Gaydon’s answer to the Ferrari FXX K and McLaren P1 GTR

There’s been a lot of talk in recent years about Aston Martin’s financial troubles and whether or not the brand will manage to survive on its own. Reports suggested at some point that the Brits might receive financial backing from various companies., but while that scenario didn’t come to fruition, Aston Martin buckled up and launched an all-new vehicle nevertheless. Dubbed Vulcan and described as "something very special," Aston Martin’s new project turned out to be a track-focused supercar in the vein of the Ferrari FXX K and the McLaren P1 GTR. At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Brits unleashed the Vulcan for the whole world to see, and, as it turns out, Gaydon’s new baby is as special as it gets.

Skeptics that expected to see a beefed up, race-spec Vantage were in for quite a surprise, as the Vulcan was brand-new not only in design, but under the hood as well. What’s more, it arrived with its own racing program and the kind of exclusivity only Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren were able to deliver until then. There’s a lot of PR talk coming with all-new vehicles nowadays, but Aston Martin nailed it when it described the Vulcan as the "brand’s most intense and exhilarating creation to date." Keep reading to find out why.
