Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus reveals Hand Built SCG003S To Be Launched at 2017 Geneva Motor Show

American sports car company Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has revealed never before seen images of its first production model, the SCG003S, which will be launched at next year's Geneva Motor Show.

The all-new road car is a direct descendant of the SCG003C race car, which has won its class at the world-famous Nürburgring 24 Hours: renowned as the toughest endurance race in the world, held on the epic Nordschleife circuit in Germany.

The lineage is clear to see in the model name designations: 'S' stands for 'Stradale' whereas as 'C' denotes 'Competizione', in homage to the legendary Italian road racers of the 1960s, which were equally at home on the track as on the road.

While the inspiration behind the car is classical, the SCG003S is packed full of the latest technology, incorporating the lessons learned from the cutting-edge of competition against the most renowned manufacturers in motorsport.

In particular, the SCG003S promises to be the fastest-cornering car on sale, thanks to advanced aerodynamic downforce that allows it to generate more than 2g through corners: similar levels to sports prototypes.

The car is hand-built in Italy by Manifattura Automobili Torino, using an integral carbon fibre chassis powered by a 4.4-litre twin turbo engine that develops in excess of 750 horsepower. The Italian firm is headed by Paolo Garella, who has been responsible for a number of iconic cars over the years such as the Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina.

SCG brand creator James Glickenhaus said: "It's the culmination of a long-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."

A high degree of personalisation will be possible on the car, which will be produced to order in limited numbers from the middle of next year. This includes the competition-derived interior fit and finish, as well as mechanical customisation in order to ensure a tailor-made driving experience for every customer. With its unique looks and downforce, the SCG003S elevates the hypercar to new levels of performance and driving enjoyment.

The top speed of the SCG003S will be in excess of 350kph, with 0-100kph covered in less than three seconds: not far off the figures of a Formula 1 car. This incredible performance is directly driven by the SCG003S's sporting heritage, with development of the road car following on from success in competition.

Paolo Garella said: "We are delighted to reveal these exciting images of the SCG003S before we officially launch the car in Geneva next year. Our philosophy in building this car has been uncompromising: to take the most exhilarating aspects of a racing car and put them on the road. The resulting product is something that has never been seen before, with unprecedented levels of downforce and driver engagement."
