If the name SCG doesn’t ring a bell for you its only because up until now you were more familiar with the "James Glickenhaus." Yes, the developer of the famous Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina and the race version, the P4/5 Competizione (pictured here).
SCG - or Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus - is his personal brand that will hit the market with two new models: a road car called 003 and the race version, 003C. Why 003? No big explanation here: simply because it will be the third model developed by Glickenhaus.
In a recent post Glickenhaus, said that the company already started to work on the engineering, aero and design, but unfortunately you shouldn’t expect to see the new model until 2015.
Talking about the new model, Glickenhaus said it will feature "a very sexy shape" and will be about the same size as the Ferrari Dino. It will also be lighter, smaller, simpler and very beautiful and its design language will feature "three wings integrated into the form as a Porsche 959’s rear wing is."
While he offered no other details on the upcoming 003, previous reports suggested the model will be powered by a twin-turbocharged V-6 engine with an output of about 500 horsepower.
