This year luxury carmaker Aston Martin announced the arrival of its response to the multi-million dollar supercar competition that has been escalating: The $2.3 million dollar Aston Martin Vulcan. The track focused Vulcan is so intense and aggressive that the brand requires that drivers be specially trained to operate it in order to, you know, stay alive.
The Aston Martin Vulcan hypercar is in direct competition with other multi-million dollar rides and will likely hold her own.
Because the throaty Aston Martin Vulcan is not exactly ready at this stage in the development funnel, buyers are being trained on lesser models like the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S. The Vantage S is sibling to the rare One-77, featuring its mostly carbon fiber frame tub and full FIA specification roll cage. Just 24 Aston Martin Vulcan cars will be produced, bringing in approximately $56 million for the company. Because it is likely that all units will be presold, it will make a fine payday, indeed!
What sets the multi-million dollar Aston Martin Vulcan apart from other cars in its class? While the exact specifications are still being perfected, we can anticipate a naturally aspirated 7-liter V12 engine pushing forth around 800 horses capable of demolishing the 0-60 mile per hour destination in less than 3 seconds. Top speed for the Aston Martin Vulcan will likely exceed the standard 200 mile per hour mark, which has become the seemingly unspoken goal for supercars. Aston Martin has also shared that the Vulcan will feature track-derived pushrod suspension complete with anti-dive geometry and driver-adjustable anti-lock brakes with available traction.
