one-off Ferrari is about to hit the road thanks to another American with a ton of money. Say hello to the Ferrari P540 Superfast Aperta.
