The Aston Martin Vulcan is a track-only hypercar that was revealed earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show. At the time, it was shown in a sort of spearmint green color, but now the British automaker has unveiled it in an atomic orange hue.
Revealed at a private get-together during Monterey Car Week, this machine looks as mean as ever. As before, this car celebrates Aston Martin’s motorsports heritage and brandishes a 7.0-ltier V12 that promise to deliver in excess of 800 horsepower.
Its monocoque structure is made of carbon fiber, as is the Vulcan’s bodywork. Obviously, this provides a strong foundation and incredibly light weight.
Beyond all of this, the engine is mounted amidship and sends torque to the rear wheels through a limited-slip differential. Helping manage that brute force is a track-derived pushrod suspension setup with driver-adjustable dampers. Reining all of this in are carbon-ceramic brake rotors squeezed by Brembo calipers.
Production of the track-only Aston Martin Vulcan was limited to just 24 models. Given its racing pedigree, it conforms to all FIA safety regulations. Of course if you’re a true automotive enthusiast – and a regular AutoGuide.com reader – none of this is really news. However, the Vulcan’s hot new paint job is worth checking out.
