There’s a Prologue for the 2021 FIA WEC championship on the well-known Belgian monitor at Spa Francorchamps in late April (26-27), however at this level, it’s unsure if the SGC 007 LMH can be current on the prologue with all of the restrictions and laws in place worldwide lately, the very first race within the 2021 World Endurance Championship is the Complete 6 Hours of Spa Francorchamps on Could 1.
In a latest Instagram submit by Glickenhaus we realized one thing actually attention-grabbing … apart from the SGC 007 LMH race vehicles they are going to be constructing, the intention is to additionally supply a restricted manufacturing run of 24 street-legal variations, referred to as the SGC 007S, will probably be carefully associated to the race automotive, however include all the necessities for it to be allowed on the open street, initially for the US market, however Glickenhaus is considering making it meet laws for different markets too.
Glickenhaus calls it a “as soon as in a lifetime probability” to acquire a race automotive for the street, and he’s fascinated with a three-seat configuration for the cockpit, with the driving force within the center … now the place did we see that earlier than? However it will get even higher, whereas the race automotive is powered by a 3.5-Liter, twin-turbo V8 engine that needs to be restricted to 680 hp to adjust to FIA WEC laws, there isn’t any restrict set for a avenue model … and for the SGC 007 Stradale they record an enormous 1,400 hp … in a 2,800 lbs automotive!
