The Vulcan is described by the company as ‘the most extreme Aston Martin in our 102-year history’ which means that the power output has even eclipsed the 750 bhp of the 7.3 litre One-77, somewhere around 800 bhp. As it’s been solely built for the track, the car is in direct competition to such machines as the McLaren’s P1 GTR and Ferrari’s FXX-K. And also like these cars, it is taken for granted that the purchase price will include exclusive opportunities to sample the car at race tracks around the globe together with a team to set up both car and driver.
No exact price has been given but it will be in the region of £1.5 million plus local taxes but it’s a given that production will be severely limited to only 24 examples.
As the Vulcan is entirely carbon fibre, I think that it is safe to assume the starting point for the car has been the One-77.
We will get a first proper look as the Vulcan will debut at Geneva on the 3rd March 2015.
