PostHeaderIcon James Glickenhaus' Idea Of A Nürburgring Lap Time Competition Is Never Happening

Say what you will about James Glickenhaus’ braggadocious tendencies, but the man is good for some headlines. He was confident enough to launch his own car company. He was confident enough to compete at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring. And he’s confident enough to call his own shot at the production car lap record at the Nürburgring. Yes, the same man who recently unveiled the intense SCG 003S at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show believes that his newest creation can lap the Green Hell in just 6:30, which would be 27 seconds faster than the current record-holder, the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Glickenhaus is apparently so confident in his road-going SCG 003S that he told Car and Driver in Geneva his intention to create a competition at the iconic German racing circuit to determine, once and for all, which production car is the fastest around the track. Not stopping at simply proposing the competition, the man behind the P4/5 also wants the competition to be held immediately after the qualifying stage of the 24 Hours of Nürburgring with the added caveats that automakers who participate in it are required drive the cars from Cologne to the Nürburgring using only a single set of tires and then using the same set of tires during the competition.

He does admit that it would be too late to hold the competition this year since the 24 Hours of Nürburgring is scheduled to begin on May 25. But if other automakers get on board and Nürburgring authorities give the green light, Glickenhaus believes that the competition could have its inaugural run in 2018.

The proposal is interesting, but don’t expect it to happen anytime soon, even if Glickenhaus champions it to the high heavens. Between getting automakers to agree on participating and having the blessing of track officials, there are a lot of holes that Glickenhaus needs to jump through before it can even get people to take his proposal seriously. Then again, he might just be doing all of this because he has a car he thinks can win the whole thing.

Whatever the case may be, this is as good an example of how the mind of James Glickenhaus works. He may not say the right things all the time, but when he does say something, people tend to listen, no matter how strange his statements may be.

PostHeaderIcon James Glickenhaus' Dreams Of Supercar Supremacy Lives On In The SCG003S

You can’t fault James Glickenhaus for dreaming big. The man, after all, is known in automotive circles for pushing the envelope in ways that very few people with his means are inclined to do. It started when he brought to the world the P4/5, a Pininfarina-created, Ferrari Enzo-bodied racer that enjoyed tremendous success in races all over the world. From there, Glickenhaus set out on expanding his lineup of performance machines, first with the SCG003C before following that up with the SCG003CS. Now, the third iteration of Glickenhaus’ vision is making its presence felt at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The model is called the SCG0003S, and it’s an 800-horsepower, road-going supercar of unbridled fury.

The debut of the SCG003S will create headlines. That much I can guarantee considering its capabilities on the both the road and track. Glickenhaus himself says that his new pride and joy is capable of blasting around the Nürburgring in 6:30, a time that would easily make it the new lap king of the track. By almost all metrics, the SCG003S is going to be a handful to deal with for all the right reasons.

But there’s also something more meaningful about the SCG003S, and it has very little to do with form or function. The supercar, for all intents and purposes, is the culmination of an ambitious goal set out by its creator when he first thought of the idea of asking Pininfarina to rebid his Ferrari Enzo and turn it into the P4/5. It seems like a long time ago, but through grit, hard work, and determination, Glickenhaus is well on his way to achieving his goals.

Make no mistake, though; the man is far from settled. The SCG003S, as awesome as it looks and sounds, isn’t Glickenhaus’ end-game. Once the car is launched, the plan is to sell at least three cars a year at a price of $1.8 million for each unit, all while setting the long-term goal of competing in the GTE category of the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the SCG003. Think the SCG003 would be out of its depth in Le Mans? Yeah, try telling James Glickenhaus that.

PostHeaderIcon SCG 003S Coming To Geneva; Will Lap Nürburgring in 6:30

When you’ve got a man like Jim Glickenhaus working on a new car, and then hear word that it will be able to lap the Nürburgring 6:30, you know things just got serious. And boy is that the case when it comes to the SCG 003, which will also make its debut in less than a month at the Geneva Auto Show. Oh, that Nürburgring run, by the way, will beat out the Porsche 918 Spyder, which – coincidentally – holds the record for a production car on the ‘Ring, by about 27 seconds. That’s a pretty bold statement, but there are some figures there to back it up, believe it or not.

On top of that insanely bold statement, the SCG 003 is street legal and will reportedly make the run using street tires. It’s BMW-derived 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 that pumps out 800 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. And, while that figure seems like it should be a bit higher if it’s really going to break the record by that much, the SCG is said to tip the scale at less than 2,900 pounds including a full tank of gas. The sprint to 60 mph is said to come in less than three seconds, while top speed will be higher than 217 mph. Able to pull two G in the corners, and generate more than 1,500 pounds of downforce at speeds above 155 mph, this thing is the true definition of a rocket on wheels.

Keep in mind that the SCG003 already holds one record, Back in 2015, it was participating in a race on the ‘Ring, but both models on the track were black flagged for being too loud. Be that as it may, Glickenhaus stuck around after the fact and posted a record time of 6:42, which made it the fourth-fastest car (including road-legal, track-only, and race cars) to lap that the ‘Ring at the time. This car has a strong pedigree, and we’re certainly on the edge of our seats waiting to see what happens the next time the road-legal SCG 003 hits the track with a record time in its sights.

PostHeaderIcon Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus Unveils Production-Ready SCG003S

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus just released a series of images showing off its latest top-shelf performance monster – the SCG003S. The first three letters are a nod to the car’s creator, while the “003” signifies that this is the third model that SCG has generated. The most important piece here is that final “S,” which stands for Stradale. Long story short, this hyperspeed spaceship is 100 percent street legal, which is kinda crazy when you start digging into the specs. Here’s an example – how does more than 2 G’s of grip sound?

Based on the Ferrari Enzo, the SCG003S joins its more hardcore track brethren as a true road-worthy supercar, complete with a full interior. Performance, however, seems unhindered.

Built by hand by the Italian firm Manufattura Automobili Torino, the SCG003S employs a carbon fiber chassis, plus big, purposeful aero similar to its race-special siblings. The huge downforce (over 1,500 pounds at 155 mph) helps this thing create ungodly amounts of stick, generating over 2 G’s of lateral acceleration at speed. That’s more than any other road car on the market, by the way.

The rest of the package is just as unhinged, with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 dumping more than 750 horsepower and roughly 600 pound-feet of torque to the rear axle. Routing the muscle is a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, while curb weight is kept at just 1,200 kg (2,646 pounds).

With that kind of power-to-weight ratio, you’re looking a sprint to 62 mph in less than three seconds, while top speed clocks in at an estimated 217 mph.

Throwing the anchor are carbon ceramic brakes, while owners will have a chance to tune and tweak various settings for maximum at-the-limit drivability.

Look for the SCG003S to make its big public debut at the Geneva Motor Show next year.

PostHeaderIcon Watch SCG003 Crashing At Nurburgring: Video

The 2015 Nurburgring 24 Hours endurance race is now written into the history books, but one entry that didn’t make it to the checkered was the yellow #40 Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus 003, seen in this video eating a wall with frightening velocity.

The #40 SCG003 was one of the first to fall victim to the ‘Ring 24 Hours, pirouetting at the Kesslechen section at approximately 120 mph during a qualifying session, with variable weather, poor visibility, and an unforgiving chassis all conspiring to thwart even those most talented of hot shoes. American racing driver Ken Dobson was at the helm, and reportedly was cleared of any injuries after admittance to the circuit’s medical center.

“The car protected him in a huge crash,” said Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus on its Facebook page after the shunt. “We’ll rebuild her. She will race again. Her owner has a lot of heart. Chassis 001 is going to race for her sister and then drive to Villa d’Este next Sunday. As a great American once said: We’ve just begun to fight.”

The second SCG003 #9 car, owned by Glickenhaus himself, managed to fight till the end, slotting into ninth midrace and earning a best lap of 8:26 before finishing in 35th despite numerous mechanical issues and a three-minute penalty for a speed-limit violation.

The Nurburgring, also known as “The Green Hell,” is universally acknowledged as one of the most difficult circuits in the world. It’s nearly 13 miles of technically demanding corners and over 1,000 feet of elevation change, with an estimated three to 12 fatalities recorded every year. Over 30 cars were forced to retire from this year’s event.

PostHeaderIcon SCG003 Crashes At Nurburgring; Withdraws From This Weekend's 24 Hours Race

After suffering a 120 mph shunt during night qualifying for the 2015 Nürburgring 24 hours, the yellow No. 40 Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003C has withdrawn from the race. Highly experienced American driver Ken Dobson was behind the wheel at the time and was cleared of any injuries after being admitted to the circuit medical center.

“The car protected him in a huge crash. We’ll rebuild her. She will race again,” said Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus on its Facebook page. “Her owner has a lot of heart. Chassis 001 is going to race for her sister and then drive to Villa d’Este next Sunday. As a great American once said: We’ve just begun to fight.”

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus still has one bullet left in the chamber in the form of the No. 9 chassis 001 SCG003C, which is the bare carbon-fiber car owned by Glickenhaus himself. The No. 9 has proven to be very competitive so far. After making it through to the final 30 qualifying round (and earning the all-important flashing blue light), drivers Lauck Manuel, Franchitti Marino, Jahn David and Mailleux Franck will start from 24th place. The No. 26 Marc VDS BMW Z4 GT3 starts from the front.

PostHeaderIcon James Glickenhaus Wants To Race The SCG 003 At Le Mans

Jim Glickenhaus’ 2016 SCG 003 is an incredible car. Built from the ground up from carbon fiber and other lightweight materials, the SCG 003 is arguably the pinnacle of modern supercars, although it doesn’t have the brand cachet of similar products from Ferrari, Lamborghini or McLaren. In fact, “similar” isn’t the word I should be using here, because the SCG 003 and the LaFerrari (random pick) have nothing in common besides the market they compete in. Glickenhaus designed the SCG 003 like no one else does today. It’s the type of supercar you can drive to the track and turn into a full-fledged racer by changing the rear wing, the diffuser, and the splitter before hitting the course.

If there’s one supercar the SCG 003 can be compared to, that would have to be the McLaren F1, which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with only minor changes from the standard road car.

There are plenty of reasons why Jim designed the car this way, and one of them is that he likes to race. The SCG 003 already made its track debut in a VLN race at Nurburgring, but was black-flagged for being too cool… er… too loud, and Glickenhaus now plans to race it at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring.

As if that’s not cool enough, Glickenhaus wants to take things up a notch and tackle the greatest endurance event of all: the 24 Hours of Le Mans. That may sound a bit wild given the car isn’t homologated as an outright GT3, but Jim says it’s possible.

PostHeaderIcon SCG003 Smashes Nurburgring Lap Record

It was just a few days ago when Glickenhaus’ new SCG 003 supercar hit the Nurburgring track for its first ever race of the year. Unfortunately for the Hollywood entrepreneur, both his cars got black-flagged for being too loud. As ludicrous as that may sound, the SCG 003 wouldn’t have finished the race anyway, as the VLN event was stopped a few laps later when a Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 crashed into a group of spectators, killing one. A case of bad luck? Of course, but the American team just returned to share some amazing news. As it turns out, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus didn’t leave the ’Ring after the race, but scheduled a few runs in an attempt to set a new track record. And so it did, as the supercar needed only 6:42 to lap the Nordschleife.

The big announcement came via the company’s Instagram account, and although there’s no video to back the claim yet, the SCG 033’s time is mind-boggling. The American supercar not only smashed the Zonda R’s 6:47-minute benchmark, but also demolished the Radical SR8 LM’s 6:48-minute lap, the official record for production, street-legal vehicles as of 2015.

Making things that much more amazing is that the SCG 003 is now the fourth-fastest vehicle, be it road-legal, track-only or race car, to ever lap the Nordschleife. The all-time (racing) lap record sits at 6:11.13, as established by Stefan Bellof in a Porsche 956 during qualifying for the 1983 1,000km of Nurburgring.

PostHeaderIcon Glickenhaus' SCG 003 Black-Flagged And Tragedy At Nurburgring

Jim Glickenhaus’ incredible SCG 003 supercar made its highly anticipated debut at this weekend’s VLN race at the Nurburgring, but the event didn’t go as planned for the Scuderia’s duo of Ferrari-based racers. That’s because both cars were black-flagged due to… exceeding the race noise regulations. In short, they were too loud for the ’Ring, if that makes any sense. The SCGs, which had been entered in the newly created SPX Class, were running 6th and 18th overall before the black flag forced them into the pits.

Unfortunately, that’s far from being the worst news coming from the race. The German track lived up to its “Green Hell” nickname once again when the No. 23 Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 driven by Jann Mardenborough took off at the Flugplatz and crashed into a group of spectators, killing one of them and leaving many injured. The tragic accident brought an end to the race and prompted the organizers to make a temporary change of the circuit’s licence to prevent the SP7 to SPX classes from racing on the Nordschleife. This includes all GT3 and GT4 cars, as well as special projects such as the SCG 003.

Both the FIA and the German authorities are investigating Saturday’s crash, and it is not clear if the 24 Hours of Nurburgring race, scheduled to start on May 14th, will run as planned. We’ll be back with more info as soon as we have it.

PostHeaderIcon SCG 003

If the name SCG doesn’t ring a bell for you its only because up until now you were more familiar with the “James Glickenhaus.” Yes, the developer of the famous Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina and the race version, the P4/5 Competizione. SCG – or Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus – is his personal brand that will hit the market with two new models: a road car called 003 and the race version, 003C. Why 003? Simply because it will be the third model developed by Glickenhaus.

In a recent post Glickenhaus, said that the company already started to work on the engineering, aero and design, but unfortunately you shouldn’t expect to see the new model until later in 2015.

Updated 02/27/2015: James Glickenhaus revealed the official details of the SCG 003 supercar with just a few days before the official debut in Geneva.
