Italian design house Icona will be bringing a new version of its Vulcano supercar to this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
This isn’t the first time the Vulcano has been showcased at Pebble Beach, though the car coming this year looks much closer to production. That’s because the Vulcano Platinum, as the new version is called, actually has an engine, unlike the first version of the car, which was said to use a hybrid V12. Now, Icona has installed a supercharged 6.2-liter LS9 V8, borrowed from the C6 Corvette ZR1.
As the name implies, the car features titanium throughout its construction along with lightweight carbon fiber. Curb weight is pegged at around 3,516 pounds. The engine is mounted in the front-mid position to help with handling, while it sends 670 hp and 620 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels, driving the car to 60 mph from a standstill in just 2.8 seconds.
Founded in Turin, Icona is based in Shanghai and specializes in bringing Italian design and engineering to Chinese firms.
