This is the Aston Martin Vulcan and I Want One
Over on The Verge they recently published some pics on what might be Aston Marin’s craziest car ever.
Introducing The Vulcan. This beaty is going to be released officially at the Geneva International Motor show.
- Just 24 will be going on sale.
- Engine configuration is a 7.0-liter V12 engine, upwards of 800 brak horse power
- The price tag will be £1.5 million ($2.33 million, plus local taxes)
- It is a track only car so no driving this baby down to the local pub
From the team at The Verge:The Vulcan itself is constructed around a two-seater carbon fibre monocoque and body (built by long-term Aston Martin’s partner Multimatic), with the V12
The Vulcan itself is constructed around a two-seater carbon fibre monocoque and body (built by long-term Aston Martin’s partner Multimatic), with the V12 engine mounted front-midship. There’s an Xtrac six-speed sequential gearbox adapted from Aston Martin’s GTE race cars and a magnesium driveshaft. The Vulcan has the same 2.8-meter wheelbase as the One-77, with the wheels equipped with ceramic racing brake discs measuring 380mm in diameter at the front and 360mm at the rear. Supercars need superbrakes.
Yeah I want one. Don’t expect to find one of these on the second hand used car lot anytime soon.
