Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has revealed new renders of the hypercar with which it hopes to contest the World Endurance Championship and the Le Mans 24 Hours.
Boutique sportscar maker Glickenhaus, whose main racing efforts up to now have been in the Nurburgring 24 Hours and the VLN series, first revealed its intentions to be part of the WEC's new hypercar era with the SCG 007 in 2018.
The American manufacturer released its initial renderings in September 2019 and has now disclosed more information about the project, including new images of the car that is aiming to join Toyota, Aston Martin and ByKolles for the start of the 2020/21 WEC season at Silverstone in September.
The SCG 007 is slated to weigh in at 1100kg and be powered by a three-litre twin-turbo V6 engine developing 840bhp, to be supplied by an as-yet unknown external partner.
Italian-based organisation Podium Advanced Engineering, which is also involved in the running of the Glickenhaus VLN squad, has been charged with designing the new machine.
A timeline has been established for the creation of the car, with the build scheduled for August and a first shakedown in September, the same month in which the 2020/21 season is due to begin - casting doubt on whether the team will be on the grid at Silverstone.
Several key personnel for the project have been named, including former Toro Rosso Formula 1 chief designer Mark Tatham (below, left) who will act as chief engineer.
Luca Ciancetti, currently the head of Podium Advanced Engineering's Automotive Engineering and Motorsport arms, will serve as team principal, working "side by side" with the company's eponymous founder Jim Glickenhaus and his son Jesse, the managing director.
Glickenhaus is also working on another car that will make its debut this year, the SCG 004C, which will replace the SGC 003 as the marque's Nurburgring 24 Hours challenger this year.
Like its predecessor, which took a shock pole for the German enduro in 2017, it will compete in the SP-X class for non-homologated cars built to the FIA's GT3 regulations.
