The Aston Martin Vulcan is a V12 high-performance lightweight track-only limited edition car launched in 2015, taking inspiration from Aston Martin’s then-current models of the Vantage, DB9 and One-77.
Its engine, a 7.0-litre naturally-aspirated V12, mounted in an aluminium alloy chassis with a carbon fibre body, delivers 820 hp (611 kW; 831 PS) at 7750 rpm and 590 lb⋅ft (800 N⋅m) at 6500 rpm. The Vulcan uses Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres. A limited-slip differential and a magnesium torque tube with a carbon fibre propeller shaft are included. Stopping power is aided thanks to carbon-ceramic brakes, which measure 380 mm (15 in) at the front, 360 mm (14 in) at the rear.
With specs like this, it’s clear to see why the Aston Martin Vulcan is a fearsome machine that demands respect on the track.
