Titanium car has been nothing more than a dream. However, the Italian design company Icona Vulcano made that dream to come true. On the titanium supercar Vulcano, the designers had spent over 10000 work hours.
The story began as a concept back in 2013 in Shanghai, but it was made of Aluminium. Designers were inspired to make a car out of titanium by the Blackbird SR-71 aeroplane. It was a challenging issue to create a balance between beauty and power since balancing powerful features are characteristics for super sports cars but they make the car less pretty.
The Icona Vulcano is so proud of its titanium supercar that is wearing no paint. The materials used for its body aren’t conventional, though, but what lies beneath the skin is less unusual, a Corvette-sourced V8.
It’s the supercharged 6.2-litre, producing 670bhp and 620lb ft. Icona claims the car can be turned past 1000bhp if so desired. They are also calming that it will accelerate from 0-60mph in 2.8-second time and a quarter mile in 8.6-second. Its top speed is 220mph. For this speed, you need good brakes, and they are carbon ceramics, so it should be easy to slow down this machine.
The interior is made of materials that are important for supercar’s cabin, as leather, carbon, and Alcantara. The steering wheel looks like it has been borrowed from Ferrari 458; it also features a high-tech TFT instrument display, seats from Sabelt and many other gadgets stuff.
The price for this car is $2.7 million. Maybe this price can be expected for a hypercar of the most wanted brands such as Bugatti, Pagani, Lamborghini or Koenigsegg, but this time it is a different story and much different concept.
