Scuderia Cameron’s Retro Sports Car Will Have A 650-HP Corvette Engine

Supercar / 5 Comments

Deliveries will commence in late 2019 or early 2020.

American manufacturer Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is working on several projects right now, including the upcoming 800-hp SCG004S supercar. But the one that has us most excited is the simplified, retro-inspired SCG006 sports car. After announcing the project back in July, SCG has released new images and some tantalizing technical details for the 006 coupe and 006 Spyder road cars.

The design appears to have been inspired by 1960s-era machines such as the Ferrari 275 GTS and Shelby Cobra, but the body will be constructed entirely from carbon fiber to make it lightweight and modern. Under the hood, SCG has confirmed the 006 will be powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 delivering 650 horsepower. Specifically, it's the same engine fitted to the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. As standard, the V8 will be mated to a six-speed manual transaxle, but SCG will also offer a paddle-shifted unit.

SCG is already accepting deposits for the car, which costs 10 percent of the expected $250,000 price tag. If the company's previous projects are any indication, build slots are expected to fill up fast. The 004 sold out for its first year of production weeks after it was announced.

SCG will also take advantage of NHTSA's low-volume manufacturing rules, which means the 006 will come with a 17-digit VIN and be street-legal in 49 states. SCG also has a list of dealerships signed up to sell the 006 and will offer the car with a warranty. The Coupe will also be available as a GT4 race car, which will likely be called the 006C.

The SCG006 will be built alongside the 004 at the company's new plant being constructed in Connecticut. Deliveries of the first batch of 30 Founder Edition cars will commence in late 2019 or early the following year.
