2019 SCG 004S: This Is Glickenhaus’s Volume Road/Race Car

2019 SCG 004S

James Glickenhaus has come a long way since 2005, when he first told Andrea Pininfarina about his wish to create a modern homage to his Ferrari P3/4. Based on an Enzo, the P 4/5 was ready 18 months later, only to become Pininfarina’s most well-known modern creation.

It wasn’t long before SCG built another Ferrari-based supercar, but this time, it was to go racing at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring. By 2011, the P 4/5 Competizione evolved into a hybrid, only to continue racing for years to come. But then came the grand idea to built a new car from the ground up, and the result was even more speed.

Developed under the watchful eyes Chief Engineer Olivier Thomas, who’s resumĂ© includes the McLaren P1, the SCG 004S is a mid-engined supercar built in America. It comes with a gated-six speed manual (or an optional paddle shift), a five-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 650 horsepower and 531 ft.-lb. of torque, a center driving position, three seats and a weight figure of 2600 lbs.

Thanks to Head Designer Michael Young, it’s quite a sight too. And this time around, you only need to fork out a minimum of $400,000 for the entire package, starting with a ten percent deposit.
