Coachbuilder Faralli & Mazzanti (F&M) is probably most widely recognized for its Antas V8 GT but the Italian design house is working on building a new hero car, this time with a V12 heart. Unlike the previous Antas V8, which was based around a donor Maserati chassis, the new Vulca S V12 was designed from the ground up and recently entered production. Unfortunately, only ten cars are scheduled to see the light of day.

The car, unveiled last December was just launched for sale today. The retro-styled 2+2 GT features an aluminum body and will eventually be powered by either a 6.0L V12 with 445hp (332kW) and 442lb-ft (600Nm) of torque in base models, a 7.1L unit with 520hp (338kW) and 538lb-ft (730Nm) of torque for mid-spec models, or a range topping 7.5L V12 with a supercar-rivaling 630hp (470kW) and 590lb-ft (800Nm) of torque in top spec S cars. That's enough to propel the graceful coupe from 0-62mph (100km/h) in just 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 208mph (335km/h).

Pricing will range from about €280,000 for the 6.0L model and top out at more than €340,000 for the top-end cars. Other options include 19in or 21in forged alloy wheels wrapped with 285mm rubber, and a leather or Alcantara lined interior with carbon-fiber trim.

    ....let it be known that even the italians cant help but shove almost 500 cu. in. into a 2 door coupe.

    this thing is an oxford educated dodge viper...... it is a little long in the back end though. I suppose they probably have a "4 golf bags" rule or something like that.

    Bad stuff?

  2. The pricing is an absolute joke! You can get a better-looking and faster car for half the price.

  3. That's one of the ugliest "retro inspired" cars I've ever seen. Parts of it look okay, but that roofline is terrible! And where are they sourcing the engines from? Surely not in house, though if so it would explain the ridiculous pricing.

  4. Yeah but if there's only 10 of them you are guaranteed exclusivity. That's what a lot of rich people want these days. A car they never see someone else driving.

  5. That is not an ugly looking car, except possibly for the center console inside (what the mother of crap is up with that thing?!).

    But... €280K - €340K for this? It makes it just another one of those overpriced weird cars like the Konniggsegthhnfg and the Pagani Zonda. I can buy a Ferrari or an Aston Martin and still be exclusive enough without throwing away my money on cars nobody knows...

  6. Still ugly. Crap name, too. If I wanted an exclusive coupe with '30s style fenders I'd get a Morgan Aeromax and still have money left over. Oh, and the engine's proven and reliable and you don't have to get parts from a company that might not be around in two years.
