Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus introduces SCG003S

The SCG003S is the Scuderia\'s first street-legal car.

Wealthy American car collector Jim Glickenhaus has introduced a street-legal version of the SCG003C.

The road-legal model is known as the SCG003S; the "s" stands for Stradale. Like the track-only model, the S wears a highly-aerodynamic design that borrows styling cues such as a wrap-around windshield and a full-width rear wing from the cars that compete in the LMP1 class of the grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans. Its body is crafted entirely out of carbon fiber in order to keep weight in check.

While the track-bound model uses a Honda-sourced V6, the street-legal variant relies on a 4.4-liter V8 mounted behind the passenger compartment and tuned to generate 750 horsepower. The engine's origins haven't been revealed, but the best-known 4.4-liter eight-cylinder in the industry is stamped with a BMW parts number. Regardless, the V8 sends the SCG003S from zero to 62 mph in less than three seconds and on to a top speed of 217 mph.

The SCG003S is scheduled to make its public debut during next year's edition of the Geneva Auto Show, according to Motor1, and production will kick off the following summer. The car will be assembled by hand by Maniffatura Automobili Torino in Italy. Pricing information and production figures haven't been announced yet, but Glickenhaus warns the SCG003S will be a low-volume model.
