The new sports coupe Icona Vulcano is the first car that the newly established company from China proposed to millionaires. Icona Vulcano stunned the audience with a good design and a bold personality.
Not only the good looks of the car will draws passionates millionaires attention, but also the technical package. The Icona Vulcano combine a noble V12 engine with and an electric motor (H-Competizione), , resulting in a maximum output of 950 HP. The top speed will be around 350 km/h, and 0-200 km/h will be well under ten seconds.
The 2013 Icona Vulcano will also be available in a four wheel drive wwith a twin turbo V6 engine and two electric motors which will deliver a power of 870 HP.
"The very first idea for the Vulcano was to use a front engine layout, and to use a strongly sculpted body side which would evacuate the hot air from the engine and reduce the air turbulence generated by the wheels. As different ideas came together, the most challenging design issue which we faced was how to create a balance between power and beauty. When you're trying to create a feeling of aesthetic harmony, you risk creating too many sweet lines, which decreases the feeling of power. On the other hand, if you make too much of the powerful features which are necessary to a super sports car such as its cooling cutouts and blades which manage the air flow, they become graphically too dominant, and this makes the car less beautiful. The way we found the right balance was usually by looking for the greatest simplicity" said Samuel Chuffart, Design Director of Icona.
