The company behind the one-off Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina has unveiled its latest creation. Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) has developed road and race versions of the new SCG003. SCG says it has downforce and engine torque that are "unknown in the supercar world."
The SCG003 has been in the cards since 2013 and the project is said to have taken exactly 12 months to move from the concept approval stage to the first roll-out. As with SCG's previous projects, the SCG003 project has been headed up by Paolo Garella. Granstudio was enlisted for for design work and Podium Engineering for the car's mechanical chassis and aero development.
The two versions of the car are the SCG003C (Competizione) track car and the SCG003S (Stradale) road-going model. SCG says there are minimal differences between the two and that they are inspired by the latest design and technology innovations from the Le Mans Prototype series.
With that in mind, SCG says the Competizione will compete in the 24 Hours Nürburgring race, with the company, tongue-in-cheek, thumbing its nose at the idea of simply pitting the car up against the circuit's Nordschleife for a headline lap-time.
The SCG003 has a lightweight carbon fiber chassis, with the car coming in at under 1,200 kg (2,646 lb). The Competizione version is powered by a V6 3.5 l twin-turbo that has been developed by Autotecnica Motori and is apparently derived from the HPD Honda V6 engine. It is expected to output over 600 hp and torque of 750 Nm.
Elsewhere, the Competizione will feature a Hewland gearbox with paddle shift controls, front and rear push-rod suspension with KW Dampers, Bosch Motorsport electronics and Dunlop tires. Performance can be adjusted depending on which race series the car is competing in. The Competizione can be converted to a road version should an owner wish, whilst the Stradale will have a V6 twin-turbo that is being specially developed.
The SCG003 will be shown off at the Geneva Motorshow in March, with orders for the Competizione being taken at the show and orders for the Stradale to start being accepted later in the year. You can see the car in action, in the video below.
