Race-bred track car tailored for the the streets
A new supercar will soon be prowling the streets after Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) officially revealed the all-new SCG003S (Stradale). Slated to make its public debut at 2017 Geneva Motor Show, it gets similar styling cues and performance from its track-oriented sibling, the SCG003C, along with a highly-tuned V8 that will allow the car to go beyond 300 km/h.
“It’s the culmination of along-held dream to finally see our amazing race car born again as a road car, using all the know-how we have taken from competing in international races and putting it onto the road. This will be a collectable car like no other, capturing the spirit of the road racers that have defined automotive history during the heyday of grand touring,” said James Glickenhaus, proprietor of SCG.
It's the direct descendant of the track car SCG003C (Competizione) and packs the latest technology available in supercars.
The SCG003S sits on a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and is hand-built in Italy by Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT). At the helm of MAT is Paola Garella who was instrumental in the production of such cars like the Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina.
SCG claimed it is the fastest cornering car to date thanks to advanced aerodynamics. With it, SCG said that it can generate more than 2Gs (gravity) through the corners, similar to what prototype racecars can produce.
Originally powered by a V12 engine in concept form, the production SCG003S is now propelled by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that pushes out 760 PS. It can sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in less than three seconds and has a top speed of 350 km/h.
Personalization options can be specified for the SCG003S which will include competition-derived interior fit and finish, as well as custom mechanicals for a more tailored driving expereince.
Only a limited number examples of the SCG003S will be manufactured come mid 2017.
