THERE’S NO BETTER time of year for tiny, high-end automakers to meet potential US customers than the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elégance, the automotive equivalent of the Westminster dog show.
One of the more eye-grabbing chunks of metal in Monterey, California this weekend is the Vulcano Titanium. Italian boutique firm Icona showed off a version of the car at the Shanghai auto show in 2013 with a hybrid powertrain.
This newer version is driven by a Corvette ZR1-sourced supercharged V8 engine. And, as the name implies, it’s made from titanium, for a winning combination of lightness and strength.
Whether this car ever makes it to production is another question.
