The Icona Vulcano Titanium Supercar

When it comes to strength, titanium can be as powerful as steel but the former is considerably lighter. Having this quality makes titanium the ideal material for a sports car. However, titanium is a metal that can be very hard to mold. It's quite difficult to hammer and form into shapes and although many companies have thought of using this material as the main component for a car, they have failed to make the plan materialize.

The Icona Vulcano Titanium Supercar came into being when one car manufacturer finally had the courage to build an all-titanium car. This creation puts car enthusiasts in awe not just with the magnificent looks, but also because of some remarkable features.

Lockheed, being an experienced company in vehicle concepts and production, found a way to make titanium molds for the body parts of the Vulcano sports. And it is turning heads. Its design director, Samul Chuffart, came up with a unique concept with beauty and power in mind.

In an interview, Chuffart mentioned that when manufacturers try to make a car that is symmetrical beautiful, they fail to focus on strength. On the other hand, in the manufacturer's effort to build a powerful car, the tendency is to fail on the aesthetic aspect. Chuffart pointed out that, with the Icona Vulcano Titanium Supercar, they were able to balance both strength and beauty. The Vulcano features a 6.2. litre V8 engine that can accelerate up to 220 mph. It also has a steering wheel and seat that receive road information, making it run smoothly like no other car ever created before.
