Listen To Glickenhaus SCG 003 Racer Fire Up Ahead Of Nurburgring 24

On Thursday, James Glickenhaus shared a teaser video of his one-off SCG 003 racing car start up for the first time. It was only July when the venerable New York-based investment manager and car enthusiast publically announced his ambitious plan to build a road-going racing car from scratch in order to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Almost a decade ago, Glickenhaus stunned us with a one-off Ferrari P4/5 model by Pininfarina that was based on the mighty Ferrari Enzo. This time, Glickenhaus officially promoted himself from prolific car collector to a full-on car builder when his team Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) produced a bespoke carbon chassis from the ground up.

The SCG 003 race car will be motivated by a twin-turbocharged V6 engine produced by Honda. In production form, the Acura RLX-derived engine, codenamed J35Y4, produces 310hp and 272 lb.-ft. of torque.

Obviously, the Honda V6 engine will produce much more than that in race trim for the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus team. What’s more, a twin-turbocharged V12 engine will also be developed for the SCG 003 during road use.

According to Road & Track, James Glickenhaus intends to field the SCG 003 to race at the Nurburgring 24 Hour in May. Stay tuned and be sure to watch the sick cold start video below!
