Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus Reveals New Hypercar

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) has finally released the first official image of the car that will compete in the new Hypercar World Endurance Championship (WEC) class. Cars that do not yet have an official name have a look that looks quite threatening.

The most interesting part is the rear wing. SCG designers seem to be inspired by the concept of the Alfa Romeo BAT from the 1950s, with wide wings that stretch from the rear wheel arches connected horizontally, making it a strong rear wing.

The design not only makes it look unique, but it is also very efficient in providing downforce effects without producing too many obstacles. While at the front, the SCG race car shares more in common with other models.

SCG has not revealed the official specifications of its new race car, but states that the car will be powered by a 3,000 cc twin turbo V6 engine. James Glickenhaus previously said that this engine would produce 650 horsepower and be channeled towards the two rear wheels which are equipped with KERS 150 horsepower units to drive the front axle.

A pair of factory-supported entries will compete in the Hypercar class, while consumers will also be able to buy and race cars. In addition, SCG will build several version units that can be driven on public roads to meet homologation requirements.

Other companies that have confirmed their participation in the new series which will begin in the FIA ​​WEC 2020/2021 season are Toyota, Aston Martin and ByKolles Racing.
