The Aston Martin Vulcan Requires Special Training to Operate

The Aston Martin Vulcan is the latest high-performance offering from the badge with a $2.3 million dollar asking price and a rather exclusive production run of just 24 units. The new member of the fleet has not only a prestigious family behind it, but also a special driver training course commencing in 2016 to teach owners to operate the Vulcan properly and to her highest abilities.

The Aston Martin Vulcan owners will be offered the opportunity to train with experienced racing drivers on some of the world’s most prestigious tracks in order to fully grasp how to properly drive, control and unleash the Vulcan’s abilities. Even thought the Vulcan’s multi-million dollar price bracket is much higher than her $200k-$400k siblings, it is unlikely that these elite training courses are included in the asking price. The courses are intended to “Support owners on their learning journey”, according to the brand, and there will also be simulation training offered for owners. So why the extra care in regards to driving this car when some of the other Aston Martin cars are quite powerful?

The Aston Martin Vulcan at a glance:

  • This is a track-only variant, packing a robust 7.0-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine producing upwards of 800 horsepower.
  • For comparison purposes, super-sibling Aston Martin One-77 boasts a 7.3-liter V12 kicking out 750 horses, yet is cleared for road use.
  • The Vulcan was meticulously developed with input from Aston Martin Racing, which likely explains why she is track-only. There are components and specs that are probably not street legal.
  • Heavy use of light carbon fiber shaves weight and increases overall performance.

Full details will emerge for the Aston Martin Vulcan this week at the exhilarating Geneva Motor Show. Until that point, check out the short teaser clip below:
