No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is seeking to construct 24 road-going versions of its SCG 007 prototype race automotive that can compete within the 2021 World Endurance Championship. Positively insane aspirations, however let’s check out how this dream can rework into actuality.
We’d be remiss to not point out that SCG’s 2021 racing marketing campaign seems to be fairly promising. While the car is a completely new beast, veteran drivers like Romain Dumas, Pipo Derani, and Oliver Pla will assist the workforce. Semantics apart, Glickenhaus goals to construct a road-legal model of the race automotive, which clients will be capable to drive to the observe, full a full day, after which drive again residence.
Fortunately, Glickenhaus crammed within the blanks on a current Fb publish about what to anticipate with the 007S. Whereas we had been greatly surprised by the quoted energy output of 1,400 horsepower (1,044 kilowatts) and functioning air-con, the estimated Nurburgring Nordschleife lap time of beneath 6 minutes – on street tires – was merely jaw-dropping. Apart from the large job of getting the packaging proper with the quoted ranges of efficiency, this can be a massive declare.
Whereas the Porsche 919 EVO’s Nurburgring record of 5 minutes 19.546 seconds is actually untouchable, it’s nonetheless a giant ask for the SCG 007S to interrupt the 6-minute barrier. Certain, the latter can have the previous beat with regards to all-out grunt – with 1,400 hp (1,044 kW) in comparison with 1,144 hp (853 kW) – nevertheless it’s robust to say that it’s going to examine within the aerodynamic division.
Regardless, we stay extraordinarily excited to see how Glickenhaus will carry out each on the street and on the race observe. Ought to there be sufficient curiosity, 24 examples of the 007S shall be constructed, every with a price ticket of $2.3 million (€1.96 million at present alternate charges).
