The teaser was titled just Glickenhaus LMP1, but it is clear that this coupe is going to replace the old LMP1 class.

Last summer the American company Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus announced that it intends to participate in a new championship WEC — class hypercar. Then, the manufacturer has released early sketches of sport prototype, named SCG 007 LMP1. And the head of the company James Glikenhaus posted on Facebook a teaser of the new race car, I must say, noticeably redesigned. Not the fact that the serial number has model will remain.

Company SCG successfully performs in various endurance races. In particular, in the “24 hours nürburgring” model SCG 003C was the first in the category of SP-X in 2017, 2018 and 2019 In the current year, SCG also won in class at VLN races 1 and 6 Hour Qualifying Race.

The car in the teaser has attracted the attention of the public back with curved wings, reminiscent of the concepts of the series , Alfa Romeo BAT, created in the Studio Bertone in the 1950s. with a piece wheels made in the design of “phone disk”, which is characteristic for powerful Alphas, this gave rise to assumptions about cooperation with the company Alfa Romeo in the project. For this reason Glikenhaus just noticed: “Follow”.

Abbreviation BAT meant Berlinetta Aerodinamica Tecnica. In this project, the firm Bertone has tried to create the most streamlined body. All three concepts (from left to right — BAT 5, BAT 7 and BAT 9) painted the famous designer Franco Scaglione. The coefficient of air resistance the BAT 5 was equal to 0.23 and the BAT 7 and 0.19. Right: the full teaser hypercar SCG.

A new class of Hypercars will be entered in the world championship races on endurance WEC starting with the 2020/2021 season. It will replace the old LMP1. Including will be the top in the “24 hours of Le Mans” in 2021-m regulation implies the conclusion of the track racing models redrawn from the road hypercar or the maximum associated with them. (If the race model is designed from scratch, the manufacturer is obliged to produce twenty instances of road performance in two years.) The power plant can be both classic and hybrid on team selection. The regulation only imposes some restrictions on installation options.

In the company of Glikenhaus chose a hybrid. James opened basic data: engine capacity of more than 650 will power the rear wheels and electric motors on the front axle will be able to develop up to 150 forces. Rules for new categories to limit the overall impact of the prototype in 761 HP, despite the fact that its weight must not be lower than 1040 kg.

In addition to Toyota, Aston Martin and SCG are likely to emerge in this class of the championship WEC companies Lamborghini and Koenigsegg. In any case, their leaders have already talked about this interest. And the German team ByKolles Racing announced that it intends to build a hypercar for the new technical regulations, starting from sport prototype ENSO CLM P1/01 LMP1. So the competition in the new class will be high.
