What did you expect from what the brand refers to as its “wildest car ever?” Proof of the Vulcan’s wild side is its racing-derived V12 engine from the brand’s Vantage GT3 race car. As if that’s not enough, the blokes at Aston Martin gave it an extra liter of displacement, growing from a monstrous 6.0-liter to a 7.0-liter unit and unleashing a heady 820 horsepower and “truly extreme performance,” said Aston Martin.
And since the Vulcan is not required to adhere to noise regulations, Aston could give it a God-like soundtrack so loud that Jeremy Clarkson had to wear a face microphone to be heard amidst all the fury. Jeremy had the Vulcan in the lowest driving setting, limiting the power output to only 550 horsepower. But still, the noise is unholy, and it gets louder the deeper you push the pedal.
Moreover, the Vulcan features a list of performance equipment. It has race-ready suspension, an FIA-compliant steel roll cage, and a bevy of aero-enhancing body kits to produce over 3,000 pounds of downforce, more than the Vulcan’s 2,976-pound (1,350 kg) curb weight. Inside, it has figure-hugging Recaro carbon fiber seats and an F1-style steering wheel.
