Do-it-yourself  supercar SCG003 has 800 hp and kit car status in the United States image

The SCG 003 first appeared at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and you might not remember it among all the other exotic appearances – it’s a project cooked up by famous Ferrari collector James Glickenhaus.

The project is completely new and unique from the scratch and can be used on and off the track – and it appears US buyers can now shell out almost $1.3 million if they want to get involved in a garage do-it-yourself project. This is because this supercar is different from all others in the way it’s going to be sold as a kit car. There will be no need for costly airbag and crash testing, as the owner will have the car in pieces and then proceed to bolt all the components together. The owners that don’t like to get dirty have the option of having Glickenhaus deliver a mechanic to assist with the build.

The emission regulations still apply so the SCG 003 gets a fully compliant engine. It’s a 4.4-liter biturbo V8 packing 00 horsepower (596 kilowatt) and 590 pound-feet (800 newton-meter) torque. Power will be delivered to the rear axle using a seven-speed sequential racing transmission, the one deployed by Koenigsegg models. Initial estimates for the total costs of the vehicle are rather prohibitive though, with a $1.3 million price tag when it’s introduced.
