Aston Martin Vulcan promo 600x338 at Aston Martin Vulcan Goes Wild in New Promo Clip

Nobody’s going to blame you if you have mixed feelings about Aston Martin Vulcan. It is a confusing thing, this car. It’s a multi-million dollar limited-edition, track-only, hyper-car that looks rather ugly but is so cool you can’t help being strongly attracted to it. And now Aston has made a new track promo for the Vulcan which is going to make things worse, by which we mean you are going to want the car even more after watching the footage.

It’s amazing they sell this thing to anyone who can pay its big fat price. Aston Martin Vulcan is a full-on, proper racing car. It’s kind of like selling belt-fed machine guns to civilians. Oh wait, they do that too.

Aston Martin Vulcan Highlights:


  • Designed and developed in conjunction with Motorsport Partner, Aston Martin Racing, the unique engine is based around the architecture of the engine found in our GT3 race car, the naturally aspirated V12 has been enlarged to 7.0 and comprises a new block, pistons, liners, conrods, crank – all controlled by a Cosworth ECU.
  • The engine is located completely behind the front axle for better weight distribution and therefore dynamic performance.
  • The engine will feature 3-position adjustable power outputs which allows the driver to unleash true performance potential as their track skills develop.


  • Supplied by world-renowned motorsport transmission manufacturer Xtrac, the 6-speed transaxle sequential gearbox is controlled by steering wheel-mounted paddles (not fixed on steering column).
  • The 600E gearbox houses a straight-cut gearset with drop gears to the crown wheel and pinion and, at 200+ mph, is geared for a higher top speed than our GT race cars (depending on tyre and downforce set up).
  • Compared to a standard 600 gearbox the design for the Aston Martin Vulcan features a higher grade of steel for the gears as well as a unique set of gear ratios. The gearbox weighs only 70 kg and features a lightweight aluminium casing.

Front and Rear Suspension

  • The front suspension is comprised of a Double wishbone arrangement with anti-dive geometry operated via a pushrod mechanism.
  • The rear suspension comprises Independent double wishbones with anti-squat and anti-lift geometry, again pushrod operated. The front and rear anti-roll bars are also adjustable.
  • The dampers are of a 4-way adjustable design featuring Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) technology. These state-of-the-art valves enable both high and low speed bump and rebound to be adjusted independently on each individual damper. Blue = (B)ump, Red = (R)ebound
  • The rear dampers are horizontally opposed whereas the front dampers are mounted front to rear to enable weight save.
