SCG 004CS Is Now Street Legal, But The Cost Will Make You Not Want to Drive it
The Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) 004CS was announced back in 2020 and, even if we had to wait two years for it, the supercar is now finally street legal in the U.S. The non-road-legal race car - the 004C - just raced the recent Nurburgring 24 Hours where it finished 12th overall. As for the street legal version - the 004CS - a report from Road & Track suggests that deliveries will begin next month and that, by the end of 2022, a total of 25 customers will already receive their cars. As expected, the car will not be cheap, with prices set to start from an eye-watering $627,000.
The Fastest American Cars Ever Produced
While most people might automatically assume some of the fastest cars ever made are from Europe or Japan, that simply isn’t the case because you’ve got some pretty serious speed machines conceived right here in America. This list is comprised of cars from both mainstream automakers and boutique manufacturers who produce just a handful of super-exotics per year. Spoiler: The fastest American car also happens to be the world’s fastest production car currently!
Cringe In Pain As You Watch the Glickenhaus 004S Go Through Crash Testing
Crash-testing a car is, sadly, an unavoidable and expensive procedure, if a manufacturer wants to make a road-legal car. The YouTube channel AMMO NYC has mostly to do with car detailing tutorials, but it’s not limited to that. However, the following video is quite different from the channel’s usual itinerary, as it takes us on a ride in the Glickenhaus 004S prototype, which is about to be crash-tested.
You Might Be Able to Buy a Street Legal Glickenhaus 007 Le Mans Racecar!
Nowadays, the term “Racecar for the road” is awfully misused, mostly by marketing “experts” who are desperately trying to seduce people with more money than sense. That said, there are a few companies out there that do not mess about. Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SC Glickenhaus) has been getting a lot of exposure in recent times. Their philosophy is simple. They build racecars for the toughest races out there and then, they build street versions of them. It seems the same might be true for one of their latest creations – the SCG 007 Le Mans racecar.
One of the things we love about internal combustion engines is the sounds they make. This is especially true when we talk about high-performance and racing engines. With that being said, the LMP grid for the 2023 FIA Endurance Championship will be quite busy. Big names like Ferrari and Porsche are making a comeback, joining alongside others like Toyota and Audi. Scuderia Cameron Glicenhaus is also bringing in a proper challenger and it sounds like the devil.

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is known for its motorsport-oriented builds. The company became the talk of the town when it beat the Bronco at the 2019 Baja 1000.

2021 SCG 003S
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus – aka SCG – knows a thing or two about racing. So, when they say the SCG 003S is a race car for the road, something we hear way too often these days, you can bet that is exactly what they mean.
Developed with the expertise gained from racing at Le Mans or the Nurburgring, the SCG 003S is hand-built from the ground up in Sleepy Hollow, New York. And as you can imagine, it is nothing to sneeze at. Let us take a closer look.
The Baja 1000 Just Let the SCG Boot Prove That It’s Infinitely Better Than the Ford Bronco R
Ford entered the off-road Bronco prototype, the Bronco R, at last year’s Baja 1000 and it took a lot of people by surprise because the Bronco was not unveiled yet. It couldn’t complete the race, but it managed to add to the ongoing buzz surrounding it. This year, the Bronco R completed the race, but couldn’t beat its rival, the SCG Boot. The SCG Boot just scored its second consecutive Class 2 victory despite a punctured tire during the run. Is the Boot on the verge of becoming a legend in the Class 2 category?
SCG 007 Will Drop Its Twin-Turbo V-6 In Favor Of A Twin-Turbo V-8
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, so far the only American outfit set to field a prototype built to the new-for-2021 LM Hypercar rules in the FIA World Endurance Championship, has finally settled on its choice of engine for the 007 prototype that will now house a twin-turbocharged V-8 instead of an Alfa Romeo-derived twin-turbocharged V-6 as originally planned.
SCG Wants You To Build Your Own Off-Road, Mid-Engined Buggy
In March 2020, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, or commonly known as SCG, posted a random rendering on Facebook which looked like the lovechild of the company’s 004 sports car and the Boot off-roader that took part in last year’s Baja 1000 event. Although it looked funky, no one took it seriously. Fast-forward a couple of months, the company announces that it is becoming a reality. The company will be selling this buggy soon, but as a DIY vehicle. Yep, you’ll have to make your own. Will you?
SCG Wants to Make a Kit Car Out of This Sketch
Since Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus focuses mainly on designing and building boutique, high-performance exotic sports cars, it’s safe to say that the 99 percenters out there can only dream of driving the likes of SCG 003, 004, 006, and 007. Even the Steve McQueen-inspired Baja Boot is bound to cost an arm and a leg.
Have no fear, though. Mr. Glickenhaus is apparently not ignoring the masses, as he wants his company to develop an affordable car that would lure in more customers for the brand. Are we on board with this? Well, of course we are.
