Glickenhaus SCG 003 Teased Again: Now Taking Shape

Follow Nelson

In a world where the famous P4/5 managed to one-up Ferrari's Enzo halo car, it might be hard to wonder where James Glickenhaus and Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus could go next. The answer is the SCG 003, and it's starting to take real shape.

Expectations for the SCG 003 are high: rumors of a 1,600-pound curb weight, power in excess of 500 horses from a twin-turbo V-6, stunning exterior style, and face-stretching performance are all part of the package.

Previous teasers have hinted at a shape not too far departed from the current P4/5 and P4/5 Competizione race car, which is to say, not far from what has become the modern supercar norm: extreme streamlining, with bodywork stretched as minimally as possible over wheels, occupants, and engine.

Carbon fiber will play a central role in the SCG 003's construction, naturally, but in the latest teaser images we see hints of the overall shape as well as a few of the details as it is carved from foam and mocked up into its future exterior shape.

The first image (in the gallery above) seems to depict an angular top-down view from the roof overlooking the right-front fender. Lines molded into the roof indicate gullwing-style doors, while the front fender looks to be slightly separated from the rest of the bodywork, not entirely unlike the Caparo T1, or perhaps only lightly joined like the BAC Mono. The second photo shows an air inlet, most likely along the side forward of the left rear fender.
