Fifty years from now, when a retired journalist writes a book about Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus and the SCG 003, it will be the tale of David and Goliath full of nice pictures and adjectives like ‘legendary’ and ‘astonishing’. And it won’t be far off the truth.
James Glickenhaus rocks. Not only is he making a Le Mans car for the street that can go from road car to race car, he's shared his latest plans for the engine and chassis design in our comments. And that includes a modular architecture that can swap between a twin-turbo V6 and a twin-turbo V12.
James Glickenhaus is nuts, but in all the right ways. In the case of the forthcoming SCG 003 LeMans car-for-the-road, he'll be offering a version that can be converted from road car to race car and back again. And that's exactly what he plans to do at the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans.
James Glickenhaus is building his first car from the ground-up and this is the carbon fiber work of art that will underpin it. He could stop right now and we'd mount it on our wall, but he has much bigger plans.
It's easy to get lost in great cars, and it's especially easy among the jaw-dropping historics of the Amelia Concours D'Elegance. But there's more to it all than the machines themselves.
In March of this year, we received word that Jim Glickenhaus of P4/5 and P4/5 Competizione fame would be unveiling a new car. We've now gotten our first tease, and it is going to be a masterpiece. This is your first look at the SCG003.
Did I mention that last week we had a little film festival? It was fantastic and, if you weren't one of the lucky hundreds who showed up, our friends at /DRIVE put together of the different panels. Here's the first one, featuring Kazunori Yamauchi, Ken Block, James Glickenhaus, and Tamir Moscovici.
Last year, Jim Glickenhaus had a charity auction for a trip to the Nurburgring 24 to see the P4/5 Competizione in action. I immediately decided to win that auction at all costs. I did, and this is the adventure I went on. It was more amazing than it looks.
Getting the box off the truck took a half-hour. The unboxing took two hours. The photo shoot took another half hour. Here's Gene Sanchez's video that condenses the proceedings down to 4:25. P4/5C, meet P4/5.
Ah, the 24 Hours of Lemons. The racing series where ingenuity, driving skills, ridiculousness and bribery all come together for an unforgettable experience. But at a Lemons race this weekend at the Monticello Motor Club, the pace car cost slightly more than just $500: James Glickenhaus' fantastic Ferrari P4/5 by…
Pininfarina is the design house that has been responsible for pretty much every great Ferrari production car ever built. Ferrari says that the LaFerrari hypercar was designed without input or help from Pininfarina. It's more like Pininfarina gave Ferrari all the ingredients, and they baked them into a beautiful,…
Jim Glickenhaus is pretty much the person that we want to grow up to be. He has the means to not only collect some of the most significant cars of all time, but he also builds his own icons and drives them.
