Underneath this wild Pininfarina-designed body shell sits a Ferrari 512S race car chassis. Built in the early 1970s, this car was toured around the show circuit as a concept for future design elements before it was retired to a life as static art display in the Pininfarina offices. Just four years ago, Ferrari…
I knew the Nürburgring 24 Hours was a big deal before I got here. They’ve got 15.99 miles of track to run tons of cars at once, and regular enthusiasts routinely go door-to-door with Le Mans winners. But the sheer size and scale of this event is larger than I could have ever imagined, and the utter lunacy of racing…
On a normal day, the Nürburgring is heaven for car dorks. This weekend, over 200,000 racing fans—including me—will descend upon the ‘Ring to watch 151 utterly insane teams try to race for an entire day on the full 12.9-mile Nordscheleife course, and I can’t wait. My mind is slowly exploding from the awesomeness that…
Every so often in this trash world, we get to wake up to some good news that’s like a ray of sunlight on a gray and stormy day. Today’s breath of fresh air concerns the New Stratos, which apparently has finally been greenlit for production. Update: The New Stratos will still use Ferrari F430 underpinnings.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is looking to boost its volume and expand its racing efforts into GTE, GTLM, and GT3. It’s answer for that is the new SCG 004S—a mid-engine road-legal supercar built to go racing.
James Glickenhaus is fun because instead of just collecting cool old road-legal race cars, he decided to start making some of his own. Now he’s gone from a Miles Davis-rescuing movie producer to an official government-approved manufacturer, and he just priced his Nordschleife-conquering SCG003 at a cool $2 million.
Jeff Westphal did the unthinkable when he won pole position at this year’s Nürburgring 24 Hours. He became the first American in the race’s 45-year history to win pole position and he did it with an American-owned team, in a car dreamt up by an American. All while competing against teams supported by major…
Wealthy American supercar nut James Glickenhaus is sick and tired of everyone’s unreliable Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time claims. To settle this for good, Glickenhaus wants to launch a “Road Cup” for road-legal cars to determine which street-legal car has the fastest ‘ring time once and for all.
It was a sad day indeed when Gumpert, the maker of, er, eccentric-looking supercars, went bankrupt. The resurrected company, Apollo Automobil, showed off a rather pointy Arrow concept in March. Who else is going to have a hand in making that car? None other than the space-time-ripping racing barons at Scuderia Cameron…
The roadgoing version of the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003C race car is here! Kind of. But it’s already claimed to pull 2G’s in a corner.
In all my years at racetracks around the world, there’s one button I’ve never pressed. But this weekend, I pushed it, and I pushed it, and I kept pushing it until I could push it no more.
This Corvette Z06 with the Z07 package and all the options was close to $100,000 when new, which doesn’t exactly make it the ideal ride of the proletariat masses you think of when you picture a Bernie Sanders supporter. So what the hell is going on here?
Victor Muller is a lawyer by trade, but that might be one of the main reasons why his Dutch supercar company Spyker is still around. Yet he’s also the designer of stunning cars such as the new C8 Preliator, and a guy who refers to himself as the ultimate customer of his own car. Here’s why that all makes perfect sense.
Here’s James Glickenhaus driving his Daytona-winner 1967 Ferrari P3/4 with his racing team’s Program Director Paolo Garella in the passenger seat in what I assume must be New York traffic. Photo credit: Paolo Migliorini Brizzolari
Some automotive publications are happy bringing their audiences nothing but sleep-inducing reviews of press cars, dispatches from shrimp-filled junkets, repackaged press releases and bone dry industry news. At Jalopnik, we do things a little differently.
The Scuderia Glickenhaus Nürburgring 24 Hours competing racecar just set a new lap record at the Hockenheim ring by a whole four seconds over the previous record-holder — a Porsche 918 Spyder.
When a group of maniacs with backgrounds at McLaren, Porsche, Pininfarina and more come to the conclusion that all of Britain’s road-legal track cars aren’t good enough, they almost have no choice but to make something better. Meet Elemental Cars and their Rp1 prototype, which is an attempt at doing just that.
Racing game Assetto Corsa’s Dream Pack 2 of add-on content is pretty special: not only does it include the Circuit of Catalunya, but now you can race a car with the Jalopnik bump, right there, in the game. We’re right there on the Scuderia Glickenhaus SCG 003’s rear fender.
