How many cars has he sold at this point?
Great bit about JG and the car on Velocity's Restoration Garage tonight.
really impressed with this car, he's moved the game on for sure
It looks absolutely fabulous. I'd rather have one of these than a current production car from the other manufacturers making halo cars at the moment.
All the best,
I agree, it is a great looking car!
Me too, but I would rather an N/A engine in the back; something in a V8 or V12 flavor.
I remember him saying that they've made 8 sales at Geneva.
I was at the Geneva show and saw the SCG003 in person. Really well done and well presented. Exceptional details. At the top level of design execution in my opinion. Pure function and not trendy. Huge Huge accomplishment!!!!
Just saw it on youtube, what is the price range? Ie is it 1M, 2M, more .. ?
Jim seems to be a very nice person and it's really great that despite all his money, he knows everything about the car and does not leave all the knowledge on team. It is something, that has to be appreciated. Absolutely stunning design, eye candy in every way possible. Congratulations for bringing a dream to life. Not everyone is able to finish that job even if they have money to do it.
Just a very very small detail I somehow dislike - all the badges on the car look too much Ferrari-like at first sight. Imagine the car passes on the street by someone who knows nothing about SCG. The guy's gonna tell stories full of a new Ferrari, don't you think?
on a current dated program "Restoration Garage" on the Velocity channel the SGC was featured... on screen banner displayed SGC 009 which would be consistent for 9 cars...
price was also displayed on screen as $2+ mil, then later an on screen banner showed a price under the $2 mil number... confusing, wish I had recorded it, the SGC feature was fragmented / broken up between other features
all good for Jim G... building cars for customers, at price point that is consistent with other similar marque' s price points...
IIRC there were a number of different powerplant options with the car so that could be driving the price variances? I think also options for road/race.
I want a clarification about the car. Is the carbon blue car last year's naked glossy carbon? I mean the one which converted it to road legal specs.
Thank you in advance.
No, right now (to my knowlege) they have produced:
Three Race Cars:
Glossy Carbon (SCG)
Yellow (Private Owner)
White (SCG Rental)
A single S: White Geneva showcar
A single CS: Blue Carbon
There was a pic today of two yellow race cars, so there might be another one.

This is very high praise. Great to hear.
I thought I heard $1.3M for the Stradale on Restoration Garage?
it's such a shame about the qualifications at the weekend, the car deserved to finish first
More details required please. Do you mean disqualifications?
I think he meant results. The car that ran in first for a while had a mechanical failure at the very end and crashed out. It looked like they had a real chance of winning... Very impressive, but racing is heart breaking in that way...

they were 1st (overall) for all of the race, with 24minutes to go there was a problem with the car.
such a shame
That is a shame.
Is anyone privy to the exact reason behind mechanical failure?
