The old saying goes something like this: “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it”. A dominating percentage of automakers take that phrase directly to heart when it comes to production because it is expensive to switch things up too drastically and risky to mess with something buyers adore. But after an exceedingly long stretch of making vehicles that look similar year after year, even brands like Aston Martin are brave enough to churn forth something bold. Behold the Aston Martin Vulcan—what the brand will likely look like for the next 30 years.
Aston Martin Vulcan
The Aston Martin Vulcan came out a while back and we discussed it, and it continues to gain traction along the touring circuit while making cameos at places like Pebble Beach and automotive shows. The Vulcan is a shapely sibling that certainly helps bring out the best in the DBX and Lagonda Taraf concept cars. In fact, if you were to line them all up next to each other and account for various tweaks in the natural concept process, I would say you would be looking at the future of Aston Martin.
The Aston Martin Vulcan is the most aggressive track variant, boasting a glorious naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V12 sending 800 horses on their way out. Demand for a road variant is high, and the brand appears to be listening carefully. The Aston Martin DBX concept looks like a lifted and little SUV, packing an electric powertrain and AWD. The Lagonda Taraf was created exclusively for just a small number of areas, but could reflect a future styling made for others. We are watching to see what the brand has planned for the next 100-year cycle!
