The key to the design process was balancing two elements which stand in stark contrast to each other: hard-edged blades and full, voluptuous surfacing. Vulcano Titanium is a front mid-engine layout, with a strongly sculpted body side which would evacuate the hot air from the engine to reduce the air turbulence generated by the wheels.
“As different ideas came together, the most challenging design issue which we faced was how to create a balance between power and beauty. When you’re trying to create a feeling of aesthetic harmony, you risk creating too many sweet lines, which decreases the feeling of power. On the other hand, if you make too much of the powerful features which are necessary to a super sports car such as its cooling cutouts and blades which manage the air flow, they become graphically too dominant, and this makes the car less beautiful. The way we found the right balance was using symmetrical signatures for the greatest simplicity.”
