The driving force behind Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, James Glickenhaus, is a man passionate about high performance motoring as measured by the crucible of auto racing. So passionate that he has used his years of experience with high-end race cars to create one of his very own... and to top that off by also creating a street-legal version of the same race car. The SCG003S is that street-legal car, what amounts to a LeMans-style endurance racer for the street. And in keeping with this first chapter of our Serious Downforce series, the SCG003S features what looks a lot like the basket handle wings found on the other cars in this series.

One clear difference in the SCG wing is that instead of just channeling the downforce to the car via the ends of the spoiler, it also features a center strut, in this case attached to the car's "dorsal spine." But it appears the bulk of the downforce is meant to be transmitted to the beefier side struts.

The SCG's wing, like the entire body, is made of carbon fiber. The idea behind this incredible purpose-driven vehicle is simple: Glickenhaus says he wanted to create a vehicle that the owner could drive to the race track, change wheels to track-oriented rubber, compete at a high level, then change the wheels back to street tires and drive home. That is quite a dream, and now here it is in the flesh. With serious downforce.
