China-based Icona supercar studio has announced the official premiere of the Vulcano Titanium will be held during the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Founded in Turin, Italy, the company has prepared an updated version of the Vulcano supercar that was first revealed during the 2013 Auto Shanghai. Actually, this one will come with a 6.2-liter V8 C6 Corvette ZR1-sourced engine, replacing the previous two hybrid options. The powerplant is installed in front of the cabin and behind the front axle and is generating 670 PS (493 kW) in its base form, while the manufacturer says this can be boosted to over 1,000 PS (736 kW).
As the name suggests, the body of the machine is built from a mix of titanium and carbon fiber. Thanks to this, the total weight stands at 1,590 kg (3,516 lbs). The prototype is nearly production-ready and features a fully functional interior.
Final acceleration figures are not available at the moment, but the Chinese producer says currently the car can reach 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and 120 mph (193 km/h) in 8.8 seconds. Top speed stands at 220 mph (354 km/h).
Full details will be revealed at the car’s debut during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in mid-August, so stay tuned.
