The Aston Martin Vulcan has landed
First owners take delivery of 820bhp V12 track toy. Meet your new wallpaper
First comes track tuition in an Aston Martin V12 Vantage S. Then a Vantage GT4 racer. And then - after expert tutelage from AM works driver Darren Turner - do you get to drive your very own Aston Martin Vulcan.
And by ‘you’, we mean of course if ‘you’ are one of the lucky 24 customers who have bought Aston’s £1.8 million, 820bhp, 7.0-litre V12-engined ode to track-day heaven. The company confirmed that the first set of customers have undergone this very process. That’s them, above.
The test took place at Abu Dhabi’s Formula One circuit - Yas Marina - and each driver was given passenger-side instruction on every lap, while being tested day and night in order to fully experience the car in different atmospheric conditions. So yeah, a bloody good day then.
Darren Turner said: “The priority for all of us on the team was to produce a car that provides immense enjoyment for the customers. Judging by the reactions we have seen this week that goal has been achieved and surpassed.”
