While the future of the Nürburgring as a GT3 race location is being debated, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has swept in and out with a lap time that puts existing records to shame.
In Facebook and Instagram posts to their official profiles March 31, the American supercar creator confirmed their projected lap time of just six minutes, 42 seconds around the infamous track, with a promise of taking their time even lower when the street version is let loose.
It was really a 6:42 with restricted #Horsepower and huge #weight ballast for BOP. #scg003s should kiss 6:30 on street tires #scg003c #scg003 #scuderiacameronglickenhaus #glickenhaus #gamechanger #nurburgring #lap #record #pagani #zonda #zondar #supercar #hypercar #jimglickenhaus #automotive #history
In the comments section of their Facebook page, they explained the specific circumstances behind this projected lap time, which comes after the SCG003 was reportedly black flagged for being too loud.
“In the race Chassis 001 ran an 8:12 GP+NS lap which our telemetry shows is about a 6:42 NS lap,” explained Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus in a comment. They went on to explain that the car was sporting race tires and a restricted power output of 510 hp, and that they expect the road-legal version to perform even better.

“In road trim it will have much more HP and lower weight and even on street legal tires will be very quick on the NS,” they explained. In the caption of their Instagram post, they speculated that the “#scg003s should kiss 6:30 on street tires.”
The official record for the Nürburgring, according to NürburgringLapTimes.com, was set in 2009 at 6:48.00 by the Radical SR8LM. We have no doubts that the projected twin-turbocharged V12 of the SCG003S will certainly give that record a run for its money.
