Classified of the week: Aston Martin Vulcan
One of just 24 examples, yours for £2.7million
Aston DB11 not quite quick or mad enough? Not content with tearing up the outside lane of the motorway in a measly V12 Vantage? Fear not. Track day aficionados, your time has come. Someone is selling their track-only hypercar, the Aston Martin Vulcan.
Yep. Chassis number 14 out of just 24 models created, in stunning Special Verde Ithaca green with less than 200 miles on the clock. And you can buy it. We don’t necessarily know when you’d use it, but you can. For the bargain price of £2.7million.
Not sold? Don’t forget, the Vulcan gets Aston’s naturally aspirated 7.0-litre V12 engine with over 800 horses of power and is made entirely from carbon fibre. The side-exhausts shoot flames, too.Inside is really very little, except an F1-style steering wheel, a TFT driver display and some Alcantara finish. The indicators are in the usual place, though – not that you need indicators on a track-only hypercar.
Original buyers were entitled to warm-up training in a V12 Vantage S, One-77 and even a Vantage GT4 race car, although it’s unconfirmed if a second owner gets such expertise. Maybe it’s best left to ogle at instead.
It even took on the Cold War-era long-range bomber the Avro Vulcan plane earlier in the year, which makes for some pretty sexy bedroom posters if you can’t survive the night without the feel of Alcantara on your bare hands.
Still not convinced? Watch Chris Harris cut loose in the Vulcan at Abu Dhabi’s F1 circuit for a special test. You can snap up your once-in-a-lifetime second-hand purchase here.
