Set ot be built in alimited edition of just 24 units, the Vulcan was styled entirely in-house by the Aston Martin design team led by Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman.
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.
The advanced carbon fiber monocoque and body constructed by Aston Martin’s long-term specialist body engineering and manufacturing partner Multimatic.
Additional technical highlights include an integral limited-slip differential, magnesium torque tube with carbon fibre propeller shaft and Brembo racing calipers acting on carbon ceramic racing disc brakes which measure 380mm in diameter at the front and 360mm at the rear.
Drive is channelled to the 345/30 x19 rear wheels and Michelin race specification tyres through a race-bred rear mid-mounted Xtrac six-speed sequential shift gearbox.
Track-derived pushrod suspension with anti-dive geometry is complemented by Multimatic’s Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars front and rear, driver-adjustable anti-lock braking, and variable traction control.
The new track car will comply with all relevant FIA race safety requirements.
Prior to taking delivery of their cars, owners will be offered the opportunity to take part in an extensive and detailed programme of intensive track driver training.
