Same Baja-Winning Format, But Now For More People

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) has wowed us over the years with pretty spectacular creations. From taking a Le Mans podium with the SCG007 Hypercar, to the SCG004, which can take on the challenging IIHS crash safety tests without any airbags. Now, it has been working on building an four-door version of its Baja race-winning Boot so more people can enjoy the epic vehicle. Recently, SCG posted an image of the frame of the first prototype for this four-door Boot. And if the same-old-same-old SUV things are getting you disinterested in new vehicles, you gotta take a closer look at this.

The frame looks similar to the legendary Baja 1000 race-winning SCG Boot, though with a longer wheelbase, a place for rear passengers, and a pretty hefty roll cage. The winch location and engine location appear to be the same for this build, which shows that SCG has no intention of changing the winning formula, even with the addition of rear seats for the off-road racer.

What Is The SCG Boot?

It’s unclear what SCG will be adding to power the epic four-door Boot, but it may be the same or similar to what the standard $258,000 Baja 1000-proven machine features. The power output for the standard Boot is 460 horsepower, courtesy of a GM-sourced 6.2L LT1 V8 engine, sending all of those ponies to all four wheels through just about any terrain. The off-road tires appear to be the same size, though they are Yokohama instead of BFGoodrich. The engine can be upgraded to 650 horsepower, while the tires can be bumped up in size as needed for the standard SCG Boot, so we can expect something similar once development finishes on this four-door version.

Some modifications will likely be made to account for the added mass of four passengers rather than just two. Still, we will likely see a front winch, a massive gas tank, an onboard fired suppression system, and an onboard compressor incorporated into the finished product. Of course, we can’t forget about the ever-important lighting. Whatever SCG has in store for the four-door Boot, it’ll be epic, and if you’re looking to keep hold of your hype surrounding this epic off-road racer, check out the four-part video series on SCG’s YouTube channel showcasing the process required to handcraft the two-door version.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
