The Shanghai Auto Show came and went with one star-studded concept slipping under the radar from a little unknown company called Icona Shanghai. Icona is a design studio based out of China and focusing on projects in China and Asia. Their latest project comes to us in the form of the Icona Fuselage, a concept that incorporates a design that is on a completely different level than many concepts we’ve seen in awhile.

The Fuselage owns the futuristic look with a unique body structure that starts with that sleek and defined front end. The front of the car paves the way for the rest of the body’s look which takes the shape of rippling waves going down the side and ending at a slightly upturned back end. The look is completed with polycarbonate alloy wheels and those sick gullwing doors.

The interior of the Fuselage seat four and gets a clean look with controls that remind us of the buttons found on a massage chair. No specific details were given on the goodies provided, but they say a picture is worth a thousand words and clearly, this interior is speaking volumes.

Considering this is a car for the future, no engine could possibly fill the space that only a motor can provide. The electric motors are placed next to the wheels and are powered by a 79 lb battery pack placed in the center. The Fuselage is said to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and will hit a top speed of 124 mph.

I love the cozy and comfortable interior of this speedster. Anyway, it really looks so outdated on its platform, but I still find it very appealing about that. I’m also already impressed with its engine.

I wonder if what will be the interior of this one will looks like even the figure performance of it. As for the looks, I can say that I’m not really impressed with it, but I still noticed that it had an appeal.

This what we called about star-studded concept, everyone would be amazed in its overall package. Very ideal.

I think we will don’t have a problem if this car will be powered by an electric engine. If you are scared that bill might rise-up, don’t be. Be scared to the fuel crisis that the whole world is facing now.

I don’t like the front part of this baby although I must say this one has a very unique design, but its electric powered? Whew the electricity bill would again jump up.

Oh please, I’m done with this electric car. Sorry, but though this car looks sporty. It wouldn’t change my conception about this kind of version. I do believe that its still need a lot of study to be called reliable.

Pretty reasonable idea for the propulsion on this one. Actually, that set up is already being used in some electric cars being run today, so that brings this baby closer to reality than you might think.

This is definitely of the nicest looking designs that I have seen this past few months. Just look at the curves that they have done on this one.
