Aston Martin Vulcan Flexes Its Muscles In New Zealand: Video
Enjoy this video as much as you canby Kirby, on
Just days after Aston Martin chief Andy Palmer announced that a conversion kit for the Aston Martin Vulcan is already in the works, the track-only supercar is back in the headlines for an entirely different reason.This time, one of the 24 Vulcans in existence was spotted in New Zealand taking in a few laps around the country’s new Highlands Motorsport Park. From the looks of things, the Vulcan’s arrival in the land of kiwis was partly done for promotional reasons to showcase one the performance capabilities of one of the world’s most exclusive high-performance cars.
The video seems to point to that as it was done professionally. But it’s also possible that one of the 24 owners of the Vulcan resides in that country and just as he was receiving the track-spec machine, Aston Martin thought it would be a good idea to create a video of the car strutting its stuff in the new race track. I don’t particularly know the details behind this, but what I do know is that seeing the Vulcan in a track is the kind of thing I’d like to watch just before starting my weekend.
If you haven’t seen this video yet, do so at your soonest convenience – seriously. We already know that the Vulcan is powered by a 7.0-liter naturally aspirated V-12 engine that produces an incredible 820 horsepower. But have any of you seen the car put that engine and all its power to use? Seeing as how rare the car is, I don’t think we’re going to get more chances to watch the car and hear the unmistakable roar of that massive V-12 engine. Enjoy this opportunity because it’ll probably be as fleeting as seeing the car blast along the Highlands Motorsport Park.
