For the Scuderia SCG003S to claim it is a supercar, it would have to have some pretty hefty evidence. This particular car has the muscle to back up its claim.
Many supercars are designed first as street legal vehicles, then they are modified, suped up, and enhanced in order for them to perform on the track. It’s kind of backward engineering if you’re looking for a true supercar. That’s where Scuderia differs. Their SCG003S actually started out as a car meant for the track—and not just any track, but for endurance races, like the Nürburgring 24-hour race. What Scuderia came up with was the SCG003C. The difference between the C and the S is just the changes needed to make that racecar street legal.
And it looks like it only barely made that designation. The SCG003S has the aerodynamic look you would expect from a racecar. It also has the power. The twin turbo 4.4 liter engine delivers 750 horsepower, with 800 Nm of torque. It comes in as a featherweight at 1.300kg. With that much power and that low of a weight, it stays true to its racetrack origin—its max speed is 350 km/h, with an acceleration of 0-100 km/h in three seconds.
While this monster may have been born on the track, coming to the street has its perks. It still has that racecar vibe, just with more finesse and elegance.
