SCG Invites Ferrari, Porsche Et Al. On Baja Boot’s New York To Paris Journey

At the beginning of the year, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) announced that it had started developing a modern variant of the Baja Boot. Now, the company took to Facebook to announce that the first order for a Baja Version of the brand’s Boot has been placed and that the transcontinental trip will begin in 2020.

As SCG stated in its post, the first of five Baja Editions (in red below) of the Boot has already been spoken for. The Baja variant of the off-roader will be able to participate in the Baja 1000, as well as the Dakar Rally, which Peugeot has dominated in the past few years. As SCG revealed, the Baja Editions will all be 2019 model years and cost $250,000 for the two-door variant and $275k for the four-door.

In another Facebook post, SCG invited other automakers, including Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, Land Rover and Ford to accompany it on a transcontinental journey that will start in New York and end in Paris. The trip will start in the summer of 2020 and see SCG, and any other automakers that want to join, travel amphibiously “across the Bering Sea, down the Road of Bones, across the Trans Siberian Highway through Beijing, Moscow, St. Petersburg and then on to Paris.”

It’s an ambitious plan that SCG has obviously thought about a lot, as it also released a bunch of new photos of its Boots in various terrains. The amphibious part of the trip is the most challenging and the renderings make it look like SCG will tackle that part of the journey with a simple approach: a couple of canoes and outboard engines.

In addition to all of this, it also has plans to set a new altitude record with the Boot. The off-roader will have to travel 21,942 feet up the Ojos del Salado volcano in the Andes Mountains if it wants to set a new record.

SCG has clearly come a long way from building bespoke supercars that were after Nurburgring lap records.

    “……….travel amphibiously “across the Bering Sea, down the Road of Bones, across the Trans Siberian Highway through Beijing, Moscow, St. Petersburg and then on to Paris.”

    Sounds like something Top Gear would do.

    • Oh well and then create all sorts of drama or make the other presenter used weird form of transportation.

  • I love this project, like as if it’s a way for them to relax while building the endurance car.

    Keep it up Mr. Glickenhaus.

    Or you could have an-all new 2018 Jeep Wrangler with all the kit you could ever dream in the U.S. for less than a $100k. Amd have enough left over to buy a Mercedes AMG S63 to take the lady out to a fine dinner.

  • COOL.
