Aston Martin Vulcan road-legal car planned image

Aston Martin is currently looking to offer a road-legal version of the impressive Vulcan.

After being officially unveiled just earlier this year, making its public debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and then brought to a lot of other events, the new Aston Martin Vulcan is now ending up in our news once again, this time with the help of a new report. According to Autovisie, the model in question is planned as a road-legal variant too, as Aston Martin is currently believed to be investigating such a conversion of the track-only supercar. The British brand is admitting that this is a difficult task and if it will succeed, than the Vulcan is expected to tackle the Porsche 918 Spyder, the McLaren P1 and the Ferrari LaFerrari.

If it will be approved and developed, the new Aston Martin Vulcan, in its production form, will be significantly more expensive than the track-only model, which has been priced at 1.8 million GBP, or the equivalent of 2.5 million euros. While the track beast will be limited to just 24 units, the production version will be put together in more examples. The Aston Martin Vulcan is coming with a unique exterior design, with a carbon fiber monocoque, magnesium torque tube with carbon fiber propeller shaft, limited slip differential, bespoke suspension with adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars, carbon ceramic brake discs and so on. Under its hood, the 7.0 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine is found, producing more than 800 HP (595 kW), connected to a 6-speed sequential transmission.
