Despite the US playing host to an increasing number of elite auto manufacturers in recent years, it’s nonetheless been more than half-a-century since an American race car has won the prestigious endurance event that is the 24 Hours of Le Mans. New York’s Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus — better known simply as “SCG” — is aiming to change that long-running travesty with a new ultra-high-performance model appropriately dubbed the “007 Le Mans LMP1.”

‘Setting its sights on the 2020/2021 World Endurance Championship — the high-profile Circuit de la Sarthe in particular — SCG aims to best the competition with the new hypercar, and is confident the LMP1 will be a viable contender. At the heart of the low-profile racer is a 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 that generates a healthy 840hp — a figure made all the more impressive by the 007’s sub-2,500lb weight (which is approximately a quarter-ton less than what the latest Honda Civic weighs!). And, while the Sleepy Hollow-based operation is currently focused on building a 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning machine, SCG says it plans on releasing a small batch of road-legal versions of the hypercar.
