Aston Martin has introduced the Vulcan, a track-only supercar. Born out of extensive motorsport experience the 800-plus bhp, all-carbon fibre Aston Martin Vulcan promises truly extreme performance is limited to just 24 examples worldwide.
With a design language hinting at the next generation of Aston Martin sports cars, this supercar is powered by the most potent iteration yet of the company’s naturally-aspirated, 7.0-litre V12 petrol engine.
The car features a carbon fibre monocoque and body constructed by Aston Martin’s specialist body engineering and manufacturing partner Multimatic, integral limited-slip differential, magnesium torque tube with carbon fibre propeller shaft and Brembo racing calipers acting on carbon ceramic racing disc brakes which measure 380mm in diameter at the front and 360mm at the rear. Drive is channelled to the 345/30 x19 rear wheels and Michelin race specification tyres through a race-bred rear mid-mounted Xtrac six-speed sequential shift gearbox.
