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.
As a reminder, here is what Glickenhaus said about the car in March, which we then knew as the P33:
What if I stepped back? Simpler. Lighter. Smaller? Could it be that "Less is really more?" That's what our new road car is giong to be. Lighter, smaller, simpler and very beautiful. Our goals are similar HP/LB to my P 3/4 and something that is a new, forward design where it's three wing are integrated into the form as a Porsche 959's rear wing is. I'm calling it P 33 as it's our third one off and it will have three integrated wings. It's also a tip of the hat to the Alfa T33 Stradale but not a visual Hommage to it. It will be Dino Competizione sized. Henry Ford said: "When ever I see an Alfa Romeo I always tip my hat." and I do too. We're thinking CF tub, a TTV6 and a very sexy shape. Paolo will be heading up the team again my Long time friend and chief mechanic Sal Barone will be making sure it all works and Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus and it's associates will be designing, engineering and building P 33. P 33 will be badged as an SCG as is P 4/5 Competizione. From the day I took the Ferrari Badge off of P 4/5 Competizione (something viewed by millions of people on our FB site) I haven't looked back.
When we have a sketch we're happy with we'll share them with you.
He now has that sketch, and it's something else.
The car, which will debut at the Geneva show in 2015, will come in both road going and competition forms, kind of like the P4/5. He wants the car to set new records and benchmarks for stiffness and lightness in its class, which is exactly what we were told in March.
Basically, it's LMP1 design for a GT car, so it sounds like it'll be a radical approach to car building.
The intention is to run it in the 24 Hours of the Nurburgring in 2015 right after its debut at the Geneva show, where it'll run in the SPX class.
Currently it's known as the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003, with the competition version going by SCG003C. Now, 2013 isn't even over yet and Glickenhaus has just made me excited for 2015.
Will 2014 ever end?
