2013 Icona Vulcano
The Icona Vulcano embodies the scoop in Italian innovation and technology. Stretch capable 950 h.p. done an clever combining of burning locomotive and electrical motors, all incased in a beautiful designing featuring juicy and proportionate shapes, this is the car which brings unitedly the Looker and the Fauna. The Icona Vulcano was intentional by Icona Manager of Excogitation, Samuel Chuffart.
The Icona Vulcano is a battlefront locomotive V12 two-door runabout car; the top hurrying bequeath be roughly 350 km/h, and 0-200 km/h volition be easily nether ten seconds. The powertrain of the Icona Vulcano is the employment of long-familiar Claudio Lombardi, old powertrain technological conductor of Ferrari and brainiac of legion reality adept cars. Claudio Lombardi has engineered two usable configurations for the Icona Vulcano. The kickoff is an telling ass bicycle crusade V12 associated to an advance engineering gearbox that includes a crossbreed arrangement: its galvanic motive synchronises the one clasp for immobile appurtenance modify and balances the torsion for smoothen and optimum quickening piece its extra exponent increases the aggregate might of the car to 950 HP.
Based on foster ontogenesis of this forward-looking engineering, the Icona Vulcano leave besides be usable in a quartet pedal crusade option: this clock a couple turbo V6 locomotive joined with two galvanising motors for forepart grip leave have a aggregate superpower of 870 HP, and in an boilersuit fix made to be a immortalize drubbing Nürburgring genius. This masterly compounding was successfully time-tested but a few months ago at San Marino with the Lancia 037 (Ex Earth Hotshot Razz) transformed by Beppe Volta into a 4WD crossbreed. Made by ACTUA jointly Italtecnica, the Lancia 037 4WD-H measure its premature book in every way.
2013 Icona Vulcano
The wheels of the Icona Vulcano are bad al, 20 x 10″ in the forepart and 21 x 12.5″ in the behind. These wheels started biography as T6-6061 aerospace score bad al. To cover this superpower, Icona has selected Pirelli P Aught radical mellow execution tyres. With a 355mm segment in the ass and 285mm division in the forepart, these tyres let been highly-developed victimisation a new high-grip colonial with nano-composites and an groundbreaking racing step. The Icona Vulcano braking organization has been supplied by Brembo. The GT-R brakes are the finest high-performance aftermarket braking scheme always engineered for product. Ignitor and stiffer with first-class hotness rejection, the 6 plunger calipers are machined altogether from position. Jackanapes c ceramic discs of 380mm all stave concentrate inactiveness piece dissipating oestrus exceptionally quick.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
The mind for the Vulcano get-go emerged in 2012, when Icona was invited to display its acclaimed galvanizing construct car the Fuselage at the Xxvii Fete Car External in Paris as a finalist in the Humanity’s Nearly Beautiful Conception Car rivalry. A new finish was set: if Icona could win hearts with the Fuselage, a iv seater saloon, how many more masses could they convince with a glamourous two seater sup athletics? The thought for the Icona Vulcano was innate.
“The identical beginning approximation for the Vulcano was to use a strawman locomotive layout, and to use a powerfully graven consistency face which would void the rhetoric from the locomotive and dilute the air upheaval generated by the wheels. As dissimilar ideas came unitedly, the nigh thought-provoking conception matter which we faced was how to produce a counterweight betwixt powerfulness and knockout. When you’re stressful to produce a flavor of esthetical concordance, you hazard creating too many odorous lines, which decreases the impression of mightiness. On the early handwriting, if you shuffle overmuch of the hefty features which are requisite to a a-one sports car such as its chilling cutouts and blades which oversee the airflow, they go diagrammatically too rife, and this makes the car less beautiful. The way we base the redress symmetricalness was normally by looking the sterling restraint” aforesaid Samuel Chuffart, Conception Conductor of Icona.
WHO IS INVOLVED
Founded in betimes 2010, Icona is unequalled among European invention studios. For gentle and commodious communicating with its Chinese clients, the full Icona squad – and not hardly its commercial-grade situation – is based permanently in the nerve of Impress’s Lujiazui zone. With a ontogeny innovation squad from 8 unlike nationalities, Icona provides pattern services to the about well-thought-of automakers in Chinaware. Done its unified partnership with sphere leadership Tecnocad Progetti and Cecomp placed in Torino (Italy), Icona brings unitedly the better of European innovation, technology, mold and prototyping see.
Gifted offspring French architect Samuel Chuffart brings prodigious outside live to his function as innovation conductor of Icona. During his 8 yr incumbency at Nissan Pattern in Europe and the US, Mr. Chuffart played an instrument in the introduction and realisation of the Nissan DNA which is known nowadays. Mr. Chuffart so stirred to Jaguar-Land Scouter, earlier beingness selected for the billet of Boss Intriguer at a leadership invention home in Italy in 2008, successfully underdeveloped legion output cars shortly to be seen on the route.
Claudio Lombardi is one of the about successful Italian drive engineers: racing conductor of Lancia who won septet Earth Bait Championships with 037 Rag and Delta S4 from 1982 to 1991, powertrain technological conductor of Ferrari for Normal One and GT cars from 1991 to 2000, and undertaking leader of Aprilia to win the Superbike Mankind Backup in 2010 with Max Biaggi, victimisation one of the near brawny and lighter engines e’er highly-developed in its family.
The Icona Vulcano is coachbuilt by Cecomp, innovation pardner of Icona Impress and one of the ball-shaped leadership in modelling and prototyping in the self-propelling manufacture. For terminated xxx geezerhood, Cecomp has been gift bod to ideas highly-developed by designers, stylus centres and explore and developing institutes for fomite manufacturers universal. Nowadays, Cecomp is knotty altogether stages of the fomite biography bike: dash exploitation, construction prototypes, pre-industrialization and industrialisation, from the up-to-the-minute BMW Z4 Coupe Zagato and the Ferrari 575M SuperAmerica to the yield of the Bollore Electric.
