Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus Looks To Win Le Mans With New 007 LMP1

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has previewed an assortment of new models over the past few months, but their latest creation is the most ambitious yet.

In a Facebook post, the company revealed renderings of the SCG 007 LMP1 which will eventually compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. SCG didn’t say much about the model, but noted “It’s been 50 years since a car built in America finished first overall at Le Mans. We aim to change that.”

The car will compete in the event thanks to the so-called hypercar rule which is slated to come into effect in 2020 or 2021. Since this hasn’t been set in stone, SCG noted the renderings are “based on what we think the new LMP1/GT1 rules may look like.” The company also noted, the design will evolve when we know more.

 

 

Performance specifications remained unconfirmed, but the company said the car will have a US-made engine and a hybrid system as the latter is a requirement. In response to a fan question, SCG also said the model will likely have a “Chevy based” powertrain but there’s no word on which engine the company is considering.

Since racing is expensive, SCG plans to fund their effort by producing 25 street-legal versions of the car. It remains unclear how different they will be from the racing variant, but the company said these models will cost around $1 million. SCG will also produce another 007 LMP1, besides the one they intend to run.

While a lot of details still need to be worked out, SCG said the 007 LMP1 “… is for America. For Briggs, Carol and Jim Hall. For all of us.”

    That thing looks amazing. Like something straight out of Ridge Racer. The colors and even the logo had me thinking this was a Kamata Angelus.
