Wealthy businessman and huge Ferrari officianado Jim Glickenhaus has confirmed a successor to to his one-off P4/5 supercar (the car shown in the picture below) is in the pipelines.

Set to be built by Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (the racing team which campaigned the P4/5 Competizione), the new car has been christened the P 33, which is perhaps a nod to the mid-engined Alfa Romeo 33 supercar from the 1960s.

Technical details are scarce at this moment in time, but we do know the P 33 will be propelled by a twin-turbo V6 of sorts, with an expected maximum power output of 500bhp.

The other snippets of confirmed information are, though vague, also interesting: the P 33 will almost certainly be underpinned by a carbon tub of some form, the car's bodywork is expected to feature clever aerodynamic components and the target curb weight is in the region of 700-800kg.

Glickenhaus has also confirmed his intentions to make the P 33 cross transferable to the road and the track, where the adjustments to make the car capable on the circuit don't compromise its ability on the public road, and vice versa.

Which does suggest there'll be a competition version that'll carry on from where the P4/5 Competizione will eventually leave off.

The P 33 is expected to be revealed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and – whilst a limited production run is on the cards – it's likely this supercar project will result in the P 33 being a one-off for Jim Glickenhaus' personal use.
