If you couldn’t get an allocation for the $2.25 million McLaren Speedtail, don’t fret. There’s another 3-seat hypercar that you can get for a lot less. The SCG 004S developed by James Glickenhaus’ company is a $400,000 supercar which was first revealed in renditions almost a year ago. Recently, Glickenhaus posted a rendered video of the upcoming 004S on his Facebook which shows some changes made to the supercar since the initial renderings.
From what we can see, the rear view mirrors have been moved to a new position, closer to the hood rather than the windows. The doors receive a design upgrade as well and now curve towards the front fenders. Glickenhaus reached out to Motor1 to expand on the changes made to the 004S’ design. The founder informed that the front scuttle, the roof at the front and the center of the buttresses are curved more in order to make the greenhouse look less tall. SCG also raised the top of the nose on the 004S and sloped it to vanishing point to achieve the same objective. The car can still fit a 6.5 ft driver with a helmet. The interior is reworked with a sunroof and race-required escape hatch.
The 004S will be available with an optional 800 hp LT5 engine alongside the base 650 hp LT4 power plant borrowed from the Nissan GT-R. Both engines can be mated to a manual or automatic transmission with paddle shifters. SCG also plans a GT3 004C version, a car it eased earlier this year for late 2019 launch.
