This Car Maker Hand Shapes Titanium to Produce an One-Off Blistering Hypercar

,

At the 2015 Pebble Beach Concous D’Elegance, Icona, a boutique automotive company, plans to exhibit a car with an extremely unique carbon fiber and titanium body. This car is specifically designed to reduce air turbulence caused by the wheels and move out the hot air from the engine. The Vulcano, alongside a handcrafted titanium body that took 1,000 hours to sculpt, has a similar stylistic lines as the popular Blackbird SR-71 and was originally presented at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show.

Italian coach builder Cecomp will be using a mid-front engine calibrated for homologated race and road use with a balance of convenience and efficiency as they build the Vulcano Titanium.

Icona’s new release will bring a whole new element to the hypercar industry. The paddle shifting gearbox is coupled with a supercharged V8 that outputs 670 hp and which allows the vehicle to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds.
