History

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, was founded in 2004 in New York City by film producer and entrepreneur James Glickenhaus. The goal was to develop limited, low-volume, high-performance racing cars for the Nürburgring 24 Hours races.[4] In the first years, a professional team[5] took part in competitions using modified Ferrari constructions.

In 2010, the Ferrari P4/5, built in one piece on a special order, served as a reference point for the work on the first proprietary SCG construction,[6] the initial specification and concept of which was presented in September 2012.[7] Pre-production prototypes entered their final testing phase in December 2014,[8] and finally made their debut in February 2015 as the SCG 003 racing vehicle and the SCG 003S road hypercar.[9]

For the production of both vehicles, cooperation was established with the Italian design studio and sports car manufacturer MAT, which lent its production lines in Turin.[10] In 2017, a plan to launch the production of another civilian car called 004S,[11] was presented, which finally went into production in 2020. In the same year, a racing variant, SCG 004C was produced for competition.[12]

At the end of 2020, SCG presented its first car with a completely different concept in the form of the massive, road-performance off-road vehicle SCG Boot.[13] In 2021, another race car called the SCG 007 was presented in the Le Mans Hypercar racing category, during the premiere of which it was announced that a series variant called SCG 007S would also be built.[14]

Vehicles

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus currently offers five types of cars,[15] the SCG 003, SCG 004, SCG Boot, SCG 007, and the SCG 008 kit car.[16][17][18][19][20] The SCG 006 model is no longer listed on the company's website.[21]
