Ah the Chinese. They aren’t what you’d call…original when it comes to car design

Ah the Chinese. They aren’t what you’d call…original when it comes to car design.

Instead, they seem nick design cues from other brands and wack on a new badge.

Take the nation’s newest supercar for example.

Called the Icona Vulcano, it seems to be a Frankenstein of the supercar world’s elite.

See it from the front and you think Ferrari F12. The side, Corvette Stingray. The rear, Lexus LFA.

Still, you can’t copy a car’s performance and it’s here the Vulcano comes into its own.

With a claimed top speed of 350km/h from its 670kW 6.0-litre V12, Icona claims the Vulcano can charge from 0-200km/h in less than 10 seconds.

Nice.
