The track-focused SCG 003CS from Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is one the fastest hypercars present at this year’s New York Auto Show, and it’s powered by a 4.4-liter twin turbo BMW engine with some 700 RWHP.
According to the carmaker’s Twitter feed, this SCG 003CS was driven to the NYC event instead of arriving there in the back of a transport truck, which means that a bunch of lucky commuters got to see it out on the road during its journey.
The 003CS is road-legal in 49 states (at least) and features a carbon fiber chassis, body and subframes, a paddle shift Cima gearbox, Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, Forgeline centerlock wheels and driver adjustable shocks with different settings for road and track. It also comes with race-inspired side mirrors with built-in side cameras and dashboard side mirror screens, plus driver-operated front and rear lifters to go with the hardcore CS bits, like the massive rear wing.
It also generates 2,200 lbs (998 kg) of net down force and 2G of mechanical grip on road tires. Total weight? Roughly 2,600 lbs (1,179 kg) – so you get a very nice power-to-weight ratio.
The BMW-sourced power unit allows you to max out in excess of 230 mph (370 km/h) and hit 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill in under 3 seconds, making this one of the fastest-accelerating cars in the world.
