Born out of extensive motorsport experience and using the brand’s acknowledged flair for design and engineering ingenuity, the super-800 bhp, all-carbon fibre Aston Martin Vulcan promises truly extreme performance. Uniquely for Aston Martin, the new supercar (limited to just 24 examples worldwide) will allow owners the opportunity to precisely tailor their track day experiences through a graduating scale of detailed power and dynamic performance adjustments.
Aston Martin CEO Dr. Andy Palmer said, “The 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.”
Styled entirely in house by 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 naturally-aspirated, 7.0-litre, V12 petrol engine.
With a power plant churning out over 800 bhp at peak developed in conjunction with Aston Martin Racing, this front-mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports car draws extensively on the brand’s rich GT motorsport experience. And utilising the techniques of world-class motorsport engineering, the supercar sees its power-to-weight ratio exceed those of the GTE cars that compete in the FIA’s annual World Endurance Championship.
Prior to taking delivery of their cars, owners will be offered the opportunity to take part in an extensive and detailed programme of intensive track driver training. Experienced racers including Aston Martin Racing’s Le Mans-winning Darren Turner will support owners on their learning journey, 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. – Aston Martin Press
