Watch How The Aston Martin Vulcan Is Being Built: Video
This is what you get with your $3.4 millionby Kirby Garlitos, on
Remember when I wrote about an Aston Martin Vulcan that’s currently up for sale for $3.4 million? Well, I don’t know if it’s a simple coincidence or a sign that I should buy the car, but less than a day after that Vulcan hit the news, out comes a video from Carfection that tackles the build process of the most powerful Aston Martin ever created.
Ok, I’m not really going the buy the car under any circumstances considering that I don’t have $3.4 million. But, it is funny to think about the timing of these two separate media items covering the same 800-horsepower track-day supercar. The video itself is pretty informative, and if my hearing serves me right, I think that’s XCar’s Alex Goy doing the voice-over in the video. In it, Goy talks about the nitty gritty details on the construction and development of the Vulcan, right down to the generous amount of lightweight carbon fiber used on the car and the incredible downforce it generates, thanks in large part to the rather massive aerodynamic components fitted into the track car.
It’s safe to say that the Aston Martin Vulcan is a clear departure from the company’s luxury meets performance reputation. I say that because the Vulcan is just a purely bred annihilator on the race track, the kind of car that can gleefully let other cars pass by and then catch up to them without even breaking so much as a sweat. And, as good as it looks - I mean, look at that piece of beauty! - the Vulcan is also largely defined by its thunderous 7.0-liter V-12 engine that pumps out in excess of 800 horsepower. It’s rather interesting that Aston Martin hasn’t released the full performance details of the Vulcan, but just hearing the spine-tingling roar of that V-12 engine at the end of the video is all we need to know about the track car’s breathtaking capabilities on any racing circuit it finds itself in.
If you just happen to be inspired enough by this video that you’re itching to own one, you can check out that Vulcan that’s currently up for sale over at Cleveland Motorsports. You’re going to need $3.4 million to own it, but who knows, if you can string up and save your money for God-knows-how-long, you could find out first-hand exactly why the Aston Martin Vulcan is everything it’s been hyped up to be.
