Founded in early 2010, ICONA brings together the best of European design, engineering, modeling and prototyping experience. This Italian design house born in Torino provides leading design services and prototyping through an integrated partnership with Torino-based coachbuilder Cecomp.
The inspiration for the Vulcano (volcano in Italian) came from the world’s fastest plane, the Blackbird SR-71, who’s sharp and dramatic silhouette complimenting its sensual surface transitions said Icona design director Samuel Chuffart. The naked titanium body is a sculptured work of art revealing its 10,000 hours of hand-crafted work in the most pure form.
The Vulcano is capable to be tuned to well near 1.000 horsepower should the owner demand it, however it comes optimized with 670 horsepower and 840 N/m from its supercharged V8. This is coupled with a paddle-shift close ratio gearbox from Automac Modena, allowing 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and 120 mph in 8.8 seconds.
The Vulcano Titanium was built by CECOMP, an Italian coachbuilder with 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 Claudio Lombardi, ex-Scuderia Ferrari director and mastermind of numerous world champion cars, and 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).
