The Aston Martin Vulcan track-only supercar has been officially unveiled ahead of its scheduled debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, next week.
Aston Martin has officially pulled the wraps off its newest creation, the Vulcan, which is basically what rumors were saying, a track-only toy. The model in question has been apparently designed to go head-to-head with the best vehicles in the world, as the company is stating, and it has received an aggressive look, with a unique front fascia, with the large grille integrated in the front splitter and with a lot of styling cues which have been borrowed from classic Aston Martins.
The new Aston Martin Vulcan has received a carbon fiber monocoque, magnesium torque tube with carbon fiber propeller shaft, limited slip differential, Brembo racing calipers for the carbon ceramic racing discs, 380 mm in size at the front and 360 mm in size at the rear, a bespoke suspension system with adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars, variable traction control system, driver adjustable ABS and much more.
Power to the newest British track-only toy is being provided by a 7.0 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, which is capable of producing no less than 800 HP (595 kW). The unit is connected to a 6-speed sequential transmission. Aston Martin says that the new Vulcan has a power-to-weight ratio which exceeds the GTE cars competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship. Only 24 units of the model will be produced and owners will be receiving instruction from experienced racers. More details on the racing car will be announced in Geneva.
