James Glickenhaus is an investment mogul, but he is most famously known in the car community for his amazing collection of vehicles, most notably the custom P4/5 Pininfarina, and his racing team, known as Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus. In the past, SCG has raced the P 4/5 Competitzione racecar in the grueling 24 hours of Nurburgring. Now it has been just revealed that James Glickenhaus has another special set of cars that he will debut at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show.

Dubbed the SCG 003S and the SCG 003C, this absolutely astonishing car will debut in two forms; there will be a road-legal version (Stradale), and a race version (Competitzione). Rather than keeping the cars to himself, this will be the first time that Glickenhaus will make cars to sell to customers. This is because rather than using a chassis from an existing car, as he had done with the P 4/5 and P 4/5 Competitizione, this will be a car that has been completely engineered and designed from the ground up.

From the details given, there will be two SC 003C racecars entered in the 2015 24 Hours of Nurburgring competition. It will be powered by a heavily modified version of Honda’s twin-turbo 3.5L V6, in this guise it will be producing 530 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, and will weigh 1,350 kg, or just under 3000 lbs.  The car’s exterior design seems to have taken inspiration from LMP1 cars, with a massive rear wing, rear diffuser, and wrap-around body work that is quite lean.

The SCG 003S road car will have a modular design that will allow for various engines to fit within the bay. From the scarce details, it seems that the engine choices range from a de-tuned version of the same Honda twin-turbo 3.5L V6, to a twin-turbo V12. Glickenhaus even says that one configuration will rival the Koenigsegg One:1 power-to-weight ratio of 1 horsepower for every kilogram the car weighs.

As expected, the prices for James Glickenhaus’ new cars will be astronomically high. He has been quoted as saying that the road car will start at around 2.1 million euros, and the race version to cost an extra 750,000 to 1 million euros.

The Geneva show is promising to be very exciting this year with many exotics to debut. However, we are waging that the SCG 003 twins will attract quite the crowd during the show.
