Who among you still doubt that China is able to make a supercar that can be aligned with a world-class supercar that exist today? Maybe you need to look at this: Icona Vulcano.
Yes, Vulcano is the latest supercar concept made in China under collaboration with Italian designer. This concept vehicle had its debut in the Shanghai Motor Show 2013 some time ago. Supercar built jointly by European designers and engineers claimed is able to power up to more than 900 hp! Icona is the Italian automotive design house based in Pudong district, Shanghai China. While Vulcano is the first super car project they recently completed work.

The V6 engine version has weighs only 1,591 kg (3,507 lbs), while the V12 version is 1,631 kg (3,595 lbs), which makes the ability to accelerate from 0-100 kph (62 mph) reached in 3 and 2.9 seconds before reaching a maximum speed of 349 kph (217 mph). And if the lead image on Icona's site is to be believed, the Vulcano has a seven-speed transmission, a rev counter that goes to 10,000 rpm, a horsepower meter and a seriously futuristic digital dashboard.
Unfortunately, Icona Vulcano does not explain when and with what company they will cooperate in the production process. It's clear, Icona not only will create a prototype supercar, they will produce it. If it does not happen obviously price will not be cheap. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ICONA VULCANO | AUTOBLOG]
