His SCG 003 will feature a carbon-fiber chassis, but that’s about all that is certain regarding this automotive indulgence.
Glickenhaus plans to enter the completed car in next year’s Nurburgring 24-hour race, and the latest report from Motor Authority claims this version will use a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 loosely based on a Honda Performance Development design.
However, that’s just the start. The road-going SCG 003 will reportedly pack a twin-turbocharged V12. Combined with the lightweight chassis, Glickenhaus believes it could offer a Koenigsegg One:1-rivalling power-to-weight ratio of one horsepower per kilogram (2.2 pounds).
However, unlike the One:1 and hyper-exotic cars like the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918 Spyder, the SCG 003 will have a bona fide racing pedigree. The racing and road versions are undergoing development simultaneously, although strict rules may keep the car out of a lot of race series.
How much will all of that power and pedigree cost? The SCG 003 is expected to start at roughly $2.7 million for the road car, while the racing version could cost up to $1.32 million more (only two examples are planned so far).
The SCG 003 will initially be offered in the supercar-happy Middle East, China, and Europe. U.S. sales are a possibility as well.
