This is Aston Martin’s newest, most intense and exhilarating creation ever, the 2016 Vulcan. Only 24 were built, probably because someone at Aston Martin’s Gaydon, England headquarters rightly judged the world simply was not ready for more. Whatever the truth may be, this track-only Aston Martin, serial number 11 of the 24 built, is one of the most exclusive automobiles in the world, capable of transporting extraordinarily fortunate souls into raptures of sound and fury unlike any other.
Developed in partnership with Aston Martin Racing, the Vulcan’s 800-plus HP naturally aspirated engine is based on that of their GT3 racer, but enlarged to a full 7.0 liters and electronically managed by Cosworth ECU technology. The Inconel and titanium exhaust system’s best feature comes during downshifts, when the side pipes crackle and pop while emitting flashes of blue flames. The Vulcan engine can be set at three output levels, allowing the driver to experience increasing power as his skill level improves with track time.
