Both road and race car variants coming to Geneva.
Set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next week, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has unveiled its latest road and racing cars dubbed the SCG003S (S for Stradale) and SCG003C (C for Competizione). The man behind the project, James Glickenhaus, has previously revealed the SCG003 is intended to be an endurance racer that is technically a GT car, offering LMP1 (the really powerful purpose-built prototypes) levels of performance.
It will also be street legal, with an easily swappable engine, changing out the Honda-based racing 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 (badged as an SCG) for a road-tuned twin-turbo V6 that’s currently in development. According to Jalopnik, the Le Mans prototype-inspired dual-purpose GT was designed by Granstudio in Turin, and engineered by Podium Engineering and Paolo Catone: the masterminds behind the Peugeot 908 endurance racer that won the 2009 24 Hours of Le Mans. A carbon-fiber chassis was built from scratch with suspension pick-up points held by the rear frame to ensure easy engine swaps.
Using a highly-advanced modular construction, the SCG003 also boasts push-rods all round, double wishbone front/rear suspension with rocker-operated KW adjustable dampers, 18-inch rims wrapped in Dunlop tires, Bosch Motorsport electronics, with the race engine's 530 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque sent to the rear wheels via a Hewland paddle shift sequential transmission. Following the cars unveiling in Geneva, the race team will head to the Nurburgring 24 Hours with the SCG003C.
