James Glickenhaus is back with a new supercar, and this time, a street-legal version will actually be available to the public. The project, named the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003 has two versions, the SCG003S (above) and the SCG003C (below).

The “S” stands for Stradale and represents the road-going version. The “C” stands for Competizione and is indicative of the race version. Both the chassis and body of the SCG003 are constructed of carbon fiber for ultra low weight.

In the engine bay is a twin-turbo V6 engine that is paired with a Hewland paddle-shift gearbox. Suspension wise, it has purshrods set up in both the front and rear.

If you know your racing, the livery on the Competizione should look familiar. It is a tribute to the MkIV Ford GT40 in 1967. The LMP1-inspired SCG003C will compete in the GT class and will first appear in the Nurburgring 24 in May.
 
Maybe the coolest part of these cars is that they’re built so you can drive the car to the track, convert into race mode, compete, and flip back to cruise back home. Glickenhaus wanted to bring it back to the old ways of racing. Both cars will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week, and the road car will start to be delivered in late 2015.
