Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus announces the unveiling of its latest road and race cars SCG 003C (Competizione) and SCG 003S (Stradale)
Pont Saint Martin, 26 February 2015 – Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus will unveil its SCG 003 new model at the Geneva Motorshow that will open to the public on March 5th. On its stand the team will present one of the two race cars that the team is preparing for racing and the Stradale version.
The following is an excerpt from the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus press release, issued on February 26, 2015:
SCG 003 is a completely new GT, inspired by the latest design and technologies developed in the LMP1/LMP2 series. The surfaces of the car have been shaped by the combined work of the talented styling team from Granstudio led by Lowie Vermeersch and Goran Popovic, together with the team of a young group of engineers from Podium Engineering supported by Paolo Catone, the father of many successful sport racing cars.
The all carbon fiber structure has been designed to achieve maximum rigidity and flexibility in packaging, ease of maintenance and safety. The rear carbon fiber frame holds the suspension pick-up points and can be easily exchanged to allow the use of different engines on the same platform. The Hewland gearbox, with paddle shift, is a strong and reliable unit coupled, in the race version, with a V6 3,5L TT developed by Autotecnica Motori and derived from the HPD Honda V6 engine. The road version will have a V6TT engine that the team is specifically developing.
The chassis has a very refined suspension layout with front and rear push-rods.
The racecar uses Bosch Motorsport Electronics and will race with Dunlop Tires.
With minimal differences between the road and the race versions, SCG 003 promises to deliver the experience of a modern, easy to drive race car, with down-force and engine torque that are unknown in the supercar world.
The BOP rules will balance the car’s performance during the race, but the car’s true potential will be revealed with the emotions that only real race cars can give. Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is developing a racing program that will enable the owners to race their cars throughout the world.
The race version of SCG 003 can be easily owner converted to a road version should an owner so desire.
Inspired by strategic vision of Jim, the team has set the fundamental project guidelines and performance targets, that during the past 18 months of the project development have kept the team focused on its final objective: to deliver a car that could be as iconic as P4/5 and as new and innovative as the product of a major car manufacturer.
The result of this effort is SCG 003C/S a race/road car that will be proven at the Nurburgring 24H, a car that will drive on the street of New York, a car that promises emotions and unique experiences.
