The name SCG003 name might be a mouthful, but its performance will be an earful, and its design is a sumptuous eyeful!
Welcome to the next chapter in hardcore performance. The ultimate in hypercar power and track pace – competing with exotica like the W Motors Lykan Hypersport, Pagani Huayra, Koenigsegg and Bugatti.
The 2016 Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003 is a duo of custom-designed race-winners — both on the track and on the street. The SCG003C stands for Competizione, while the SCG003S is for the stradale — or street.
Grand ambitions for this mid-engine, carbon-fiber masterpiece. A truly stunning design whose production reality and on-sale-now status are almost incomprehensibly exciting. An all-new hypercar that looks boss, is well-funded and well-engineered? And will also roar around the 24H of Nurburgring? YES!
The racecar is set to use a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine making 530 horsepower through an FIA-spec setup, using tech and aero from the LMP1 and LMP2 classes. The fact that you do not see Pagani, Bugatti or Koenigsegg entering their cars in a possible 24-hour race shows the bold bravery of the SCG vision.
Combining hypercar and LMP1 tech is a very cool mix — LaFerrari, P1 and 918 are all unable to actually race thanks to their hybrid components.
The road car is thought to run a twin-turbo V12 pushing out over 800-horsepower set to run a different tune of this HPD V6TT from the Honda Racing team. Most recently, this engine has powered the 2015 Acura TLX GT racer.
Ballpark at least $2.5-million for the Competizione racecar, and perhaps $3-million for the road-legal Stradale.
Glickenhaus says the road car will have around 600
horsepower and weigh just 1,100 kilograms (2,425 pounds) so use that as a guide. And how’s he going to prove the performance of the SCG003? Not by simply setting a Nürburgring lap time but racing around the arduous track for a full 24 hours!
At present, two racing examples and a single road car have been commissioned. Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is currently taking orders and has received interest from more than a dozen serious buyers. Glickenhaus has previously quoted a starting price of 2.1 million euros (approximately $2.35 million) for the SCG003S, with the SCG003C likely to cost an additional 750,000 to 1 million euros ($840k to $1.12 million).
