The Shangha Auto Program’s media day has officially begun and among the most expected models of the gig has actually damaged cover: the Icona Vucano. However, Icona didn’t reveal far more of the car than its exterior and the reality that it will be available in 2 versions: road and auto racing.
In all, we think Icona has actually struck a homerun with the Vulcano, yet it still has its small problems. One of the glaring concerns is whether it will certainly be a truth or merely yet another dream that diminishes. You see, it takes a ton of money to construct a principle like this and we would certainly not be surpriseded to hear that Icona just does not have the capital to develop manufacturing designs.
Despite whether it ever before hits exchanges or not, the Icona Vulcano concept makes sure to be the talk of Shanghai for the following few weeks.
Finally, we obtain a look at the Icona Vulcano’s exterior and man it was well worth the wait. Up front, you obtain the typical supercar pointed nose, Lamborghini-esque air intakes on the frontal skirt, wild-looking triangular fronts lights and shapely fenders that would certainly make Fergie’s “difficulties” weep in envy.
From the edge, the Icona Vulcano shows off even more sexiness, as reducing into its voluptuous front fenders are warmth extractors with Aston Martin-like chrome strikethroughs, L-shaped mirrors that are razor-thin to provide you merely enough rearward vision to keep you out of trouble and a slick roofline that is very like what you locate on the brand-new SRT Viper and 2014 Corvette Stingray– tolerable company to be linked with.
On the backside, the Icona Vulcano displays a super-unique appearance. Its twin L-shaped taillights guarantee that nobody will mistake this for any other car while driving. Under the back end there is a diffusor to assist leave the air from under the car better and an incorporated trapezoidal tailpipe is sure to produce some sweet noises.
Entirely, the Icona Vulcano is a stunner outside, to say the least. It definitely lived up to all of the aggravating that Icona provided us.
Icona provided us with no info on the Vulcano’s interior, but we will upgrade you once we obtain this facts.
Now, this is where things get a little awkward, as the Icona Vulcano will be available in 2 variants: road and racing.
The street-legal design includes a front-mounted V-12 engine with an electric motor to assist it drain 950 hp. These ponies take a trip to the rear wheels through a single-clutch, automated gearbox. This need to assist the Vulcano switch between gears faster than you could blink your eyes, which gets this supercar to ONE HUNDRED km/h (62 mph) in less compared to 2 seconds, each Icona’s case.
The Competing variant will be totally different. It includes a twin-turbocharged V-6 powerplant that blends with a pair of electric motors to generate 870 horsepower. The V-6 engine is responsible for driving the rear wheels and the electric motors will certainly pair up on the frontal tires. This will certainly net the racing variation a 0-to-100 km/h (62 miles per hour) time of 2.9 seconds.
Both the auto racing and street versions will feature a 217 miles per hour full throttle.
