The Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid is an Italian AWD hybrid grand tourer concept by Icona. It appears in Asphalt 8: Airborne as an Enduro Double Down-unlockable vehicle.

Description

Icona, a Shanghai-based design and engineering consultancy, added some supercar intrigue to the Shanghai motor show with the unveiling of its 950-hp gasoline-electric hybrid powered Vulcano concept -- a car quickly billed as China's new Ferrari. The front-engined GT was created expressly to drum up business for Icona. Former Jaguar and Nissan designer Samuel Chuffart is responsible for the car's styling. He says the goal was to create a combination where “beauty and beast come together.”

The car's length and width are 175.2 inches and 76.4 inches respectively, with the wheelbase extending to 106.2 inches. It is clothed in a carbon-fiber body and uses an aluminum chassis.

Icona is proposing two versions, both powered by a gasoline-electric hybrid driveline using a V12 engine (unspecified capacity) with an electric motor and seven-speed gearbox -- a system that sounds similar to Ferrari's HY-KERS arrangement. This is no real coincidence; the man behind the car's technical aspects is Claudio Lombardi, who previously worked in Ferrari's powertrain division.

An 807 hp rear-wheel drive version is claimed to weigh 3,509 pounds, with a 950 hp four-wheel drive flagship said to tip the scales at 3597 lb (1632 kg). Like much about the Vulcano, the claimed accelerative properties are theoretical at best. Icona claims 0-62 mph in 3.0 seconds, 0-124 mph in 9.2 seconds, a 9.7-second standing quarter-mile time and 217 mph top speed for the rear-wheel drive variant and 2.9 seconds, 8.7 seconds, 9.2 seconds and the same 217 mph top speed for the four-wheel drive example.

A8 Vulcano stats (MP KMH)

Summary

The Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid was added in the Multiplayer League Update as a high-end Class A Elite car with the following statistics:

  • Starting rank: 1441
  • MAX rank: 1648 (+207)
  • MAX+PRO rank: 1770 (+122)
  • 0808 Elite Tuning rank: 1788 (+18)
  • Tuning Kit bonus: +41
  • Stock-to-MAX+PRO rank difference: 329
  • Upgrade rank percentages: 10/40/10/40
  • Speed Modifier: 94.74%
  • Nitro Efficiency: 6/12/16

The Vulcano is placed between the Bentley EXP10 Speed 6 and Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS in the garage.

Performance

The Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid's main weakness is its poor drifting abilities. Despite this, it is the third-best car in Class A in terms of overall performance, only behind the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage and the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport. It has a maximum total speed of 313.5 mph/504.8 km/h. The Vulcano mainly rivals the TRION NEMESIS, McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, Rezvani Beast Alpha, HTT Pléthore LC 750, Ferrari Enzo Ferrari, and Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS, but is otherwise mainly inferior to the Ferrari 488 Pista and Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV.

The overall performance of the Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid makes it a viable alternative to users who do not have the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage. As of the Car Blueprints Update, both cars have been superseded by the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport and Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition (with its improved acceleration from this update, but still especially on long tracks).

Official review

This is the official review of the Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by Elite_HectorX and published on October 27, 2016:

Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 7.524s

Perfect nitro duration: 9.768s

Triple nitro duration: 7.425s

French Guiana lap time: 54.945s

Final verdict: "Icona can complete a race in French Guiana in just 54.945 seconds, even faster than the TRION NEMESIS. It has an amazing top speed, a good nitro duration and acceptable handling. As a result, it will be really useful in Time-limited Events if you don't own the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage."
