An ultra-exclusive 2016 Aston Martin Vulcan is being offered for sale by Mecum Auctions next month. The track-only car is build number 11 of just 24 examples built by the storied British automaker.

Power for the Vulcan comes from a naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V-12 built by Aston Marin Racing. and is rated at 820 hp. Power transmitted to an Xtrac paddle-shifted, rear-mounted six-speed sequential transaxle via a carbon fiber driveshaft. Claimed top speed is north of 200 mph.

The chassis is based around the road going Aston Martin One-77 supercar's carbon fiber tub built by Multimatic. It also features an integrated FIA-legal steel roll cage and rear subframe. The driveshaft is housed in a lightweight magnesium torque tube.

The suspension consists of a four-way adjustable pushrod double wishbone with adjustable sway bars at both ends. Stopping power comes from Brembo carbon ceramic discs and an adjustable Bosch ABS system. Power is transmitted to the pavement by forged alloy, center-locking wheels (19x11.5-inch front, 19x12.5-inch rear) wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires (305/30-19 front, 345/30-19).

Inside, Recaro supplies a set of full carbon fiber race seats with Schroth six-point racing harnesses. Other race bits include an adjustable AP Racing Pedal box, adjustable steering column, bespoke carbon fiber steering wheel with integrated vehicle controls, a Cosworth dash and data acquisition system, and more.

Aerodynamic bits include a front splitter, rear splitter, and large adjustable rear wing. Other exterior details include LED headlights and futuristic 'Light Blade' lamps in the rear, and IsoClima Polycarbonate windows. There is also a set of on-board air jacks.

The car features an unspecified purple hue on the exterior over a black interior. The number 11 Aston Martin Vulcan will go to auction Saturday August in Monterey. Check out Mecum Auctions for more images of the track-only British supercar.
