Aston Martin Vulcan Owners Event – Video
The $2.3-million Vulcan has long been sold out and recently seven out of a total of 24 owners came together at an event specially organized by Aston Martin at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. While the Vulcan in its standard configuration can’t be legally driven on public roads, there is a solution for that. For the right sum (believed to have six figures), engineering company RML is willing to convert the track beast into a road-legal supercar — a process which takes about three months to complete. According to Aston Martin’s CEO, Andy Palmer, at least four or five Vulcans will go through the conversion.
The Aston Martin Vulcan is a two-door, two-seater, V12 high-performance lightweight track-only limited edition car launched in 2015 by Aston Martin at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Its engine, mounted in an aluminium alloy chassis with a carbon fiber body, delivers 800 brake horsepower (600 kW). The Vulcan is fitted with carbon ceramic brakes, magnesium torque tube with a carbon fibre propeller shaft, limited-slip differential, Xtrac 6-speed sequential gearbox and has a curb weight of 1,350 kg (2,980 lb).
The Vulcan is designed by Aston Martin’s creative officer Marek Reichman, taking inspirations from Aston Martin current models Vantage, DB9 and One-77. The Vulcan is to be a limited edition vehicle, only 24 cars will be made priced at $2.3 million.
