Faralli & Mazzanti changes plans and creates the Vulca S

Back in March 2008, the carrozzieri Faralli & Mazzanti has announced a new vehicle, the Vulca V12, a fantastic car that would be powered by a 7.5-litre V12 able to produce 600 bhp. Well, it seems plans have changed and a V12 will no longer fit the car. Now Vulca will have the same engine that can be found under the hood of BMW M5, but a little bigger. Instead of a 5-litre V10 pumping out 507 bhp, the Italian supercar will have a 5.8-litre V10 producing 630 bhp and 630 Nm. Even the name of the car has changed. Ladies and gentlemen, please meet the Vulca S.

With such an engine, Vulca S will be able to reach a top speed of 335 km/h and to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 s. The car is 4.83 m long, 2 m wide, 1.35 m tall and has a wheelbase of 2.78 m. Both its structure and body are made of aluminium, what will ensure a low weight, still not disclosed. Front wheels use 255/30 ZR21 tyres, while rear ones use 295/25 ZR21. As an option, buyers can choose to have smaller wheels and 245/35 ZR20 tyres in front and 275/30 ZR20 tyres in the back.

There are still no picture of the car's front end because the prototype may need to be changed during development. The final version of Vulca S will be presented in March 2009, possibly at Geneva Motor Show.

When we say buyers, it its important to point out there won't be many of them. In fact, Faralli & Mazzanti do not intend to produce more than ten Vulca S at all. As every vehicle that is produced in such low figures, cars will be more expensive after they are used than when they were brand new. An immediate classic.
