Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus 004 S announced


Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus - manufacturer of the 800hp 003S - has made clear its intention to expand its racing program into GTE, and beyond. To do so it'll need a qualifying road car and - oh look! - here comes one now.


This is the SCG 004S. It's powered by a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8, one which redlines at 8,200rpm, and puts out 640hp and 531lb ft via a choice of gated six-speed manual or paddle shift transmission. And if that doesn't allude to its motorsport aspirations, then the centrally located, McLaren F1-style, driving position and 1,179kg weight - thanks to a carbon fibre chassis and body - ought to.

Those aren't the figures which SCG cares about though. Having recently attained Low Volume Manufacture status in the USA, the marque can now build up to 325 cars a year, and expects to be able to produce up to 250 examples of the 004S annually by 2021. That's comfortably more than the number required to enter a car into GTE, and Le Mans.


Glickenhaus, of course, already has experience in endurance racing, the 003C variant of its existing car already seeing some success at the N24. Factory support for, and sales of, that car will continue once the new one begins competing, despite GT3, GTE and GTLM entries being planned for the 004S too.

We won't have too long to wait either, with the first customer road cars - including 25 special 'Founders Edition' models - due to be delivered in early 2019, the same year that the racecar is set to make its competitive debut.

Prices for the road-going SCG 004S will start at $400,000 (£302,000), with a deposit of $40,000 (£30,200) required to reserve a build slot. No word yet on how much the track version will set you back.

    Not blown away by that considering how fantastic their racing cars look!

  • MrAverage 21 Nov 2017

    Looks and sounds like something from Grand Theft Auto.

    Looks more David Cameron than Cameron Diaz.

    Will probably be awful on the road but I'll doubt they'll care if it does the business at Le Mans.
