When things start to become boring due to the absence of something out-of-the-ordinary, the public loses interest. Car manufacturers normally push for a regular refresh to keep it interesting, but this is exactly what discourages buyers. If you’re a company like Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG), you might want to consider something totally crazy. We’re talking about an outfit that’s responsible for the Le Mans LMP1 and a slew of exotic automobiles. That’s why it’s totally extreme that it’s shifting efforts to develop the Boot Buggy platform.

This is exactly what we were referring to earlier. Not that we’re complaining, but this is honestly a total surprise that others might not fancy. Nevertheless, it is a refreshing turn of events that illustrates the dynamic nature of the automotive industry. James Glickenhaus, a film director and the brand’s founder, gives us an overview of how its new project came to be. He credits Steve McQueen’s Baja Boot for the inspiration. Glickenhaus makes a bold claim that the race version of this high-performance machine will be exceptional.

It appears that the competition-grade Boot Buggy will be able to tackle the Baja 1000 race with ease. At its heart is an LT4 engine that generates a whopping 650 horsepower. Meanwhile, the regular trim packs a smaller 460-horsepower LT1 power plant instead. Other than the engine, everything else should be the same for both models. Tackling the outdoors require heavy-duty equipment. Thus, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is throwing in a suspension system with Fox shocks. Additionally, the 17-inch Method race wheels have BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM3 all-season tires. This is shaping up to be an exciting year for automobiles.
