The covers came off Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus’ new built-from-scratch supercar, the SCG003S, only a few hours ago and now we have our first look at the car in its motorsport form. Called the SCG003C, where the “C” in the title stands for Competizione (the road-going version has an “S” for Stradale), the new race car will be shown for the first time at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and will eventually be entered into the 2015 Nürburgring 24 Hours. In a previous attempt, SCG came 12th overall and first in class in the grueling race using its P4/5 Competizione.
Full details on the SCG003C are yet to be announced but we already know some of the specs. The car will feature SCG’s own engine design, though one loosely based on the twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 built by Honda’s HPD motorsport division. At present, two 003 race cars have been confirmed for production, and both will be entered in this year’s N24 race.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003S
As for the SCG003S road car, SCG is expected to offer buyers a choice of engines ranging up to a twin-turbocharged V-12 (a modular design allows for multiple engine and transmission configs). But brute power won’t be the 003’s key trait. Instead, low weight and aerodynamic efficiency are the main goals. SCG even promises that some of the car’s configurations will allow a Koenigsegg One:1-rivaling power to weight ratio of one horsepower for every kilogram of weight (2.2 pounds).
So how much can you expect to pay for the car? SCG founder James Glickenhaus has previously quoted a starting price of 2.1 million euros (approximately $2.35 million) for the SCG003S, with the SCG003C likely to cost an additional 750,000 to 1 million euros ($840k to $1.12 million).
We'll have all the details soon as the Geneva Motor Show gets underway March 3. In the meantime, see what else will be at the show by visiting our dedicated hub.
