The SCG 007S is the road-legal version of the SCG 007 Le Mans Prototype racecar.

In 2018, the FIA and ACO approved the new Le Mans Hypercar regulation as a replacement for the LMP1 regulation in the World Endurance Championship that would come into effect from the 2020-21 season. On July 27, 2018, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus was the first manufacturer to join the new category, as well as officially presenting the car they would race with, the Glickenhaus SCG 007 LMH.
The SCG 007S was added in the Festive Season Update as a mid-ranked Class A car with the following rank statistics:
- Stock rank: 2,653 ( 1)
- rank: 2,859
- rank: 3,101 ( 28)
- rank: 3,325 ( 32)
- rank: 3,613 ( 44)
- rank: 3,902 ( 59)
- rank: 4,187 ( 86)
At its stock rank, the SCG 007S has a top speed rating of 340, very good acceleration rating (82.90), average handling rating (59.38), and poor nitro efficiency rating (31.67). The 007S's high acceleration can be felt even at stock, as it can get up to speed faster than most other cars with upgraded acceleration. However, the 007S's top speed rating is quite low for the class, and it depletes a full tank of nitro very quickly. The stock handling of the 007S also makes it feel sluggish around tight corners, and it loses a considerable amount of speed when driving on rough terrain.
The SCG 007S's upgrades give the greatest improvements to its nitro efficiency, followed by handling, then top speed, with the least increase to its acceleration. Once upgraded, the 007S is much more agile around corners and loses a lot less speed when driving on rough terrain. It can also more effectively use its nitro to reach its top speed quickly. Despite gaining the least rating increase from upgrades, the 007S's acceleration is still enhanced considerably, allowing it to more easily get up to speed under most conditions. Conversely, the top speed of the 007S remains rather low for a Class A car, even after it is upgraded.
With all upgrades, the 007S's acceleration rating of 89.33 is one of the highest in the entire game, with only the more restrictive Aspark Owl having a higher acceleration rating (89.40).
The SCG 007S's extreme acceleration, especially at or near MAX, gives it some of the strongest starts in the entire game, as well as very high corner exit speeds—to the extent where it sometimes feels as if it has lost no speed from cornering—while also making it less reliant on nitro/shockwave to accelerate to its top speed. The 007S thus performs very well on technical tracks, as well as tracks with many sharp corners, such as The Caribbean, Buenos Aires, and San Francisco. It tends to underperform on tracks with long straights and slight bends, such as Himalayas and Cairo, due to its low top speed.
In Multiplayer World Series, the SCG 007S is unlocked for use once the player reaches Platinum League. The 007S's acceleration makes it very competitive against other higher-ranked Class A cars, such as the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta and Pagani Huayra BC, as it can pull ahead of them at the start of the race and around corners. Even in Legend League, where its low top speed puts it at a disadvantage against nearly all Class S cars, the 007S can still keep up with many of them around corners, while also recovering quickly in the event of a knockdown, due to its sheer acceleration, making it suitable for farming milestone rewards.
