Glickenhaus SCG 004S

The latest from Glickenhaus is the SCG 004S. The car packs a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 making 650 hp and 531 lb-ft, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox or a paddle-shifted automatic. At 2,600 pounds, thanks to copious carbon fiber one gets a power-to-weight ratio of 4 pounds per horsie.

The SCG 004 also comes in at a highly reasonable $400K. The company says it will be ready in early 2019.
There's room for 3 bums in the street version. Glickenhaus has plans to build GT3 and GTE/GTLM racing versions, with a view to one day competing at Le Mans.
The long-term plan is for 250 cars a year by 2021.
