The roadgoing version of the 007 LMH will have a twin-turbo V8 and the ability to scare two of your friends at once.
Glickenhaus has revealed fresh details of its upcoming 007S street-legal hypercar, based on the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus 007 LMH.
Like the McLaren F1, GMA T.50, and McLaren Speedtail, the 007S will employ a central driving position, making space for two passengers. In addition, a twin-turbocharged V8 will produce in the region of 1,000 horsepower, down from 2021 hints that it would produce just shy of 1,400 hp. Still, there's reason to celebrate, as the company says that its creation will be fully road-legal in America.
The first example has already been sold, but if you have $2.5 million to splash on a new toy, Glickenhaus is taking orders.
The 007S is said to be "coming along nicely," which we hope means we will see a real-life prototype hit the roads soon.
Unfortunately, that's as far as the update goes, and we'll probably have to wait a little while for more information. That said, we know that it will be like past hypercars from the company in that the only difference between how you use it on track and how you enjoy it on the road will be the tire compound fitted.
Swap some aggressive rubber onto the car, and you can hang with the best of them on the world's most demanding circuits.
The 007S will join the automaker's other wild creations, which include the SCG003S, the SCG004S, and the Boot SUV. The 003S was revealed in 2015 as a $2 million monster powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, while the 004 arrived in 2017 and got a 6.2-liter twin-turbo V8. The Boot, on the other hand, is an entirely different proposition, specifically a pickup with electric power. Glickenhaus also offers a Baja racer called the 008.
As if all of these projects are not ambitious enough, Glickenhaus wants to prove that hydrogen has a future in street-legal cars.
We'll reserve judgment on that one for now.
