Nearly 50-years have passed since Steve McQueen last raced his original Boot across the Mexican Baja desert for competition, but modern bespoke automotive manufacturer Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is here to continue the journey and create history once again.
As an intricate model to the SCG line-up, the SCG Boot, is a modern road-legal rendition that pays homage to the original McQueen vehicle. Designed and built in North America, with the support of Armada Engineering, a fabrication facility located in Chatsworth, California, SCG motor company has been developing the SCG Boot over the past seventeen months. Each SCG Boot is fabricated and assembled by hand, a tedious craftsman-like process that has now come to fruition.
Powered by a supercharged 6.2 liter LT4 engine, and accented by a wildly pronounced exhaust system, the 2-door race version hosts FOX coil-over racing suspension that offers up to 22-inches of suspension travel for a set of 37” BFGoodrich Baja tires. While the interior is loaded with the amenities of air-conditioning, power windows, GPS navigation and a 45-gallon fuel tank with an estimated 400-mile on highway driving range, making the Boot is capable for off-road racing or on road excursions.
SCG Motor Company will offer the Boot in 3 versions including a 2-door Baja race edition, along with 2-door and 4-door road versions, and are currently accepting customer orders for production through Glickenhaus North American Racing (www.glickenhausnar.com).
Kicking off the reveal at Monterey Car Week will begin with an inaugural drive to the Quail motorsports gathering in the city of Carmel, California where the SCG Boot will be displayed during the day time of Friday, August 16th (Quail Lodge & Golf Club, 8205 Valley Greens Dr, Carmel, California 93923 ). The SCG Boot will then be driven to Weathertech Raceway, Laguna Seca (1021 Monterey Salinas Hwy, Salinas, CA 93908) for display on Saturday, August 17th and throughout mid-day on Sunday, August 18th.
