Watch Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus Crash Test a One-of-25 004S

Producing a car is a very difficult and expensive process. There is the obvious stuff that hits anyone, like the years of research-and-development costs and testing of new iterations. But, for a limited production supercar manufacturer like Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, some of the largest expenses are the things that come relatively easily to larger and more established companies.

Take, for instance, crash testing. Between computer modeling and the success of their sturdy racing cars in real-world crashes, SCG knew well that their cars would survive crash testing at highway speeds with relative ease. However, there is still the issue of the actual test, an independent process that requires throwing an actual car head-first at a wall. Since just 25 SCG 004S models will ever be made, that means throwing the same car head-first at a wall over and over again.

Some of that crash testing process was captured by the car detailing YouTube channel AMMO NYC. The channel’s video also shares its process of testing detailing techniques on the prototype before it was crashed. As expected, the 004S seemed to handle the test relatively well, with even the remaining pile of parts pulled off the car after the crash looking close to a salvageable condition.
