Aston Martin has premiered the carbon fiber-bodied track-exclusive Vulcan a couple of years ago, but the monster machine is still the stuff of dreams – especially when more of them gather on the track.
No less than seven out of a total of only 24 examples were on the same sheet of tarmac – the Circuit of the Americas – for a Vulcan owner’s event – so you can imagine how many fiery cylinders were there. The naturally aspirated V12 engine delivers an astonishing 820 horsepower, and it’s quite a difference compared to other track-exclusive hypercars such as the Ferrari FXX K and the McLaren P1 GTR hybrids. The Vulcan, costing a cool $2.3-million a pop, is of course something to brag about, so it should come as no surprise that no less than 7 out of 24 were on the menu at a special event organized by Aston Martin at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
By the way, in case you can’t stand to showcase your beast in front of a very specific crowd – the one attending track events – there’s still a solution for your craving of road-legal Vulcan shenanigans. The specialty engineering company RML is going to fix your track machine (for a six-figure sum, reportedly) to become a road-legal supercar and according to Aston Martin’s CEO, Andy Palmer, about four or five Vulcans will take that opportunity.
