Aston Martin Vulcan Makes Debut At Goodwood Festival Of Speed 2015
For those of you who don’t know about the Aston Martin Vulcan, this vehicle is an exclusive limited edition, track-focused supercar of which only 24 tailored pieces will be made. This very rare supercar made its debut at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015. Piloted by Aston Martin’s factory race driver Darren Turner, the Vulcan got the crowds roaring due to the magical music that the supercar’s engine played on the track.
The Vulcan gets its power from a naturally aspirated 7.0-litre, V12 engine, which according to the British sports car manufacturer puts out more than 800 PS of power. The vehicle’s weight is same as that of the GT3 race car, 1300 kgs, while the later only manages to produce lesser power than the Vulcan. Therefore, the Vulcan is the most powerful car Aston Martin has produced till date, beating the iconic One-77 hypercar that was built between 2009 and 2012, which put out a massive 760 PS of power. The company claims that the Vulcan can sprint to 100 km/hr from standstill in under 3 seconds, going all the way up to a top speed of 320 km/hr.
The giant 7-litre engine is placed in a front-mid configuration, behind the front axle. Power is only sent to the rear wheels through an Xtrac 6-speed sequential gearbox, like the way it should be in a car such as this one. The whole body is a carbon-fibre monocoque built by Multimatic, which is Aston Martin’s body engineering and manufacturing partner. Stopping power for the supercar comes from awesome Brembo carbon ceramic racing disc brakes that measure 380 mm at the front and 360 mm at the rear respectively. The supercar rides on a massive set of 345 section Michelin race rubber tyres.
This truly amazing Aston Martin Vulcan is very rare, so take a look at the youtube video and leave your comments after witnessing the epicness.
