640-HP Glickenhaus 007 Wants To Make America Great

Supercar / Comments

But it won't come cheap.

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has been developing its new SCG 007 hypercar for a while now, though the company has remained rather tight-lipped regarding the finer details of the project. That changes today.

SCG has just released this new batch of official renderings that provide us with the clearest indicator yet of what its upcoming Le Mans racing hypercar will look like. Some earlier renderings were created but this new set is more detailed and looks closer to production-ready. And, of course, there's new information about it as well.

Last September, SCG stated the 007 will come powered by an exclusively developed mid-mounted 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6. SCG now claims it will produce 640 horsepower. It's also capable of serious endurance racing and can maintain that level of power for 30 hours straight.

We still don't know the engine's origins, meaning whether or not it was developed fully or partially in-house. There were previous rumors it is a heavily modified version of the V6 found in the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. A total weight of 2,425 pounds is being targeted and the main goal is to have the SCG 007 ready to race at Le Mans in either 2020 or 2021. The price? SCG tells us each 007 hypercar will run for 2 million euros apiece.

According to the latest exchange rates, that's about $2.59 million. It's also important to bear in mind SCG is still not done with overall engineering and development, meaning it's entirely possible the output figure could change. Same goes for the price.

And yes, there will be a road-legal version as per regulations, but the emphasis right now is on the endurance racer. "A car made in America hasn't won first overall at Le Mans since the Ford MkIV in 1967," says company founder Jim Glickenhaus. "We think it's time an American team wins again."

Assuming SCG's Le Mans plans continue as planned, the SCG 007 is set to compete against the Aston Martin Valkyrie and Toyota GR Super Sport in the new hypercar-based class.
