Italian design house Icona is going to change your world the second it reveals their very unique titanium and carbon fiber-bodied supercar at 2015 Pebble Beach Concours D’elegance. Dubbed as the ‘Vulcano’, this dream machine from Icona features similar sharp and dramatic lines as the famous Blackbird SR-71 military plane, that just scream for attention.

It also comes with a hand crafted titanium body which took over 1,000 hours to develop and was purposely shaped like this to move out the hot air from the engine and to reduce air turbulence generated by the wheels.

The Icona Vulcano will be built by Italian coach builder Cecomp, and will boast a massive V8 mid front engine calibrated for road and race use. Trying to balance off efficiency and convenience, the vehicle will also come with a paddle shifting gearbox connected to the supercharged engine, good for around 670 hp.

The Titanium beast will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62mph) in just 2.8 seconds, promising to be a game changer on the hypercar market, with its unique titanium body. The touch sensitive center console inside the cabin will be another selling point of this beauty and I’m sure there’s more to come from Icona as we get closer to the official launch of this hypercar.
