It’s a little more than a one-off Aston, but you’re not going to wait around to get your hands on this one

Just in case Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer’s proclamation that one-off Aston Martins start at $3 million isn’t expensive enough for some of you, might I suggest this fresh alternative. It’s one of only 24 Aston Martin Vulcans - chassis number 14, to be exact - in existence, and it can be yours for a bargain price of £2.7 million. If you’re wondering, that’s around $3.6 million based on current exchange rates.

It’s a staggering price, but with that amount, you get one of the most remarkable track-day missiles you’ll ever get to see. It’s even dressed up in a stunning Special Verde Ithaca green paint finish, a pearlescent shade that’s as mesmerizing to look at in photos as it probably is in person. If that isn’t enough to soothe your vanity, consider what the Vulcan is capable of when you unleash it on a track. Mind you, that’s a 7.0-liter, V-12 engine that spits out a beastly 800 horsepower. It’s not quite on the level of the Valkyrie hypercar, but with the ability to hit 60 mph from a standstill position in less than three seconds and a top speed that’s comfortably north of 200 mph, are we really splitting hairs just because it only has 800 ponies to play with? Having said all of that, here’s the real kicker about this pristine Vulcan: it has less than 200 miles on it. I guess the usage is a matter of perspective, but traditionally speaking, this Vulcan is as good as new, hence the the reason why it costs so much.

The Aston Martin Vulcan is a bad boy

The Vulcan doesn’t approach the Valkyrie’s level of power, speed, and sophistication

With all the hype generated by the Aston Martin Valkyrie, it’s easy to overlook the Vulcan and not think too much of it. That, of course, would be a mistake.

Sure, the Vulcan doesn’t approach the Valkyrie’s level of power, speed, and sophistication. What car does though? Remember, the Valkyrie was developed in close collaboration with Red Bull Racing, so it’s basically dripping with Formula One-type technology. Only a handful of production cars in the world can boast of having similar tech as the Valk, so it’s no shame for a car like the Vulcan to be slotted just below it in Aston Martin’s halo car pecking order.

The thing about the Vulcan is that it is its own halo car. Its design alone is fitting of such a label. Ever seen an Aston Martin look like this? Nope. Ever seen an Aston Martin sport a rear wing that can have its own zip code? Not in this lifetime, at least. Best of all, ever seen a car pack this much technology and still concede the halo car status to another model? That’s the unique position the Vulcan finds itself in, but even in its position, you can rest assured that it’s worth every bit of that $3.6 million that Kaaimans International is asking for it.

It’s actually not the first Aston Martin Vulcan to hit the “for sale” block

For a car that has such a limited run, you would think that the Aston Martin Vulcan would be one of those models that rarely ends up for sale. You’d be wrong, though, because there have been some examples of the Vulcan that have hit the second-hand market, one of which is still up for sale on the DupontRegistry website.

This model is all dressed up in a Fiamma Red body finish and features all of the dramatic styling cues, interior creature comforts, and state-of-the-art components that we all saw on the Vulcan when it made its debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It also carries the stock number “AMLXX007” and the VIN number “AMLVULCANXXXXXX07,” likely making it model number 7 of the 24 units in existence today. It has no miles on it, though, that doesn’t seem likely, and it’s being sold for $3.4 million.

I don’t fancy the thought of having to choose between these two models of the Aston Martin Vulcan though if I were forced to do so, I might go with the one Kaimaans is offering. I know $3.6 million is a steep price to pay for a Special Verde Ithaca green paint finish, but I’m dealing with nothing more than my imagination here. My imagination would pony up that extra $200,000 to get that look on the Vulcan.
