Glickenhaus picks factory site for upcoming SCG 004S supercar
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is in the process of setting up a new factory for its latest project -- the 004S three-seater supercar -- which was revealed in a rendering a year ago. The boutique supercar maker has selected a site at a small airport in Danbury, Connecticut, which will produce the $400,000 supercar beginning a year from now.
The small-volume automaker recently made a few tweaks to the shape of the carbon fiber-bodied 004S that will be powered by a 650-hp 6.2-liter Chevrolet LT4 engine in base form, borrowed from the Corvette Z06, or an optional 800-hp Chevrolet LT5 engine courtesy of the Corvette ZR1 parts bin. Both will be offered with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions, the latter with paddle shifters, and an even more track-focused version dubbed 004C GT3 will also be on the menu even though details on it have not been revealed yet.
SCG plans to hit a production pace of 250 cars a year by 2020 and has already been accepting $40,000 deposits for the upcoming 004S model.
The upcoming Connecticut factory is also expected to produce the retro-styled 006 sports car project that was revealed by SCG this summer. Mixing vintage Ferrari and Corvette design cues in an 80/20 ratio, the retro-themed model is expected to be offered in roadster and coupe form, but no firm production timeframes have been announced just yet.
