Aston Martin is making is all sorts of news now-a-days, be it the DB10 for the next James Bond flick - Spectre, or be it the recently unveiled and the fastest Aston Martin ever - the Aston Martin Vulcan. Revealed ahead of its global launch at Geneva Motorshow to be held on 3rd March, 2015, the Vulcan will be built only in limited numbers (24 to be precise) and only the customers who have signed up for the racing development program by the company will be considered for this Supercar.
Made completely by Carbon fibre and designed by Multimatic, a Canada based design firm which is also working on the Ford GT, the Vulcan is a track-only beast approved by the FIA. The Vulcan hints out the design cues that Aston Martin will incorporate in its future vehicles and the military green color with orange inserts surely looks aggressive.
Mechanically, the car will come powered by a 7.0 litre V12 engine instead of a 5.9 litre engine and will produce in-excess of 800hp, though the specs are not confirmed yet. The engine will be mated to a six-speed sequential transmission and will get a pushrod suspension with adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars. The braking duties are performed by a carbon ceramic discs and adjustable anti-lock brakes with Brembo calipers.
Since the Vulcan is a track-only car, the owners will get classroom lessons from the Factory pilot Darren Turner who is a 2007 and 2008 winner in the GT1 class. The coaching will also include driving in V12 Vantage S and One-77 as they work their way up to getting the most out of their Vulcan. Owners will also get to book their time in Turner's Base Performance Simulators for virtual driving time.
Sadly, to know the complete details of the Vulcan, we have to wait till Geneva Motorshow.
