Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus thinks the street version of its SCG 003 might be able to lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife in as little as 6 minutes and 30 seconds. The company extrapolates that from an estimated 6:42 lap around the complete course in race trim.

After basing its previous commissions on Ferraris, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has unhitched its horse with the new SCG 003, unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and ready to hit road or track.

There are now two prototype examples of the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003 GT endurance racers, the final version of which will be launched at the Geneva Motor Show then campaign in events like the Nürburgring 24-Hour race and the 24 Hours of Spa. A six-minute video during testing at Vallelunga tells the story behind them.

James Glickenhaus' upcoming SCG 003 is, if the billionaire's previous cars are any indication, going to be a seriously cool vehicle. But according to Glickenhaus, it's coolest feature will be its versatility. And no, we're not talking about its use as a child hauler or tow vehicle.

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has made (or commissioned) two vehicles to date – the P4/5 and the P4/5 Competizione – and is now hard at work on its third. The first was based on the Ferrari Enzo and the second on a Ferrari F430, but the third is being developed independently from the ground up. The question, then, is what engine will it use?

Aside from being a Hollywood director and investment banker, James Glickenhaus has one of the most awesome car collections around, full of classic Ferrari racers. But that wasn't enough for him, so he started commissioning his own: the Enzo-based Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina and the 430-based P4/5 Competizione. But basing his supercars on existing ones has evidently proven tiresome for the venerable collector, so now he's building his own.

Just a couple of weeks ago we brought you the first teaser video of James Glickenhaus' new project, and now his racing team has released some key details.

Believe it or not, unloading a car from a transport vehicle is a delicate science. It's alarmingly easy to damage a car in the tight, elevated confines of a dedicated car hauler, but as these gentlemen at the Monterey car week found out, even getting a car off a flatbed comes with its own unique set of challenges.

One of the truly great things about a LeMons race is that the event is a celebration of all cars. We appreciate the fact that Lamborghini and Ferrari models get all sorts of fanfare throughout the year, but where else will you see a lowly Ford Fairmont cheered around a road track? Nowhere else, we tell you. The races are also an excuse for the lowliest of hardware to rub shoulders with high end metal. Take a recent event at Monticello Motor Club, for example. James Glickenhaus stopped in with hi

James Glickenhaus and his Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus team will have a new model ready for the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Codenamed the P33, not many details are known about the car, but the post in FerrariChat.com says that it will be much smaller than the Glickenhaus P 4/5 (shown above) with a size closer to the Dino Competizone.

Originally developed with the sole purpose of being a Ferrari rival to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Ford GT40 became a prominent racing machine in the 1960s in both Europe and the US. Not wanting to leave such an important car out of the fun, the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance also took time out from its other celebrations to recognize the 50-year anniversary of the GT40.

Bloomberg recently sat down with James Glickenhaus as part of its Bloomberg Pursuits series. The 15-minute segment traces Glickenhaus' progression from movie director to money manager and finally to Ferrari collector and creator of the P4/5 Competizione. With plenty of interview footage with Glickenhaus himself, as well as a good long look at the man's $20 million car collection and a segment on his team's efforts at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring, the spot is a comprehensive look at not only

According to new reports, James Glickenhaus has more big plans for his P4/5 Competizione, eying an entry in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2014 with an LMP contender. That year there will be a slate of new regulations that refocus cars around around the amount of energy they use per lap (instead of displacement and air restrictions) and that open up the possibilities for design and privateer competitors.

According to the timing sheets for the Nürburgring 24-Hour race, the now-hybridized P4/5 Competizione set a lap time of 6:51 during qualifying. That would make it faster than the "Production-Derived Sports Car" record of 6:58.16 set by the Ferrari 599XX in 2010, and the fastest Ferrari-powered vehicle to ever run the 'Ring.

Race cars are going hybrid these days. Formula One racers store regenerated brake energy. Porsche packs a flywheel into the 911 GT3 R. Just the other day, Toyota unveiled its new TS030 Hybrid endurance prototype. And now even Jim Glickenhaus' one-off Ferrari-powered, Pininfarina-designed P4/5 Competizione is said to be getting a hybrid powertrain.

The 2011 24 Hours of Nürburgring is long over, which means we're due for an update on how James Glickenhaus and his beautiful Ferrari P4/5 Comeptizione fared. Here's the short answer: they finished pretty well. Overall, the car ended up in 40th, but managed a third-place in the E1-XP2 class. Not too shabby.
