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. 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? 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 later in 2015.

Updated 02/27/2015: James Glickenhaus revealed the official details of the SCG 003 supercar with just a few days before the official debut in Geneva.

One of the more striking elements of this design is the rear wheel arches that are akin to the rear haunches of a cheetah ready to pounce.

Ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has finally released official images of the SCG 003 and the motorsports-minded SCG 003C. Just as expected, the Ferrari Enzo-based supercar looks more like a Le Mans Prototype racecar built for the street. The front end is a suggestion at the car’s Enzo underpinnings with its F1-style nose and split front fenders, but the rest of the carbon fiber body was imagined up by James Glickenhaus & Co.

One of the more striking elements of this design is the rear wheel arches that are akin to the rear haunches of a cheetah ready to pounce. Plucked right from your typical P1 racecar, SCG 003 has a stabilizing fin running down the back half of the car’s spine, while the rear view reveals more vents, curves and contours than the 2017 Ford GT. All of this shows that the SCG 003 will have the speed to back up its devilish appearance.

In motorsports trim, the biggest differences with the SCG 003C (Competizione) are the new headlight units with larger – possibly halogen – lighting elements instead of what would appear to be the LED headlights used on the street car. At the rear of the SCG 003C, the integrated wing has been replaced by a massive raised wing more befitting a Le Mans-intended racer.

Interior

On the inside, I expect two wholly different cars, as the road-ready model will features a fir amount of niceties while still aiming for a low curb weight, while the race-ready model will be stripped of nearly everything.

On the road-going model, expect to see some premium materials, like leather and Alcantara, and look for a high-grade audio system, climate control, and other features that we all expect from road cars. On the race car, look for the bare minimum: a carbon-fiber seat, a racing steering wheel, a minimalist dashboard, and no carpeting or noise-deadening material at all.

Drivetrain

Look for the latter to close in on the 800-horsepower mark.

Under the hood, Autocar reports that the SCG 003 will have a few engines available. All racing versions will carry a Honda Motorsports-sourced 3.5-liter V-6 with a pair of turbos. The road-ready model, on the other hand will have a range of engines that is capped off by a twin-turbo V-12 monster. Look for the latter to close in on the 800-horsepower mark.

Sources close to the SCG 003 say to look for the model to hover close to the Koenigsegg One:1’s insane weight ratio.

Prices

The Autocar report claims that SCG officials have priced the 003 at £1.6 million ($2.5 million as of 2/24/15) for the road version and an extra £750,000 ($1.16 million as of 2/24/15) for the racing model.

Competition

Ferrari P4/5 Competizione

The P4/5 Competizione is a race car built on a Ferrari 430 Scuderia chassis combined with the suspension and the V-8 drivetrain of an F430 GT2 ALMS racing car. The V-8 delivers a total of 483 horsepower and 343 pound-feet of torque. It lapped the famous Nurburgring in just 6:51.

On the exterior, the P4/5 Competizione is distinguished by its aggressive design language that features a massive silver rear spoiler for optimum downforce, a square air intake with triangular headlights, plus a massive black front lip spoiler that runs all the way back to the wheel arches.

Conclusion

To say that the SCG 003 won’t be one of the best cars revealed this year will likely be an insane understatement. With a lightweight body, a massive V-12 between the rear wheels, and Le Mans Prototype-like styling, there is little not to love about this thing – except the ridiculous price, that is. That said, this SCG 003’s super-high price also helps with exclusivity, making it worth even more money as it ages.
