Vulcano Concept Car


Inspired by advanced architecture such as works by Zaha Hadid and Asymtote, the formal language draws also from advanced design airplanes, very suited to the hypercar ergonomics.



The Vulcano uses a consistent theme of dynamic triangles set in horizontal symmetry, reminiscent of the ICONA logo, which balance the dynamism of the volume. To connect the features and divide each part, tight lines complement the voluptuous shape, enhancing the car’s sensual power.


The right balance between aggressive power and harmonious beauty was truly resolved in the clay model process. After many weeks of ¼ scale clay model development, the model was further refined in 3D with the inclusion of prefeasibility checks, including ergonomics, crash tests and aerodynamics.

“The most challenging design issue was how to balance power and beauty. We found the right balance by looking for the greatest simplicity.” – Samuel Chuffart, ICONA Design Director


The power train is the work of world-renowned engineer Claudio Lombardi, the former power train technical director of Ferrari. In collaboration with Mr. Lombardi, ICONA optimized the design solutions, like the flow of hot air, cold arid and down force, to maximize the Vulcano’s extreme performance



Made principally from carbon fiber and black Alcantara and with fully adjustable leather bucket seats, the high tech interior has a race inspired feel. The interior design is driver-oriented, with functions such as GPS, radio and car diagnostics combined in a single large touchscreen, while all elements in the overall design have been integrated in a sophisticated and refined way.
