Icona has finally revealed the Vulcano at Auto Shanghai, after a couple of teasers released in the last weeks.

Set to remain most likely as a one-off designed exclusively for a buyer willing to pay about 2M EUR (2.6M USD / 1.7M GBP), the Vulcano is a supercar created by coachbuilder Cecomp (founding partner in Icona) who also worked on the BMW Z4 Zagato and Ferrari 575M SuperAmerica. In addition, Cecomp provided engineering support for the limited edition Alfa Romeo 8C.

The vehicle is 4450mm long, 1940mm wide and tips the scales at 1,595 kg (3,516 lbs). Its styling was created by designer Samuel Chaffart who most likely has a soft spot for the Ferrari California and Lexus LFA, as well as other cars.

Although just one car will probably be made, former Ferrari F1 technical director Claudio Lombardi created two powertrains for the Vulcano. The first one is called H-Turismo V12 and provides a rear-wheel drive hybrid configuration with a V12 engine producing 790 bhp (589 kW) and an electric motor rated at 160 bhp (119 kW). Linked to an automatic gearbox, Vulcano reaches 62 mph (100 km/h) in three seconds and 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.2 seconds, en route to a top speed of 217 mph (349 km/h).

The more potent H-Competizione model has a twin-turbo V6 with 550 bhp (410 kW), a 160 bhp (119 kW) electric motor powering the front axle and another 160 bhp electric motor to drive the rear axle, turning the Vulcano into a four-wheel drive supercar. In this configuration, 0-62 mph takes 2.9 seconds, 0-124 mph is done in 8.9 seconds, while the top speed remains at 217 mph.

Since both of them have an electric motor, they can be driven on electric power alone but only for a very short distance.
