Icona Vulcano: World's First Car Made of Titanium

Icona Vulcano is the world’s first car to be made out of Titanium and not so surprisingly, it is expensive than a Bugatti Chiron. In an industry where every car is made from Steel, Aluminum and carbon fiber, the Vulcano has a very special place of its own.

It will soon debut at Blenheim Palace in England in the month of September. It took 10,000 hours for Icona to give the required shape to the car, which further is inspired from Blackbird SR-71 plane.

Icona uses a GM sourced 6.2 L, V8 petrol producing 661 BHP and 880 Nm of torque. The same engine powers the Corvette ZR1. The 0-62 mph takes just 2.8 seconds while 0-124 mph comes up in 8.6 seconds. The top speed for Vulcano is estimated to be over 355 kmph.

The interior is made out of leather, alcantara and carbon fiber. The steering wheel resembles that of a Ferrari 458 while the infotainment unit is a large Tesla like touchscreen in the middle. The best part for the car is its availability, limited to just 1 unit forever.

This makes it good for 2.5 million euros, equivalent to around INR 17 Crore. No doubt, it is expensive and the price takes it above the Bugatti Chiron and Lamborghini Centenario. It even claims a Nurburgring time of below 7 minutes and 20 seconds.
