Aston Martin Vulcan Unleashed In A Heart-Stopping Video

Just when you though Porsche’s electric car green light was big news today, Aston Martin have thrown two fingers up at the tree huggers and unleashed a video of their most extreme vehicle ever created – the big bad Vulcan.

Feast your ears to the intoxicating sound of the 7.0-litre V12 as it churns out a massive 800hp to the rear wheels. Tyre smoke: mandatory. It’s a special project even for the British marque as the briefing went something like build what you want without rules. As a result, it falls under no specific racing category and is built purely for speed and exhilaration.

The chassis is built from aluminium whilst bodywork is entirely carbon fibre to bring the car to a weight of 1,360kg. Following this school of old theme, the Vulcan also lacks any hybrid drivetrain and turbochargers. Those keen better prepare their bank accounts for a serious hit. Only 24 samples will be made with a price tag of over US$2 million.

We’ll settle with the video.
