The next project to be realised by the US-based car maker Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is the SCG004S, which was originally to be a twin-turbo V8-powered supercar.

Now plans have changed, but mostly in the engine bay.

The SCG004S will now be powered by the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 from Nissan’s GT-R, and is set to weigh less than 1200kg.

The company’s founder, film producer James Glickenhaus, told UK publication Autocar that the change had been decided upon because it would mean the engine was lighter, as well as being "practically bulletproof."

Glickenhaus says the entry-level version will be tuned to produce 515kW, more than the V8 which was originally to be found in the SCG004S.

The car will retain its three-seated layout with the driver sitting in the middle McLaren F1-style, as with all of SCG’s cars,and will retain its 6-speed manual gearbox which was to feature in the V8 version.

There will also be an option for a paddle-shift auto.

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus also now has permission from the US Government to manufacture its vehicles in low production, meaning a maximum of 325 units can be built each year.

Racing versions are also planned, with the SCG004S to compete in GT3, GTE and GTLM classes, Glickenhaus also told Autocar.

SCG will continue to race the SCG003C, which last year won the SP-X class and came 19th overall in the 24 Hours of Nürburgring.

Pricing for the SCG004S has previously been reported to be in the USD$400,000 (AUD$518,520) ballpark, which appears to still be the case.
