This may look like James Glickenhaus’ famed endurance racer, but it’s actually the road-going SCG 003S variant, which will debut at next year’s Geneva Motor Show.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) has revealed new images of the upcoming vehicle, stating that SCG003S promises to be the fastest-cornering car on sale, thanks to its advanced aerodynamic tech that will help it generate more than 2Gs through corners.
Even though the “S” in its name stands for “Stradale”, the SCG003S is a direct descendant of the car that won the Nurburgring 24-hour race (in its class), so it’s far from being a tamed machine. To give you an idea what Glickenhaus is on about, the Koenigsegg One:1 pulled a maximum 1.72 G’s at 180km/h (112 mph) in one of Suzuka’s corners.
Glickenhaus’ passion for the old Italian racing car culture becomes evident when you take a closer look at his business. His team is actually a “Scuderia”, the cars raced by SCG are “Competizione” variants, and he even raced a one-off, coachbuild P4/5 by Pininfarina.
Even the new SCG003S will respect traditions, as it will be hand-built in Italy by Manifattura Automobili Torino, using extensive carbon-fiber. Moreover, the automobile will draw its might from a 4.4-litre, twin turbo engine, capable of boasting 750 hp – enough to push it beyond 350 km/h (217 mph) and from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than three seconds.
“It’s the culmination of a long-held dream to finally see our amazing race car born again as a road car, using all the know-how we have taken from competing in international races and putting it onto the road. This will be a collectable car like no other, capturing the spirit of the road racers that have defined automotive history during the heyday of grand touring,” said Glickenhaus.
Naturally, a high degree of customization and personalization will be available for the car, which will be produced in limited numbers form the middle of next year.
