Salon Privé has confirmed the Icona Vulcano will make its UK debut this September.


Icona was established in 2010 and launched with an electric concept car the Fuselage, which was a finalist at the 27th Festival Automobile International in Paris in the World’s Most Beautiful Concept Car competition.


Icona has since developed the Vulcano, a glamorous two-door, two-seater super sport, which made its world premiere in Shanghai earlier this year.  Salon Privé will provide the first opportunity to see this V12 Hybrid one-off, ultra high performance car in the UK. 


Reaching up to 950 hp, the Vulcano has a top speed as high as 350 km/h and a staggering acceleration of under nine seconds for 0-120 mph.  The Vulcano was engineered by world famous former Scuderia Ferrari technical director Claudio Lombardi.


Sales Director David Bagley said: “Icona is a very exciting new brand and we are delighted that it has chosen Salon Privé for the UK debut of the Vulcano. It’s a beautiful car and it is going to look fantastic within the Concepts & Prototypes Display.”
