The Aston Martin Vulcan is a track-only supercar and it for sure the British luxury brand’s most intense and exhilarating car so far. The 800-plus horse-power, all-carbon fiber Aston Martin Vulcan is set for extreme performance. The design of the Vulcan is breath taking. See the images of the Vulcan in the gallery.
You will never see the Aston Martin Vulcan on the streets. It is a race-track only car and very limited. The new Aston Martin supercar will be limited to just 24 cars worldwide. Prior to taking delivery of a Vulcan, owners will be offered to take part in an extensive and detailed program of intensive track driver training. Experienced racers including Aston Martin Racing’s Le Mans-winning Darren Turner will support owners offering them the chance to refine their track driving technique and increase their ability through a carefully-constructed series of practical and theoretical driver training events.
CEO, Dr Andy Palmer, said: “Aston Martin Vulcan is, by its very nature, a rare and thrilling supercar. Designed and engineered to deliver a genuinely bespoke driving experience that draws on our rich heritage, this car tailors its power and handling to both the capabilities of the driver and the characteristics of the track. “A sports car for true sports car lovers, I believe the Aston Martin Vulcan – and the unique ownership program that sits behind it – sets a whole new standard in the ultra-high luxury supercar class.”
The Aston Martin design team led by Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, and with a design language hinting at the next generation of Aston Martin sports cars, this supercar is powered by the most potent iteration yet of the company’s 7.0-liter V12 engine.
With its 800-plus hp engine developed in conjunction with Aston Martin Racing, this front mid-engined, rear-wheel drive sports car draws extensively on Aston Martin’s GT motorsport experience. The Vulcan has its power-to-weight ratio exceed those of the GTE cars which compete in the FIA’s annual World Endurance Championship.
Aston Martin’s Director of Special Projects and Motorsport, David King, said: “Taking the extensive learning from our various successful racing programs and applying it to this exceptional track car for customers has been an exciting and sometimes challenging task for the team here at Gaydon.
“Our deep and broad motorsport experience, allied to our renowned road car expertise, has allowed us to make the Aston Martin Vulcan the absolutely compelling proposition it is today.”
The Aston Martin Vulcan will make its world debut on the brand’s new stand at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show (Hall 5 Stand 5253) at 10.15am on Tuesday March 3.
