The "Chinese Ferrari."
When the Icona Vulcano debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show in 2013 it was instantly dubbed the "Chinese Ferrari." Although some may not approve of this lofty nickname, it’s easy to see why the supercar was given such high accolades. The Vulcano was developed by Sino-Italian design house Icona based in Shanghai, and looks like a harmonious combination of a Lexus LFA and Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The supercar is powered by a supercharged Corvette ZR1 V8 engine that produces 670 hp and 619 lb-ft of torque.
However, the V8 can be tuned according to customer demand to produce well over 1,000 hp and is capable of propelling the car to 60 mph in a mere 2.8 seconds. The 2015 version of the Icona Vulcano is a world first with its specially constructed body built from a fusion of titanium and carbon fiber. The interior of the vehicle features a seamless artistic blend of futuristic design and sport luxury. The highly anticipated Asian supercar is set to make an appearance at Pebble Beach this coming weekend.
