Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is a small-scale American sportscar maker that has been making strides in the world of motorsport these past few years (click here to read some of our earlier stories on SCG ) The company has now commenced SCG 004 testing. The 004 is the SCG’s latest supercar and forms the basis for a GT-series racer.
The SCG 004 testing in the video below is the race-ready 004C. It is the model that SCG plans to take to the 24 Hours of Nurburgring, which takes place in May. The racecar is powered by a naturally-aspirated 6,2-litre V8 engine, which you can listen to the video below. Power is delivered to the rear axle by an Xtrac sequential transmission. Interestingly, the SCG 004 has a central driving position.

James Glickenhaus told Sportscar365, “It can’t rev very high, but GT3 engines can’t rev very high anyway with the restrictors. You get a very low centre of gravity and it’s a very compact engine, so there’s a tremendous amount of space around it to blow air around and keep it cool.”
Two road-going variants of the SCG 004 will be built. One will be a slightly ‘softer model’ while the other is a more hard-core 004 CS that is track-focused. Both cars will be powered by GM-sourced V8 engines fitted with superchargers. The former model will have 485 kW while the latter will boast 670 kW. The road-cars will be available with both manual and dual-clutch automatic transmission options.
The SCG 004 testing session took place at the Cremona circuit in Italy. It will contest its first race in March in the Experimental Class in the NLS series.
