The SCG 007C Could Bring the U.S.A. a Podium at Le Mans for the first time in 50 years

James Glickenhaus, owner of one of the most amazing car collections in the world and an avid racing fan, says his team’s latest creation, the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG 007 built to compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship’s Hypercar category, can win the 24 Hours of Le Mans outright. The car will also spawn a road-going version of which some 20 to 30 units will be built depending on customer interest. Glickenhaus announced that the car will be powered only by its internal combustion engine although a hybrid system was on the table at the early stages of development. The SCG 007 is set to debut in 2020.

Ever since we first wrote about SCG’s ambition to take on the world’s best at Le Mans, all the way back in July of 2018, the American team/manufacturer has been using its Instagram profile as the main place to post updates on the development of both the 007 and the 004, a volume sports car that’s bound to be turned into a GT3-like race car, similar to SCG’s first car, the 003 that has competed in the VLN, the 24 Hours of the Nurburgring, the International GT Open Series, and the 24 Hours Series.
