Following alongside Ferrari's FXXK and McLaren's P1 GTR comes the latest offering on the track-only hypercar scene, the astounding Aston Martin Vulcan.
Born from the One-77 road car, the Vulcan's mighty 7-litre V12 is based on the powerplant of the GT3 race car. Over 800bhp is transferred through the straight cut, sequential gearbox from Xtrac, while 380mm Brembo ceramic racing brakes provide devastating stopping power. The Vulcan's race car credentials are further enforced thanks to it's all carbon-fibre construction (including the racing seats), an integrated FIA roll cage, polycarbonate screen and bespoke titanium exhaust.
Each of the 24 production cars will cost around £1.8 million, a decent few hundered thousand cheaper than the FXX K and P1 GTR. And unlike it's rivals, the Vulcan is also eligible for certain classes of motorsport with very little modification. You pays your money and takes your choice!
From 2017, Aston Martin can further enhance your Vulcan to 'AMR Pro' spec, with enhanced weight distribution and shorter gear ratios ... at a cost of £100-£150k!
