The 650HP 6.2L V8 Beast That Can Do The School Run Then Win The Baja 1000

The road legal Baja Boot is the brainchild of car specialists Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus

The premise was simple enough to fit on an August 2019 company tweet: “Create a new version of the Baja Boot, race the Baja 1000, and drive home.”  The Boots in question, despite the misleading pun, are fast off-road machines and the brainchild of car specialists Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, whose CEO owns the original Boot, once owned and raced by Steve McQueen back in the 60s. And the company were as good as their word, driving down to Mexico, winning the 2019 Baja 1000 in the Class 2 division before turning around and heading home on the open road. No trailers required.

Jump forward to 2020, and you can now have your very own road legal (in the US at least) Glickenhaus Boot. The two door version comes with a 6.2L V8 engine that can put 460HP down through the four-wheel drive to the massive 37 inch tyres. And if that isn’t enough power for you, you can add a supercharger and take it up to 650HP.

Of course, you might be thinking that the machine has somehow been sanitised, that in becoming more ‘road’ than ‘off-road’ it has lost some of the magic that got it built in the first place. You’d be wrong. Frills only really start when you add the optional Gotham Package, which includes an upgraded sound system, carpets and parking cameras. Even the roof rack is optional. Buy one, go shopping, do the school run, win races - this is the only vehicle you’ll ever need to buy again. 

The two-door version starts at £196k and the four-door starts at £271K.
