Before he was one of America’s premier automotive enthusiasts and gentleman racers, James Glickenhaus was stock magnate, and before that, a writer and producer of The Exterminator. (His CV is much, much cooler than yours.) As a follow-up to his spectacular collaboration with Pininfarina—the Ferrari Enzo-based P4/5—Glickenhaus has produced the SCG 003 Stradale, a race-ready, road-worthy supercar. (SCG stands for Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, the car is the third (003) he’s produced, and “Stradale” is Italian for “street.”)
The car combines an Enzo-like nose—the man has his preferences—with sloping, spiny rear of an endurance racer, and while the main engine will be a version of Honda’s twin-turbo V6 (to be used in their upcoming NSX), it’s mounted on a detachable sub-frame, meaning another engine (rumored to be a TT W12) could be easily swapped in. That adaptability underscores what Glickenhaus has said about the 003: it’s a racecar for the street, and racecars must have easily swappable components. In either version, we’re excited for the car’s debut at Geneva.
