Back in 2019, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus threw down the gauntlet, announcing its intentions to participate in the Baja Boot a the Baja 1000 in the stock SUV class, the 004 GT3 and GT4S at the 2020 24 Hours of Nurburgring, and to compete in the 2020/2021 World Endurance Championships and Le Mans in its 007 hypercar. At the time, the SCG 007 Le Mans LMP1 Hypercar was little more than initial renderings, but now the hypercar is a reality.
James Glickenhaus recently posted photos to social media of the 007 with the caption, “Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war.” In addition to revealing the car’s livery, which includes a red body with white details on the nose and tail, Glickenhaus also revealed that the car will be powered by a 3.0-liter twin turbo V6 engine. “As the rules have evolved, we think only makes more sense,” said Glickenhaus in response to rumors that the 007 would be a hybrid. “We can make max allowed HP from our ICE, and our powerplant will be lighter and less complex.”
SCG has also promised to sell “a limited number of road-legal 007s.” No pricing has been announced, but the 007 is expected to go for around $1 million. That price tag will go to good use, as SCG plans to follow Ford’s example from way back and use the money from the sales to fund its racing program.
As for the 007, Glickenhaus has made his intentions perfectly clear: “This is for America. For Briggs , Carroll and Jim Hall. For all of us. SCG will operate at cost for this program and will fund it no matter what even if it’s just one car racing against the World. . . . It’s been 50 years since a car built in America finished First Overall at Le Mans. We aim to change that.”
