As the company reports, the design language hints at the next generation of Aston Martin sports cars.

The front mid-engined, rear-wheel drive supercar is powered by the company’s naturally-aspirated, 7.0-litre V12 petrol engine, developed in conjunction with Aston Martin Racing.

Adopting the know how gained in the GT motorsport experience, the Vulcan has a power-to-weight ratio that exceeds those of the GTE cars which compete in the FIA’s annual World Endurance Championship.
