It might have lost two cylinders on the way to production, but the SCG004S will deliver 690 hp (up 40 hp than originally announced) in entry-level guise – and, if customers are not satisfied with that, even more.
Unlike the GT-R, which is offered exclusively with a paddle-shift dual-clutch transmission, the SCG004S will be available with a six-speed manual gearbox, while an auto ‘box will be an option.
Glickenhaus says he’s opted for the GT-R’s engine because it is lighter than the V8 and “practically bulletproof.” That’s probably why the SCG004S racing variant that will compete in the 2019 Nurburgring 24 Hours will also use a GT-R engine.
Testing of the SCG004S will commence in the coming months before customer examples are delivered before the end of the year. Prices start at $400,000 and Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus intends on producing up to 250 examples annually.
