Here's the Glickenhaus supercar for the next Le Mans racing season

Scuderia Glickenhaus, an American supercar manufacturer in September 2019 had shown a rendered images of its supercar figure which mentioned will compete for the 2020-2021 season in the WEP Hypercar class at the Le Mans circuit, France.

The company is known for commissioning the one-off Ferrari P4/5 supercar which was designed by Pininfarina. Then in the racing world, the American company has also well-known as a participant in various endurance racing events such as 24-Hours of Nurburgring between 2015 to 2017  with the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG 003 (named after the company’s founder) cars.

The supercar mentioned above will be named SCG 007 and as quoted by Autoexpress, that the American manufacturer has confirmed that the car will use a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. It seems, the car's engine is relatively small, but it has in accordance with the regulation of the WEC Hypercar class which limits engine power to only 750 horsepower. We thought that the number can be achieved with certain modifications.

From the rendering images, it's seen that the car appears with a new look aimed specifically at the WEP Hypercar class which will replace the current LMP1 class starting in 2020 as an effort to attract more manufacturers to take part in this race. In the current LMP1 class, only Toyota competes with various 'privateer' teams.

Along with Glickenhaus, the British supercar manufacturer, Aston Martin has also confirmed its participation in the Le Mans race in the WEP Hypercar class by using a car based on Valkyrie. Aside from Toyota, Glickenhaus and Aston Martin, it is also known that Brabham and ByKolles are also interested in joining the inaugural WEC Hypercar class of the 2020-2021 Le Mans racing season. 

Furthermore, not only using it as a racing car of the upcoming WEC Hypercar class at Le Mans, but the Scuderia Glickenhaus will also sell those SCG 007 supercars in limited numbers.

"We used everything we learned from SCG 003 (a racing car which competed at the Nurburgring 24 hours), which is now SCG 004 (GT3/GT2 racing car) and will be part of SCG 007," said Jim Glickenhaus, CEO of Scuderia Gluckenhaus some time ago.

"We will build the racing version of SCG 007 as a prototype, with a design that is quite similar to the street version of the car, and we will make it more than 20 units. "It's not a problem, but we will make it more practical for ordinary roads," he said further. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GLICKENHAUS RACING | AUTOEXPRESS]
