The name SCG003 name might be a mouthful, but its performance will be an earful, and its design is a sumptuous eyeful!
Welcome to the next chapter in hardcore performance. The ultimate in hypercar power and track pace – competing with exotica like the W Motors Lykan Hypersport, Pagani Huayra, Koenigsegg and Bugatti.
The 2016 Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003 is a duo of custom-designed race-winners — both on the track and on the street. The SCG003C stands for Competizione, while the SCG003S is for the stradale — or street.
Grand ambitions for this mid-engine, carbon-fiber masterpiece. A truly stunning design whose production reality and on-sale-now status are almost incomprehensibly exciting. An all-new hypercar that looks boss, is well-funded and well-engineered? And will also roar around the 24H of Nurburgring? YES!
The racecar is set to use a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine making 530 horsepower through an FIA-spec setup, using tech and aero from the LMP1 and LMP2 classes. The fact that you do not see Pagani, Bugatti or Koenigsegg entering their cars in a possible 24-hour race shows the bold bravery of the SCG vision.
Combining hypercar and LMP1 tech is a very cool mix — LaFerrari, P1 and 918 are all unable to actually race thanks to their hybrid components.
The road car is
thought to run a twin-turbo V12 pushing out over 800-horsepower set to run a different tune of this HPD V6TT from the Honda Racing team. Most recently, this engine has powered the 2015 Acura TLX GT racer.
DOOR DEMO SNIPPET
Ballpark at least $2.5-million for the Competizione racecar, and perhaps $3-million for the road-legal Stradale.
Glickenhaus is aiming for deliveries by the end of 2015, and also plans a Manhattan street drive shortly afterward. We are thrilled to learn these details alongside you. Not only will one of Glickenhaus’s creations be available to buy versus just a one-off, but the SCG003 is coming SOON!
The C is available to purchase now, with deliveries in a few months time. The Stradale street car will open order books in late Summer. On the Stradale, we’d generally shoot for a delivery to you by March or so of 2016 if ordered today. Why? New vehicles can have teething troubles, and hypercars are the most complex of all.
THE COMPLETELY BESPOKE SCG003
ALL-NEW RACE TUB and CHASSIS and BODY
The design is a fascinating exterior swirl of wings, ducts and shrouds. The gorgeous way the fenders wrap the wheels in free-standing pods is like something out of a designer’s dream.
The vague similarity with the Enzo is not a platform share. This is not a reskin, keeping Enzo glass and doors, as we thought at first. SCG003 is all-new.
The very Italian feel to the design is thanks to the lead stylists coming from Pininfarina.
The fact that Glickenhaus’s previous platform for the P4/5 was a Ferrari Enzo can confuse you. This SCG003 is all-new from the center-lock wheels upward. Check out the deconstructed chassis animation below to see beneath this sensual shell.

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus together with GranStudio and Paolo Garella is happy to announce the unveiling of its latest road and race cars SCG003C (Competizione) SCG003S (Stradale)
The Scuderia will unveil its SCG003 at the Geneva Motorshow that will open to the public on March 5th. On its stand the team will present one of the two race cars that the team is preparing for racing and the Stradale version that will be ready for delivery at the end of the year, and that, soon thereafter, Jim will drive on the streets of New York.
SCG003 is a completely new GT, inspired by the latest design and technologies developed in the LMP1/LMP2 series. The surfaces of the car have been shaped by the combined work of the talented styling team from Granstudio led by Lowie Vermeersch and Goran Popovic, together with the aerodynamic team of a young group of engineers from Podium Engineering supported by Paolo Catone the father of many successful sport racing cars.
The all carbon fiber structure has been designed to achieve maximum rigidity and flexibility in packaging, ease of maintenance and safety. The rear carbon fiber frame holds the suspension pick-up points and can be easily exchanged to allow the use of different engines on the same platform. The Hewland gearbox, with paddle shift, is a strong and reliable unit coupled, in the race version, with a V6 3,5L TT developed by Autotecnica Motori and derived from the HPD Honda V6 engine. The road version will have a V6TT engine that the team is specifically developing.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus hopes to offer to a select group of enthusiasts the opportunity to drive a true race car developed for the most challenging GT endurance race in the world, the 24H of the Nurburgring.
Over the years modern supercars have challenged the lap time on the Nordschleife as an important indicator of performance and speed, SCG003 takes this challenge and extends it to racing the entire 24Hours of the Nurburgring.
With minimal differences between the road and the race versions, SCG003 promises to deliver the experience of a modern, easy to drive race car, with down-force and engine torque that are unknown in the supercar world.
The BOP rules will balance the car’s performance during the race, but the car’s true potential will be revealed to the final owner with sensations and emotions that only real race cars can give. Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is developing a racing program that will enable the owners to race their cars throughout the world.
The race version of SCG003 can be easily owner converted to a road version should an owner so desire.
A very small team of young and motivated designers, engineers, mechanics, craftsmen and very experienced friends, have worked under the direction of Paolo Garella, Program Director for the SCG003 Project. Inspired by strategic vision of Jim, the team has set the fundamental project guidelines and performance targets, that during the past 18 month of the project development have kept the team focused on its final objective: to deliver a car that could be as iconic as P4/5 and as new and innovative as the product of a major car manufacturer.
The result of this effort is SCG003C/S a race/road car that will be proven at the Nurburgring 24H, a car that will drive on the street of New York, a car that promises emotions and unique experiences.
SCG003 will be offered for sale in race form at the Geneva Motor Show, and the Scuderia will also take orders for the road version that will be available late in the year.
Scuderia Cameron-Glickenhaus will constantly keep its fans and friends informed through its Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ScuderiaCameronGlickenhaus and the new SCG003 website will be online at http://www.scg003project.com
