Aston Martin’s 800bhp Vulcan is beautiful, will bring you to your knees

If we’re brutally honest with ourselves, this post should probably come with a NSFW warning because, quite frankly, the Aston Martin Vulcan is nothing if not explicit.

This 800bhp stunner, which is set to make its debut at the Geneva Auto Show, features an all carbon-fibre body and is meant to show off its maker’s racing heritage. Styled in-house by the Aston Martin design team, led by Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, the Vulcan is powered by the company’s naturally-aspirated, 7.0-litre V12 petrol engine.

More specifically, says Aston Martin, the Vulcan is inspired by the company’s plays in the GT motorsport space. In fact, it claims, the car’s power-to-weight ratio exceeds those of the GTE cars which compete in the FIA’s annual World Endurance Championship.

Even if you’re part of the one percent and can actually afford the Vulcan, you’ll probably still battle to get your hands on one. You see, Aston Martin is releasing just 24 of them. It does however appear that it’s well worth trying everything you can to get your hands on one.

In a first for the British marque, owners will be able to tailor their track day experience through what Aston Martin calls “a graduating scale of detailed power and dynamic performance adjustments”.

And if you’re scared of wrecking the Vulcan’s beauty, then Aston’s got your back too.

According to the luxury car maker, there will also be the option of time in the virtual race car world of Darren Turner’s Base Performance Simulators, where buyers will have ample opportunity to further refine their driving style in the safety of the digital race track.
