Aston Martin Vulcan revealed in official details and photos
Ahead of official debut at Geneva Motor Show in March, Aston Martin has revealed photos and new details of their track-only Vulcan sports car.
The new Vulcan will be powered by a 7.0 liter V12 engine offering 597 kW (800 hp) and mated to a rear mounted Xtrac six speed sequential transmission via magnesium torque tube and carbon fiber propeller shaft. The Aston Martin Vulcan sits on 345/30 race spec Michelin tyres and 19” alloy wheels while it is brought to a halt via Brembo racing calipers and carbon ceramic discs.
On the exterior, Aston Martin Vulcan will boast of a well designed front fascia with a huge front grille integrated into the front splitter. Built for track, the model sports carbon fiber monocoque and limited slip differential and a power to weight ratio that exceeds GTE race cars that participate in FIA World Endurance Championships.
Designed in-house by chief designer Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Vulcan is a super exclusive sports car, production of which is limited to just 24 units. And probably, by the time you read this, all 24 would have been sold. Lets talk about the price tag of Vulcan. Each of these beauties is priced from £1.8 million (Rs 17.3 crores or $2.79 million).
Like Ferrari FXX K and McLaren P1 GTR, Aston Martin Vulcan will be an exclusive track only model. 24 buyers of these Aston Martin Vulcan models, which once launched, will compete with the best of the cars in the world. All 24 buyers will be offered an on track training course on V12 Vantage S, One-77 street and on Vantage GT4 race car, before they drive a Vulcan.
More details will be made known when the Aston Martin Vulcan goes on display at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show in Hall No.5 Stand No 5253 on Tuesday March 3, 2015. Until then, scan through the image gallery below or listen to the Vulcan roar in the video attached.
