The $2.6 million Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003S Debuts at the Geneva International Motor Show on Forgeline GA1R Wheels
A pair of the most exotic supercars that the world has ever seen debuted this week, at the Geneva International Motor Show, on Forgeline wheels. Driven by an unyielding passion for performance automobiles and an obsession with excellence, billionaire enthusiast James Glickenhaus (who is well-known for his Ferrari-based P4/5 Competizione) formed his own engineering and manufacturing team, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, to build two versions of this incredible SCG003 supercar.
Both versions of the SCG003 are built on a carbon fiber chassis and body, are powered by a 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 (based on Honda’s HPD V6 race engine), and ride on motorsport-derived pushrod suspension (front and rear), Brembo brakes, and Dunlop tires wrapped around 20 inch center locking one piece forged monoblock Forgeline wheels.
The competition race version (SCG003C) rolls on unique center locking monoblock wheels, manufactured by Forgeline exclusively for Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus. Though it has already undergone extensive track testing, it will make its competition debut this May, at the 2015 24 Hours of Nurburgring. Pricing for the SCG003C starts around $2.3 million.
The street version (SCG003S) is virtually identical to its racing sibling and was literally designed so that it could be driven to the track, converted to race mode, enjoyed on track, and then converted back to street trim to be driven home again. It is equipped with center locking 20-inch one piece forged monoblock Forgeline GA1R wheels (shown here in the Titanium powder coat finish). Customer deliveries of the SCG003S will begin in late 2015 with pricing starting around $2.6 million.
We get tons of requests about Forgeline apparel items, from tshirts to hats to our legendary jackets and more. And while we’ve occasionally purchased logo apparel for promotional purposes, until now, we’ve never really been serious about putting it into inventory and selling it. But as the volume and intensity of requests have accelerated, we’ve finally decided that we can’t resist any longer, and it is time to give the people what they want!
So we have now begun identifying select high-quality apparel items, embroidering them with the Forgeline logo, and receiving them into our stocking inventory. As of February 2015, we’ve received the first round of items, including this embroidered Fresh Air GT Softshell Jacket (from world-leading high-tech ski apparel manufacturer Spyder) and our new embroidered Carbon Cap (with a visor and adjustment strap made from a Swiss-derived “carbon fiber” fabric). The Spyder jackets are currently available in men’s sizes medium through double extra large for $149 each. And the Carbon Caps are available in a single size for $25 each.
More items will be available very soon, including high-tech moisture-wicking tshirts and “Sport-Wick” anti-static moisture-wicking hooded pullover fleece sweatshirts (the same ones made famous in our 2014 team Christmas photo). You can find all of our apparel items at: http://www.forgeline.com/products/accessories-finishes/forgeline-apparel/
All of us at Forgeline are very proud of our in-house finishing and powder coating facility. Having this capability under our own roof enables us to deliver a level of quality and service that would not otherwise be possible by farming out to an external vendor. It also allows us to experiment with new ideas and create cool new finish options to meet the needs and wants of our customers. The latest example is our newest finish: Tinted Gold Transparent.
Our new “Tinted Gold Transparent” finish is a unique combination of our brushed and machined surface finishes combined with a translucent tinted gold powder coat. This unique finish provides an appearance very similar to anodizing, but with the benefits of a much more durable powder coat!
Tinted Gold Transparent is an optional powder coat upgrade available on all entire one piece monoblock wheels, all three piece wheel centers, and three piece inner & outer rim shells.

As our One Piece Monoblock Series continues to grow in popularity, we’ve remained extremely committed to serving our customers’ needs by investing in new forgings and additional machining capacity, as quickly as possible. So we’re very happy to announce that our latest investments have yielded another set of new monoblock sizes with immediate availability!
ALL of our one piece forged monoblock street wheels are now available in new 18×8.5 and 19×9.5 sizes. These new monoblock options have now been added to the Forgeline website. See more at: http://www.forgeline.com/products/one-piece-monoblock/
We’ve also just released a limited run of 17-inch diameter GS1R racing wheels in 8.5, 9.0, and 10.0 inch widths. These 17×8.5, 17×9.0, and 17×10.0 GS1R options are ideal for smaller racecars (BMWs, Hondas, Miatas) who require the ultimate in performance capability but are limited to 17-inch diameters.
