    I like a lot of what he is doing. This just looks like a bad kit car to me.

    I wish him success, building cars seems to me to be a daunting task. I do think this sort of spec built niche car will be more common in the future as 3D printing and other technologies drive down the cost of bespoke creations.

    Jim is nothing more than a hardcore car guy who loves Ferraris. All his projects have been super modern and no expense spared, so I was surprised to see this. I am sure no expense will be spared in this car either. I do think it would be cool if it was a more modern design that tied in with 003 but it really is a different animal.

    What is interesting is that it looks like this new car will even drive like a vintage car. No paper thin rubber here.

    It looks like a strange mix of a Cobra, 250 California, and 250 GTO/Shelby Daytona.

    Fixed it for ya...

    I'm sorry this one I just don't get at all. If you're going to make something better than the original make it better than the original. This has kit car written all over it.

    At least his other concept, even though derived from other cars , still had a reason for being. It looks like the Kelmark GT version of 250 GTO's. It even has the same grill.

    I see Intermeccanicca and Devin in this, but can't love it. I guess it's easier to criticize though, but the side-pipes look awful IMHO.

    I don't like a forced induction engine, an itb equipped high winding na motor would be a lot better suited imo. That with the rear exit exhaust would be pretty cool. Those side pipes aren't pretty.

    He said the exhaust was inspired by the 1961 Corvette Mako Shark concept car. (by designer Larry Shinoda and Bill Mitchell) He has also stated on Facebook that he will make the exhaust however customer wants.

    more from his FB:
    Ordering information. SCG 006 Work in Progress. In response to several inquiries here is the story on SCG 006. SCG 006 will be a 17 digit VIN# Vehicle built under our NHTSA Approved Low Volume Status. It will be US road legal in 49 states and hopefully may become California legal at some point. It's engine will be LT4 650 HP V8 Supercharged with a 6 sp. manual transaxle. Paddle shift will be an available option. Carbon Fiber Body. We will have dealers and warranties. MSRP. TBD but around $250K. We will take pre production purchase options with a 10% deposit to secure first year build slots. As first year build slots for 004 sold out within a few weeks of first 004 FB posting 006 may as well.

    just to complete the list of SCG cars: (these 2 were built prior to creation of 'SCG' brand and were never dubbed SCG, but it's how Jim arrived at SCG 003)

    SCG001 (2006), aka Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina (Enzo based, inspired by '60's Ferrari P cars)
    SCG002 (2009), aka the P4/5 Competizione (based on Ferrari F430 Scud & GT2) check out his 'Garage' section

    and PLEASE leave out any comments about his P3/4 '0846'. That horse has been beaten to mush and has it's own thread.

    I like 003 and 004 a lot. Jury still out on the 006. But 003 Stradale is up there with the most beautiful cars i have (yet) to see.

    Me too. I like the retro-modern concept and wish Ferrari would do more of it. The 456 and 550 were both retro-modern designs based on the 365GTB and 365GTC/4 respectively.
