New Glickenhaus SCG006 Is The Type Of Retro Sports Car We Would Buy

They just don't make 'em like they used to.

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is a boutique American manufacturer that typically builds hardcore track cars. It's latest projects include a 900-horsepower hypercar with three seats called the 004CS, and the 750-hp, $2 million SCG003 hypercar. Now it seems Glickenhaus is turning its sights on something a bit more reasonable: a retro-themed sports car dubbed the SCG006, or the Glickenhaus Spyder if you aren't into alphanumerical names.

Glickenhaus shared a rendering of the Sypder, along with a few sketches, on its Facebook page. The design reminds us of a Ferrari 275 GTB, mixed with some C3 Corvette in the rear and some Shelby Cobra side pipes. Unfortunately, no additional details about the engine or price were provided, but the post did include a message saying "work in progress" and "tweaking and more to come." Glickenhaus has obtained a special license in the US to sell up to 325 cars per year that don't adhere to federal crash and emissions standards, so the SCG006 could be viable for production.

In the past, Glickenhaus has borrowed engines from BMW and Nissan, though this new car looks like it could benefit from something more meaty - like the supercharged LT5 V8 from the new Corvette ZR1. We'd love to see more cars like this reach production, and we see it as a possible competitor for cars like those produced by Singer.
