SCG003S revealed in production form, new hypercar from Italy

October 12, 2016

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) has released details of a maniacal new hypercar set to premiere at next year’s Geneva Motor Show. Meet the SCG003S.

The car is closely related to the Nürburgring 24-hour-winning SCG003C, replacing with the C for ‘Competizione’ with S for ‘Stradale’, or street. The car is hand-built by the team at Manifattura Automobili Torino in Italy, and is pitched by SCG as “the fastest cornering car on sale”, able to handle a claimed 2Gs through a corner.

Just as a little exercise in comparison and contrast, the Koenigsegg One:1 has apparently pulled 1.72Gs through a 180km/h bend at Suzuka in Japan.

The SCG is powered by a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 producing 559kW, with an unknown torque figure at this point. The 0-100km/h time is claimed to be less than 3.0 seconds, with a top speed of 350km/h. Founder James Glickenhaus said:

“It’s the culmination of a long-held dream to finally see our amazing race car born again as a road car, using all the know-how we have taken from competing in international races and putting it onto the road. This will be a collectable car like no other, capturing the spirit of the road racers that have defined automotive history during the heyday of grand touring.”

Production is slated to commence sometime next year, after the world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show. SCG hasn’t released details as to pricing, but says the car will be available with a wide range of personalisation options for the exterior and engine bay.
