SCG Upgrades Their Upcoming Le Mans Lightweight Hypercar To 840HP

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.
