Aston Martin has announced the introduction of the Vulcan hypercar at the upcoming 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
After being shown at the 2015 New York Auto Show earlier this year, and then brought to the Old Continent for several events, the Aston Martin Vulcan will return to the U.S. once more, as the company has announced its introduction at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where it will be sharing the same space with the DBX Concept and with the 2016 DB9 GT.
The new Aston Martin Vulcan is getting features such as the adjustable anti-roll bars, the bespoke suspension system with adjustable dampers, the variable traction control system, the magnesium torque tube, the limited slip differential, the carbon fiber propeller shaft and so on. This is a track only hypercar which is taking aim at the McLaren P1 GTR and the Ferrari FXX K. It has been unveiled back in February and it made is public debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, a few weeks later.
The exotic model is bringing a carbon fiber monocoque, a large grille integrated in the front splitter, a unique front fascia with styling cues borrowed from the classic Aston Martins and others. Under its hood, a 7.0 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine can be found, rated at 800 HP (595 kW), connected to a 6-speed sequential transmission. The power-to-weight ratio of the Vulcan is said to exceed the one of the GTE cars which are competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship. Aston will only be assembling 24 examples of the Vulcan.
