Track-only and road-going versions of SCG 003 to be offered with twin-turbo V6 and V12 engines
3 March 2015

American finance magnate and bespoke supercar maker James Glickenhaus has revealed the SCG 003 racing car at the Geneva motor show.

Standing for Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, the SCG 003 will be the tycoon’s third project, with the racing car already confirmed to compete at this year’s Nürburgring 24 Hours endurance race in May.

Sources suggest the Le Mans prototype look-alike will be offered in multiple states of tune. The racing version will be powered by a Honda motorsport-derived 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6, producing 530bhp at 6800rpm and 516lb ft of torque at 4500rpm.

The SCG 003 racer is reported to weigh 1350kg with a 49:51 weight distribution split and is shod with 18in alloy wheels. Buyers of the road-going version will be offered a choice of engines up to a twin-turbocharged V12 motor. Power and performance figures are yet to be released for the road-going versions.

Glickenhaus describes the 003 project as adopting a ‘less is more’ philosophy, with the car built around SCG’s own carbonfibre monocoque chassis and featuring three integrated wings. The aim is for similar dimensions to those of a Ferrari Dino Competizione.

According to SCG, pricing for the 003 kicks off at £1.6 million for the road car, with the racing version adding a £750,000 premium.

Glickenhaus’s previous creations include converting a 1967 Lola T70 Can Am racer into a road-going supercar, and the outrageous Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina, commissioned by Glickenhaus himself at a cost of £2.1 million.

...a 1967 Lola racer into a road-going supercar," If he can do that for £3,500 he has a guaranteed sale with me!
  • If you want to know about a car, read a forum dedicated to it; that's a real 'long term test' . No manufacturer's warranty, no fleet managers servicing deals, no journalist's name to oil the wheels...

GM, Ford, and the formidable Hemi, from Chrysler have competent powerplants, that could have easily done this car justice- Yet another American selling out! They only spew patriotism when criticising their president.......

I agree, why fit a highly efficient, modern engine from one of the great engine producers, when you could instead use half a ton of Detroit's finest pig iron.

This is good,it isn't way over the top looking compared to say Gumpert or Pagani or indeed Koenigsigg for that matter.
