Vulcan is the mythological Roman God of Fire. This fire is required for forging metals both past and present. Aston Martin went one step further and stepped into the future with the creation of its own mythological creature, The Aston Martin Vulcan. The Vulcan’s roar will remind you of that volcano eruption that shakes the ground, like this car will shake you to the core. This supercar roar comes from a version of the company’s familiar V-12 engine that’s been developed with assistance from Aston Martin Racing. It displaces 7.0 liters and produces 820 horsepower.
The sheer rarity alone makes owning this vehicle of epic proportions nothing short of incredible. Just 24 have been produced of this extreme not-quite-roadgoing Aston Martin, track-only hypercar that’s clearly aimed at the adrenaline junkies. The engine is located completely behind the front axle for better weight distribution and, therefore, dynamic performance; and the powerful machine features 3-position adjustable power outputs which allows the driver to unleash true performance potential as their track skills develop. As if 800 ponies at its disposal wasn’t enough, the entire vehicle is made with lightweight materials, making it the lightest Aston Martin to date.
