This Concept Sports Car Is the 650-HP Throwback We’ve Always Wanted
It’s like a classic Ferrari and Shelby had a baby.
What exactly is this beauty you see before you?
The experienced eye can see some Ferrari 250 GTO influence here, along with some Shelby Daytona Coupe and maybe a touch of classic Corvette style, but even youngsters can easily tell that the SCG006 would be an incredible ride.
Mashing them up might be an act of brazen theft, but Steve Jobs always credited Pablo Picasso with saying “Good artists copy; great artists steal.” So we will credit Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus with greatness, for stealing only the very best in creating the SCG006.
Glickenhaus is the endurance sports car racing team of James Glickenhaus that has teased us previously with visions of contemporary street-legal supercars based on endurance racing designs.
Now, SCG is going back to the future to mine beloved classics for design inspiration. We can’t wait to see the car in the metal. Until then we’ll be grateful they didn’t choose to channel any of Picasso’s abstract impressionism in styling the car.
Though Glickenhaus didn’t reveal what type of drivetrain the SCG006 will be getting, per Road & Track, output is said to measure 650 horsepower.
In other words, it’s more than just a pretty face.
