Get ready for the Aston Martin Vulcan
Cool name, even cooler premise. The video above, ladies and gentlemen, showcases just how feral the brand new Aston Martin ‘Vulcan’ will sound. We’ll give you a moment.
Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? It’s only a teaser, with the official reveal of this brand-new Aston set for the upcoming Geneva Motor Show on 3 March.
Until then, we’ve only got this noise, and a few crumbs from our Gaydon sources. We’re told the Vulcan will be the most extreme car in Aston’s long and storied history - that’s 102 years - which puts it in some mighty powerful company.
It’ll be a track-only supercar, with a production run limited to less than 30 models, and is inspired by Aston’s motorsport programme. Engine? With it being the most extreme Aston ever, we’d expect some iteration of the firm’s venerable V12, possibly pushing out as much as the 740bhp of the One-77.
It will be rear-wheel-drive, lightweight, and fast. Expect a 0-62mph time in the low threes, and a Big Number top speed.
