Order books are now open for the roadster, which starts around $250,000.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus
Let's recap what's coming from Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus. The small-batch U.S. manufacturer showed the 004S last November, a carbon-fiber bodied, 2,600-pound, three-seater road car that comes with a gated, six-speed manual but offers a paddle-shifter as a cost option. A track-only version called the 004C will be developed to run in GTE, GTLM, GT3, and GT4 racing, as well as Germany's VLN series that includes Nürburgring races in the SPX class. Then we have the 004CS, which is the road-go
Glickenhaus will equip the 004S with a tuned Nissan GT-R VR38DETT V6. This means a bump in power, as the 650-horsepower estimate for the V8 can now be substituted with a 690hp figure.
While it doesn't need roads, or even dry land, it'll be road legal
A far cry from custom Ferraris.
SCG will be pleased to engrave your name in the pre-order books right now, taking a $40,000 deposit against the 004S base price around $400,000.
At first there will be a handful cars made, and you can choose from three versions at $2M each.
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.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is showing off the SCG 003 undisguised for the first time in both street and track trim. The company's latest project can reportedly swap engines to go between the road and the circuit.
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.
He may not have known it at the time, but James Glickenhaus started a small revolution when he commissioned Pininfarina to turn his Ferrari Enzo into a tribute to the legendary 330 P3/4. The P4/5 is what resulted, and Ferrari gave its blessing for it to wear the Prancing Horse emblem – something it hadn't done for a coachbuilt custom in decades. A slew of rebodied Ferraris followed, prompting the factory to launch its own coachbuilding division. But Jim wasn't out of the picture.
