Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus 006 is an ode to old school topless motoring
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, while more known for their racing team's successful stints at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring with the bespoke SCG 003C, appears keen to expand their fleet of unique models. The American manufacturer is now looking into making other models that would entice the odd eccentric millionaire – and the new SCG 006 appears to fit the bill to a tee.
Modeled as a 'retro sports car', the SCG 006 looks mainly like a Ferrari 275 without its roof. With its front end inspired from the prancing horse, the rear buttresses look to be taken from the shape of an A/C Cobra. From the looks of it, most of the 006's styling is inspired from the '60s era – giving it the profile of a sporting cabriolet from the day.
Of course, SCG can't get away with fitting outdated internals in this day and age. A 6.2-liter V8 from a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will make its way beneath the long bonnet, and it's expected to push 650 PS towards the rear wheels by way of a six-speed manual transmission. For discerning customers, an automatic transmission with paddle shifters may also be offered as an option.
SCG is serious enough to push through with production of the 006 that they're already taking deposits for it. Asking for 10% of a $250,000 price tag, the company expects slots to be filled up quite quickly. In order to push the retro coupe to production, SCG plans to utilize the new NHTSA low-volume manufacturing rules. This means the 006 will come standard with a 17-digit VIN and will be street-legal in 49 states. SCG also has a network of dealerships arranged to sell and offer the 006 with a warranty.
Details on production have yet to surface, but SCG cars will be expected to come out from their plant in Sleepy Hollow, New York. Following the 006 may well be a coupe version as well as a GT4-Spec version.
