The new SCG Boot is a significantly cry from the air-cooled buggy that encouraged it. It truly is inspired by a 650-horsepower Common Motors LT4 V-eight mated to a race-fortified Turbo 400 transmission. It sports activities a twin-shock set up, with two.five-inch diameter coil-about shocks at all 4 corners aided by Fox bypass shocks, three-inch diameter up entrance and three.five-inches in the rear.
Braking will come from race-all set Wilwood calipers grabbing 14-inch rotors. The Boot’s 22 inches of suspension vacation can be witnessed in motion in the movie accompanying SCG’s tweet over. It was created for 37- or 40-inchꂿGoodrich Baja KR2- or KR3-collection tires.
Want 1 of your personal? That can be organized. SCG has a 49-condition-authorized road-prepped variation with a minor fewer suspension vacation (19 inches) and a ton fewer electrical power (460 ponies), but it however seems to be the element. SCG will develop both variant for you, if you have the scratch. Count on a six-figure price.
SCG is extra than only an off-street racing work. The outfit is at the moment in the approach of developing a car to compete in the World Endurance Championship’s new hypercar class, which calls for homologation of 25 street-heading models by the finish of its 1st calendar year of level of competition, adopted by an supplemental 100 each and every subsequent calendar year to stay element of the collection.
