2016 Icona Vulcano Titanium news, pictures, specifications, and information
Turin, Italy – 24 February 2016. Icona releases new video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5WNzlBjbT4&feature=youtu.be) of Vulcano Titanium celebrating its presence at Top Marque Monaco 2016 (14-17 April 2016)
Icona shows more about the coachbuilding of its one-off creation: the unique titanium body.

After its world premier at Pebble Beach 2015 and its European reveal in Paris, the Italian Design House has scheduled his presence in the European most important show car happenings: next appointment is in April at Top Marque Monaco.

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 Icona design director Samuel Chuffart. The naked titanium body is a sculpture, revealing its 10,000 hours of hand-crafted work in the most pure form. The Vulcano's strongly sculpted body side and voluptuous shapes evacuate the hot air from the engine and reduce air turbulence generated by the wheels.

The Vulcano Titanium was built by CECOMP, an Italian coachbuilder wîth a long and glorious history in the Racing Field (eg: complete body development and production of Lancia Delta S4, Lancia Delta Integrale, Alfa Romeo 155 DTM). The powertrain is the work of Mr. Claudio Lombardi, ex-Scuderia Ferrari director and mastermind of numerous world champion cars, and Mr. Mario Cavagnero the man behind the Lancia Racing Team and father of the engine of many championship-winning cars (the famous Lancia Delta Integrale and 037, as well as the complete Peugeot 205 T16 and 405 t16 series)

The Vulcano (volcano in Italian) has a mid-front engine calibrated for homologated road and race use wîth an optimum balance of usability and efficiency. Capable to be tuned to well near 1.000 horsepower should the owner demand it, the optimized 670 horsepower and 840 N/m of its supercharged V8 is coupled wîth a paddle-shift close ratio gearbox from Automac Modena, allowing 0 to 60 kw/h in 2.8 seconds and 120 km/h in 8.8 seconds.
