Designer Pininfarina will be using LEDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors for the headlights on the Ferrari P4/5. The P4/5 began as a Ferrari Enzo and ended up as a one-of-a-kind retro racing car. Each headlight has daytime running lights made up of 15 lighting clusters that follow the car's contours.
