Aston Martin Vulcan Revealed



Quote:
Aston Martin has revealed an all new track-only supercar that takes the brand’s qualities of performance and style to outrageous new levels.

Set to make its world premiere at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the British automaker has pulled the wraps on the Vulcan, a new supercar packing over 800 hp in an all carbon fiber body.

The Vulcan will be limited to just 24-units worldwide and those lucky owners will be offered the opportunity to participate in an intensive track driver training prior to receiving their Vulcan. Unlike other track-special hypercars from the likes of Ferrari or McLaren, the Vulcan isn’t a hybrid and is powered by a 7.0-liter V12 engine that was developed with Aston Martin Racing.

In fact, according to the company, its power-to-weight ratio exceeds those of the GTE cars that compete in the FIA’s World Endurance Championship.

The Vulcan was styled entirely in-house by the Aston Martin design team led by Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman.

The front mid-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car also previews the brand’s future design language that will make its way to next-generation Aston Martin models.

The carbon fiber monocoque and body is constructed by Multimatic while the Vulcan also features an integral limited-slip differential, magnesium torque tube with carbon fiber propeller shaft and Brembo racing calipers on carbon-ceramic racking disk brakes. It will tear up the track on 19-inch wheels wrapped with 345/30/19 rubber from Michelin and the powerplant is mated to an Xtrac six-speed sequential shift gearbox.

“Taking the extensive learning from our various successful racing programmes and applying it to this exceptional track car for customers has been an exciting and sometimes challenging task for the team here at Gaydon,” said David King, Aston Martin’s Director of Special Projects and Motorsport. “Our deep and broad motorsport experience, allied to our renowned road car expertise, has allowed us to make the Aston Martin Vulcan the absolutely compelling proposition it is today.”

Expect more details on the Aston Martin Vulcan when it bows at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, where AutoGuide.com will be reporting live.
