[Update] James Glickenhaus is known for his collection of unique Ferrari supercars. This time at the Geneva Motor Show, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus will unveil a brand new supercar. It is called the SCG003S and you have been reading about it here on ‘The Supercar Blog’. The idea behind this particular car is that, it can be configured for track use with just a few modifications. The model featured in the official images here is the ‘Stradale’, i.e. road car configuration. Nevertheless, the SCG003S, despite its odd name looks brilliant, especially in “Liquid Metal Silver”.
SCG003C, where ‘C’ stands for ‘Competizione’ has also been revealed. This is the race car that Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus will race in the world endurance championships. The race car with a close-cockpit is based on the same chassis as its road going counterpart. The team has developed this car over the last few years including aerodynamics, chassis and suspension. The engine however comes from Honda’s HPD motorsports division. It is believed to be a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6.

[Updated] James Glickenhaus and his Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has been working overtime to get their brand new car ready for the 2015 Geneva motor show. It is called the SCG003 and it would be the direct successor the awesome Ferrari P4/5 Competizione.
Unlike the P4/5, the new car will be road legal but can be transformed into a serious track machine when required. This was Glickenhaus’ vision from the onset- a supercar that could be driven on track and on public roads. The solution was found in a modular architecture, on which the SCG003 is based. Two of these will be raced at the 24 Hours of Nurburging later next year.
After a few teaser videos, James Glickenhaus has finally released a few more images and specs of the SCG003. The car has been testing at Vairano in Italy of which a video has been released. Also, the engine clearly sounds turbocharged and that’s because, the V6 powerplant is in fact, boosted by two turbines and should be making power upwards of 700 hp.
