Icona, a design firm with Italian roots but headquartered in Shanghai, has introduced a world’s first supercar concept with a unique titanium and carbon fiber body, called Vulcano Titanium.
"Inspiration for the Vulcano came from the world’s fastest plane, the Blackbird SR-71, whose sharp and dramatic silhouette complimenting its sensual surface transitions was key to the styling of the Vulcano." said Samuel Chuffart, Icona design director.

The naked titanium body is a sculpture, revealing its 10,000 hours of hand-crafted work in the most pure form. The vehicle also had a mid-front engine calibrated for homologated road and race use capable of achieving speeds of 220 miles/hr.
