Vulcan

Track-only 800+bhp limited edition celebrates Le Mans achievements

At the very pinnacle of the hypercar market there are some cars so rare they’ll never be seen on the road. Aston Martin’s Vulcan is one such machine, a track-only limited edition of 24 cars that requires both a high degree of driving skill and deep pockets on the part of the owner. The result is the ultimate track-day weapon, also suitable for one-make racing or open category invitation races.

Overview

Aston Martin Vulcan

The Vulcan follows in the wheeltracks of Aston Martin’s last ultra-rare high performance car, the One-77. Unlike its predecessor, the Vulcan is intended only for track use and will be both more exclusive and more expensive than the 77 examples that were produced of the One-77. In contrast, just 24 examples of the Vulcan will be built, the number a deliberate reference to the company’s long and impressive Le Mans history.

The layout of the Vulcan is front mid-engined, with the entire engine sitting behind the front axle. The shape is dramatically different to the current Aston Martin range, with a low nose and new-look slimline headlamps. It’s also far lower, wider and with a multi-adjustable rear wing. Downforce levels attainable are in excess of the GT3 race cars.

The driver sits encased in a strong carbon fibre tub with a carbon fibre body featuring detachable panels; as a track-only machine the Vulcan is left hand drive only. To ensure that owners are capable of handling the 800+bhp power, the Vulcan is supplied as a package with a three-year Experience and Driver Training Programme, allowing the owner to graduate through a supervised, graduating scale of increasing power and performance. As a thoughtful touch, owners will be invited to Gaydon to specify their Vulcan and be measured for their race suit.

Technology

Aston Martin Vulcan

At the heart of the Vulcan is a 7.0 litre V12 engine developed in conjunction with Aston Martin Racing that produces over 800bhp. To put it in context, that’s more than a Le Mans LMP1 car. Power is transmitted to the rear-mounted Xtrac six-speed sequential gearbox via a carbon-fibre propeller shaft. Suspension is by pushrods with anti-dive geometry, and is fully adjustable to enable the driver to set up the Vulcan to the circuit or conditions. Carbon ceramic racing disc brakes are gripped by Brembo racing callipers. Power levels, traction control and brake balance are all adjustable from the cockpit.

The Vulcan complies with all relevant FIA race and safety requirements including the Front Head Restrain system, so it will be ready to race in open or invitation races - as well as the ultimate ‘Top Trumps’ in track day machinery.
