The Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG 003 (formerly known as P 33) is a limited edition sports car and racing car manufactured by American boutique car maker Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus LLC. First announced as P 33 in 2013, the SCG 003 was launched in 2015 at the Geneva Motor Show. Former Pininfarina designer Paolo Garella was commissioned to design the car.
On July 18, 2017 Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus LLC's application to NHTSA to be a Low Volume Manufacturer was "deemed approved" enabling it to manufacture up to 325 turn key cars per year that do not need to adhere to Federal crash test and airbag standards but still needed to comply with emissions and safety standards in the state that they are registered in.
The company has planned to produce three variants of SCG 003 covering competition racing, track days and road driving, all with the same modular chassis to allow interchangeable parts.
The variant which competes in the 24 Hours Nürburgring is called the 003C, "Competizione" spec. It is an FIA approved racing car with a series-approved V6 engine, a Hewland racing gearbox and race aero parts. The 003S "Stradale", the second model in the 003 series, is a more luxurious version of the 003C, featuring a "liveable" interior and street-friendly aerodynamic features. The 003CS, "Competizione Stradale" would be in between the Stradale and Competizione versions in terms of specification and pricing, the CS is basically a Competizione with only a minimum number of allowances made in order to make it road-legal. The Stradale and Competizione Stradale come standard with street legal tires and a 4.4 L twin-turbocharged BMW V8 engine to meet emissions regulations, for competition racing however non-street-legal items from the Competizione trim could be swapped in the cars due to the modular nature of the cars and interchangeable parts.
The racing version called the SCG003C wherein the C denotes "Competizione" (Competition) is powered by a twin turbocharged V6 engine taken from the Honda Daytona prototype and tuned to deliver a maximum power output of 500 hp (373 kW) restricted under FIA regulations. The engine was tuned by Autotechnica Motori of Italy. The car also has an increased weight of 1,350 kg (2,976 lb) also required by FIA regulations.
The road going model called the SCG003S, wherein the S denotes "Stradale" (Street), will be powered by a 4.4 L (268.5 cu in) BMW twin-turbocharged V8 engine tune to generate a maximum power output of 750 hp (559 kW) and 800 N⋅m (590 lb⋅ft) of torque enabling the 2,866 lb (1,300 kg) car to accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph in 3 seconds. Due to its aerodynamic features, the car achieves a downforce of 1,543 lb (700 kg) at a speed of 155 mph (249 km/h). The 003S is able to achieve lateral acceleration of 2.0 G. The chassis is made from carbon fiber and uses a 7-speed electro-hydraulic sequential dual disc clutch transmission.
The 003CS, a model in between the 003C and 003S where the CS denotes "Competizione Stradale" (Competition Street) has the same poweroutput as the 003S and uses the same engine but has a new carbon fiber rear wing and aerodynamic bits and weighs 998 kg (2,200 lb). The CS is meant to be a track day car which can be made road legal after the installation of road tires and license plates.
On May 27, 2017 during qualifying for the 24 hours endurance race on Germany's Nurburgring, a SCG 003C piloted by American driver Jeff Westphal covered the 12.9-mile stretch of the Nordschleife course in 6:33.20.
