The 004CS will combine the best aspects of the upcoming 004 series cars.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, the low volume US car manufacturer that revealed the 004S three-seat road car at the end of last year as well as its track-based variant the 004C, has just announced plans to build another variant of this high-performance vehicle. Dubbed the 004CS, this new model will feature design aspects from both of its predecessors and will essentially become the road-going version of the hardcore 004C.
With a more luxurious interior similar to the 004S combined with a more aggressive exterior aero package, the 004CS will also be far more powerful than the 690-hp S. While all three variants will be motivated by the highly-tuneable VR38DETT V6 motor from the Nissan GT-R, in the 004CS it will be tuned to produce up to around 900 hp. While the 004C will be built to compete in various GT3 and GT4 race categories, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus plans to enter the CS into races as well, most notably the 2020 Nurburgring 24-hour endurance event. Such confidence in the underlying mechanicals comes from having entered the CS’s predecessor, the 003, in similar events over the past few years.
In fact, the company plans to drive the CS to the track, swap the road engine for the race-prepped one and see how it performs in this largely standard form. The road-bound 004S comes with a full carbon-fiber bodyshell and is fitted with a six-speed manual transmission as standard. It remains to be seen whether the CS will also be available with a manual transmission but that would make these limited-production sports cars unique indeed. The 2018 allocation has already been spoken for but SCG plans to produce 250 units per year by 2020 to satisfy homologation requirements so get those checkbooks ready.
