So the new Aston Martin Vulcan track car made its debut at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, wowing the crowd with its unique blend of mean looks, blistering performance, and nasty, nasty soundtrack. It’s time to get up close and personal with this beast and listen to what it has to say. The car sounds like it’s cursing under its breath!
The limited-edition Aston Martin Vulcan track car is one of the world’s most expensive toys, setting you back 1.5 million GBP or around 2.3 million USD. That is if you can get one. Such is the interest in limited production hyper cars that by the time they hit the press they are usually sold out.
Powering the Vulcan is Aston Martin’s 7.0 liter V12 engine from the One-77, stripped out of most of its sound-deadening features and given a boost to over 800 horsepower. Being a track car, the Vulcan comes with a spartan cabin featuring only a wheel and a digital display and bucket seats, full carbon fiber construction, and a massive aero kit, plus slick tires and the necessary safety features such as rolls bars and fire extinguisher.
