Ferrari P4

Finally, I can show you the photographs of this beautiful beast! I’ve said it before, but I really did have such fun hanging out with this gang over the shoot. More information to follow!

Edit: I have more information to add to this!  Despite being a replica, the car externally is as original as you could get it, made totally from scratch however, the gearbox is a ZF gearbox. The makers of this beast are RM Wilson Engineering of Leicestershire, England (www.rmwilsonengineering.co.uk) who have been in the trade for over 45 years. They have made their own fuel injection system for it and also made their own dry sump for it. The engine is a 365 GT engine and produces more bhp than the original. I hope this helps give you a little more of an insight!

  1. Congratulations, incredible pictures, many thanks. The P4 was and is still one of the best looking cars, a Monument…

  3. Beautiful photography! Of course, the car is a fake/replica, but this takes nothing away from your photos. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Beautiful pictures. Where can i read more about that particular car? I know it is not the genuine P4 but a very nice repro and would love to find out who built it.

    1. Thanks! Currently there aren’t any articles on this particular P4 replica although, I’m hoping that will change soon! But I will give you all of the info I can: The car externally is as original as you could get it, made from scratch. However, the gearbox is a ZF gearbox. The makers of this beast are RM Wilson Engineering of Leicestershire, England (www.rmwilsonengineering.co.uk) who have been in the trade for over 45 years. They have made their own fuel injection system for it and also made their own dry sump for it. The engine is a 360 GT engine and produces more BHP than the original. I hope this helps give you a little more of an insight!

  5. Amy they are some stunning photographs of probably the most beautiful car of all time. Saw the car at Bob’s 4/5 year ago before the engine went in and he spent several hours showing a group of us from the P4 replica group around the car and the workmanship is truly stunning excellent work Bob

  6. Amy – I absolutely love your collection of P4 images. For a while I was following a guy online who was making one, sadly he was a long way away so it was impossible for me to travel to capture each stage. Then to my horror, about three months ago, he sold the project half way through. I was so disappointed and the photographs of the project were too technical to be of any interest. They didn’t capture the human portrait aspect which yours do. The car is of course stunning and you were lucky to get up close. I feel embarrassed to be such a classic male victim of the fast red sports car, to be honest I’m really not that keen on most…just the old P4 with it’s beautiful curves. Well done – hope you got to go for a ride in it? All best, Gideon. http://www.gideonhart.com

    1. Gideon – thank you so much for your comment! What a shame to hear that you couldn’t see your P4 finished! But you’re right, they are beautiful! And I didn’t get a ride in it, no. But I did get to steer it onto the ramps which was good enough for me!

    1. Thanks so much! It’s a mixture of working with RAW images, altering curves and a couple of colour adjustments but these images are pretty close to the original shots!
