The Goodwood Festival of Speed kicked off yesterday, June 24, to a score of displays and unveilings from the world’s top automotive manufacturers. Aston Martin is in attendance with their largest presence at the festival yet, which includes the insane Vulcan.
First introduced to the world Feb. 24, the Vulcan packs 811 hp under the hood, all generated by the company’s most potent 7.0-liter V12 engine yet. Combined with rear wheel drive and front-mid engine placement, this track car can lay some serious rubber to the asphalt. So, of course, Aston Martin had to demonstrate.
Listen to the engine heat up, watch the rubber start to burn and imagine the smell as you watch the Vulcan launch forward in the video below, added to YouTube this morning by Aston Martin. It’s the Vulcan burning out and launching, and it’s a more exhilarating way to wake up than a cup of coffee.
A few photos posted to the marque’s Facebook page show the Vulcan sitting in its display spot at Goodwood’s Supercar Paddock, waiting with a few other Aston Martins for the show to begin. As mentioned in a June 18 press release, the Vantage GT12, Lagonda Taraf super saloon, V12 Vantage S Roadster, Rapide S and more are all on display with them.
