AlphaLuxe Comment

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG004 rear

Rumour has it that there was a good response to the SCG 004 Road Car Founders Edition and it will soon sell out.

Still, if the project is successful in attracting larger manufacturers, the production 250 cars per annum will be available.
