To say that Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus isn’t like other boutique automakers is somewhat of an understatement. Not content with bringing just one performance machine to the market, SCG is currently developing or building six different vehicles aimed at very different segments. From the back-to-back Baja 1000 class winning SCG Boot to the vintage racer-inspired 006, the team has a lot on their plates. That said, perhaps none of their projects are as exciting as the upcoming SCG 007 LMH racer. As the WEC season approaches however, the automaker has just teased a limited run of street-going versions of this LeMans special. Here’s what you need to know about SCG 007S.
The SCG 007S is just an idea at this point, but that will change if 24 well-heeled buyers are willing to step up to the plate. The car is slated to be closely tied to the LeMans-going racer, with a few natural changes needed to get a license plate on the thing. While SCG has been coy with the specifics, there are a few interesting details that we can share. Powertrain output is targeted at 1,400 horsepower, which is more than double the 670 horsepower on tap in the 007LMH. The company hasn’t confirmed whether or not the streetcar will feature the same 3.5L twin-turbo V8 engine as the WEC car, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that is the case. That power won’t have to push around a lot of mass either, as SCG says the 007S will weigh in at a mere 2,800 pounds wet.
In order to keep all of that power in check, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus will fit the hypercar with driver aids like traction control, stability control, and ABS. These systems will feature various modes, with track-focused settings for when owners decide to hit the circuit. Speaking of the track, the car will also feature the same pneumatic jack systems as the racer, which will allow for easy tire and wheel swaps during lapping sessions. When owners aren’t attacking the circuit, they’ll be able to take two passengers along for a ride thanks to the central drivers seat with flanking passenger seats. That’s right folks, a bit of McLaren F1 design has found its way to the latest SCG project.
While the SCG 007S won’t be quite as expensive as that aforementioned McLaren, it isn’t cheap by any means. Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is targeting a base price of $2.3 million, though that money will only be accepted if all 24 slots are spoken for. If that happens, deliveries are expected to take place two years after the fact. As of now the automaker plans to make the LeMans car road legal in the United States, but also believe they can probably get it registered in markets like Europe, the Middle East, and Japan. Here’s to hoping that 24 rich folks are interested in this thing, because it seems like an utterly insane proposition.
