It is a two-seater and it used a hybrid powertrain. It is a supercar, because of its features. It has a front mounted V12 engine backed by a pair of electric motor. The Icona officials were stated saying, “the drivetrain is the “baby” of Claudio Lombardi, former powertrain technical director of Ferrari.”

The powertrain will give out a combined power of, a little over 900 HP. Icona does not refer to the car as hybrid but in the first 10 seconds, the car will speed up to 200 km/hr. The top speed will be around 250 km/hr.
