Anibal Icon: 920Hp Canadian Supercar Based On Porsche 911

- in Cars

Every now and then a new automaker surfaces and announces their intentions to shake up the supercar market with their new machine.

The Anibal Automotive company from Montreal, Canada is already well known for restyling and modifying Porsche cars. Now this company has found a way to apply this knowledge to the construction of its own supercar called Icon.

Anibal have decided to not start from scratch with their product. This “rocket” with a car body made of carbon fiber is based around the Porsche 911 Turbo S and therefore uses the same chassis and 3.8-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine, but the output grows to a massive 920 horsepower.

Icon has a really wild design that cuts through the air. Large openings located on both sides of the nose have active elements that adjust for better aerodynamics. The rear wing is also adjustable to reduce air resistance. In order to gain an even stronger impression when it arises, the car will have gullwing doors.

The mid-mounted biturbo flat-six engine routes power to both axles. The setup allegedly gets the hypercar to 60 miles per hour in 2.4 seconds – that’s faster than the McLaren P1 or LaFerrari. The steering should be sharp and easy, due to active suspension and steering on all wheels. Carbon-ceramic brake discs haul down the 3,400-pound vehicle from high speeds.

The company intends to build just 50 examples of the Icon, plus 5 more of the more extreme looking Drastic edition. No word on pricing for either version has been announced.
