​Jim Glickenhaus Gives Us Another Taste Of The SCG 003

Illustration for article titled ​Jim Glickenhaus Gives Us Another Taste Of The SCG 003

You're killing us, Glick. We've seen the chassis. We know it'll transform from a road car to a race car. You're even planning to drive the SCG 003 to the 24 Hours of Nürburgring, race, then head into Paris to end the weekend with a nice bottle of Château d'Yquem. Just show us your masterpiece already!

Yes, Glickenhaus is teasing us yet again with his LMP1 car for the road. We desperately, desperately want to see it in all its glory. But Jim is still holding out before the SCG 003's big reveal at the Geneva Motor Show in March. It can't come soon enough. But in the meantime, we've got a new wallpaper.

Hi

Chassis 001 is ready for her roll Track Test. We will be releasing some photo's and video. The first test roll out will be in Camo. Chassis 002 is our first customer road version and will be ready to test along side Chassis 001 in January. At the 24 Hours of Nurburgring we will be a two car team and I think no matter what happens we will rock the house. Our race version has a HPD Honda TTV6 Developed by and Badged SCG. Engine management is being done by Bosch and Engine development by our P 4/5 C team Autotechnica. SCG 003 weighed in VERY nicely and it's aero designed in CFD was confirmed recently in a rolling road wind tunnel. THe car is built to GT3 rules. We are VERY pleased with it's aerodynamic efficiency. I am lucky to own some very special cars and I've seen a lot of things but this one is something else.

Our road version will use a TT W12. The car will be easily owner convertible from Road to Race to Road with plug and play assemblies. The construction is modular with zero reference mounts so it's easily bolt on and off repairable.

While the frontal area is nicely compact two can comfortably fit inside and as the race roll cage is bolt in bolt out getting in isn't an issue. The interior is really wonderful.

Final reveal will be at the Geneva Auto Show.

Both Cars will race the 3 and 6 Hour VLN leading to the N24 and if any of you are around please say hello and we'll give you a full tour of our pits.

Regarding LeMans. Our purpose in selling customer cars is to fund future racing and if all goes

well we hope to be there in 2016 with an interesting evolution of our cars.

Best!
