Italian design outfit Icona has unveiled its new Vulcano concept in Shanghai, following the release of a single teaser image over the weekend.
Chief designer Frenchman Samuel Chuffart, who has previously worked with the likes of Bertone, Jaguar and Nissan, was also responsible for the Icona Fuselage concept car in 2011.
A true supercar, the Vulcano is driven by a front-mounted V12 engine mated to an electric system, producing a combined 670kW, according to Icona.
With power sent to the rear wheels, Icona claims a 0-200km/h time below 10 seconds, and a neck-snapping 0-100km/h time of less than 2.0 seconds.
The V12 is the work of Italian engineer Claudio Lombardi who has overseen successful power plants for Lancia and Ferrari motorsport programs in the past.
A racing V6 version of the car has also been developed, producing 650kW with the help of two electric motors. The V6 engine drives the rear wheels while the electric units turn the front wheels.
A production run of the Vulcano supercar has yet to be confirmed.
