Canadian tuner plans 920-horsepower supercar

The Anibal Icon uses a tuned Porsche 911 Turbo S as its base.

A Canadian supercar powered by a Porsche 911 Turbo may be on its way. Called the Anibal Icon, it claims a 0-60 time of 2.4 seconds and an all-wheel-drive powertrain.

Based in Montreal, Anibal Automotive is apparently a tuner specializing in Porsches. A quick glance of its website reveals $12,000 body kits with names like "The Attack," "The Rush" and some modified T-Rex three-wheelers as well.

Anibal now says it will develop a supercar based on the 991.2, modifying its 3.8-liter twin-turbo engine to produce 920 horsepower. It also asserts that the car will weigh 3,400 pounds, thanks to a custom carbon body. Active dampening, active aero, four-wheel steering, and carbon-ceramic brakes will be part of the package as well.

From the concept images Anibal has released, the appears to use the rear of the 911, including its taillights, while extensively modifying the body work around it. It also boasts gullwing doors, and pontoon fenders.

Anibal plans to limit the standard Icon to 50 units, plus five additional units called the Drastic Edition. An exact release date has not been announced.
