Another one that’ll be there next week at Auto Shanghai: the Icona Vulcano, an exotic one-off supercar which gets teased in this set of photos.

The Vulcano has a front-mounted hybrid V12 powertrain that develops 900 hp, affording a 0-200 km/h sprint time of under 10 seconds and a top speed of well over 300 km/h. Ex-Ferrari engine technical director Claudio Lombardi worked on the powertrain.


In charge of the looks department is French designer Samuel Chuffart, who previously worked for Nissan and Jaguar Land Rover before becoming head of the Icona studio.

Founded in 2010, Icona is a Shanghai-based Italian boutique carmaker and design house. It quietly debuted the Fuselage concept, an all-electric, gullwing-doored four-seater (second picture above), at Auto Shanghai 2011. The Vulcano is said to be an evolution of the Fuselage.
