set to make its world debut at the 2015 geneva motor show, the aston martin ‘vulcan’ is a track-only supercar, limited to just 24 models, that hints at the british brand’s next-generation design language. the sports car is powered by a naturally-aspired, 7.0 liter V12 petrol engine, producing over 800 bhp and providing an extreme performance. together with this front mid-engine, the rear-wheel drive vehicle features a mounted Xtrac six-speed sequential shift gearbox, adjustable anti-lock braking and variable traction control, to help deliver an intense and exhilarating experience.
formed in house by the design team led by chief creative officer, marek reichman, the aston martin ‘vulcan’ has a carbon fiber monocoque that sees its power-to-weight ratio exceed cars which compete in the world endurance championship. it enhances the manufacturer’s extensive motorsport experience to not only offer its uncompromising performance, but also to meet the relevant FIA race safety requirements.
‘taking the extensive learning from our various successful racing programm and applying it to this exceptional track car for customers has been an exciting and sometimes challenging task for the team here at gaydon.’ said aston martin’s director of special projects and motorsport, david king.
‘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.’ he added.
