The Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, both a manufacturer and race team, was the produce the SCG003 project will feature a road-going version (SCG003S) and a GT3-spec racing version (SCG003C). The “S” stands for Stradale while the “C” means Competizione. Meanwhile, the “003” in its name was derive from the fact that the project was Glickenhaus’ third major one, falling behind the Lola T70 Can-Am racer, which he converted for road use, and the Ferrari Enzo-based P4/5 by Pininfarina.

The car has a Le Mans-prototype feature, as Glickenhaus has previously stated his desire to race at Le Mans. However, it was confirmed that two SCG003s will be competing at the 2015 Nürburgring 24 Hours in May.

The car has a carbon fiber structure for rigidity and flexibility, as well as for easy maintenance and safety. The rear carbon fiber frame features a suspension pick to easily exchange and use different engines on the same platform. Push-rod suspensions are also installed at both ends of the vehicle.

The racing spec packs a twin-turbo 3.5 liter V-6 developed by Autotecnica Motori designed after a Honda unit. The road-going car, on the other hand, has a twin-turbo V-6 that Glickenhaus and his team have personally developed. SCG003 also has a Hewland sequential unit as its standard transmission with paddle shifters.

As stated by Glickenhaus, the SCG003’s race version can be easily converted into the road version and vice versa, as they only have minimal differences.

To this date, the only known performance figures about the vehicle is that SCG003S will have around 600 horsepower with a weight of 1,100 kilograms (2,425 pounds).

Dozens of serious buyers have shown interest on the new “supercar”, according to Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus.

SCG has set a starting price of 2.1 million euros (approximately $2.35 million) for the SCG003S, while the SCG003C is likely to cost an additional amount of 750,000 to 1 million euros ($840,000 to $1.12 million)
