Aston Martin Vulcan Pairs Well with the Avro Vulcan

The Aston Martin Vulcan is pretty much the most powerful thing the brand has produced lately, an extreme track-focused beast given the look of a show car. There is also another famous Vulcan in the UK—the Avro Vulcan aircraft. Watch the two epic creations encounter each other in the short clip below!

The Avro Vulcan is stunning in the air and the Aston Martin Vulcan has the ground effects covered. The Avro version is an iconic jet bomber craft that originated back in the 1950s. It is unclear if the aircraft is the car’s namesake, but it is nice to think as much. The Vulcan car retains a naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V12 engine during the time of the hybrid, and churns forth 800 horses for the road to reckon with. There will only be 24 examples of the car crafted, and all are likely pre-sold. read more

The Future Form: Aston Martin Changes Shape with the Vulcan

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. read more

What Happens When Buyers Demand A Street Legal Aston Martin Vulcan?

Aston Martin Vulcan

The Aston Martin Vulcan emerged and laid absolute waste to previous expectations of the brand. With radical exterior styling cues and a 7.0-liter engine with a serious drinking problem, it is no wonder buyers are now demanding a street-legal version of the epic beast. What is even better is that Aston Martin is actually entertaining the notion!

Reports state that Aston Martin is indeed looking into offering a street legal version of the Vulcan, breaking the track-only variant out and onto the public ways. Aston Martin product manager Simon Croft shared that clients have expressed great desire to own one with street status. This does not mean that a toned-down Vulcan variant would be an ideal commuter—just that it would be legit to take out on the weekends and also to car shows and similar events. Let’s face the facts: feeding 800 thirsty horses is not a light expenditure on the bank account. read more

The Aston Martin Vulcan Is Proving Itself All Around the World

The track-only Aston Martin Vulcan has been busy proving its beast mode at events all over the world. The racer climbed the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Sussex and took on 2 flying laps at the 24 Hours of Spa in Belgium to help revv up the crowd prior to the start of the endurance race.
The clip above shows more of the Vulcan in action.

The Aston Martin Vulcan is a 7.0-liter 800 horsepower weapon. Just 24 units of the Vulcan are planned for production, and buyers will have to separate from around $2.3 million USD in order to own one of them. Some of the Aston Martin Vulcan’s siblings competed in the race, making it a fitting introduction indeed. Will the Vulcan participate in an endurance race soon? That remains to be seen. In the meantime, the mad machine is making her publicity rounds and showing off all of her beauty and brawn. read more

Aston Martin Vulcan Will Boast 24 Limited Edition Cars

Aston Martin Vulcan

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! read more

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? read more
