Watch - Aston Martin Vulcan Hypercar Tears up the Track

Vulcan hypercar struts its stuff.

Dec 8, 2015

At the 2015 Geneva auto show, Aston Martin debuted the track-only Vulcan. Among other things, the Vulcan sported an enormous rear wing that extends beyond the width of the hypercar's bodywork, a unique cockpit design, an exterior design that breathes new life into the brand, and a few traditional Aston Martin touches.

The Aston Martin Vulcan hits the track in the latest video from the automaker, which spotlights different design elements that make this hypercar unique. That rear wing is hard to miss, but it's all but forgotten as soon as the driver revs the engine. That engine is a 7.0-liter V-12 that makes upwards of 800 hp.

With a price around $2 million-plus, the Vulcan joins the ranks of other ultra-expensive, track-only cars such as the McLaren P1 GTR, Pagani Zonda R, Ferrari FXX and FXX K, and the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento. This is just the first step in Aston's plan to expand its lineup to better compete with the likes of Ferrari and other top competitors, and with this track-focused, 225-mph hypercar, the automaker is well on its way.

Check out the video below to see the all-new Aston Martin Vulcan hypercar destroy the track.
