Aston Martin Vulcan Sounds as Insane as it Looks

The Aston Martin Vulcan is a fire-spitting, track-only hypercar and it sounds as insane as it looks.

The British automaker has released a video teasing the Vulcan and focuses on its menacing exhaust note. Powered by a 7.0-liter V12 engine with more than 800 horsepower, it’s no surprise that the Vulcan sounds like music to our ears.

We bet it’s a blast to drive, too, with a lightweight carbon fiber monocoque structure and a track-derived pushrod suspension setup with driver-adjustable dampers. All that is further backed by carbon-ceramic brake rotors and Brembo calipers.

Unfortunately, the Aston Martin Vulcan is limited to just 24 units worldwide, so something tells us this might be the best we will ever get in hearing how great it sounds on the track.

    While the adolescents play with their toys, adults are trying to figure out how to stop catastrophic climate change.

    Anyone who thinks this is interesting IS the problem.

  • Extrog

    Self-righteous prat!

  • eddieo

    Or concerned adult, depending on your level of education and emotional maturity.

  • Extrog

    I think you’re level of pretension might figure into that equation as well, and since I lecture at a university, I’d bet my level of education exceeds yours by a fair few furlongs.

  • eddieo

    Perhaps, but it is 2015, and we should be well beyond our fascination with such toys, and instead focusing our educated minds on solving real problems.

    (oh, and I lecture at a university as well for what it’s worth. Though admittedly, it is not in the sciences)

  • Extrog

    I think your comments are probably more the result of your socialist envy than of any concern for the environment. Why don’t you make up a few placards and go protest in front of the Indian or Chinese embassies? I’m sure they’d love to listen to your point of view. And if you’re so anti-automobile, what are you doing HERE? You should be supporting the horticultural sites.

    Doesn’t matter what reductions in carbon you might achieve. One good volcanic belch has you beat. Or did they not teach you that in college?

  • johnls39 .

    There is nothing wrong with material items like these since a lot of people work hard all their lives and made sacrifices in their life to achieve them. I’m sure you made sacrifices in your college days to lecture at a university so what is your problem? If you have the financial means to do so, so be it. You come off as a hater.

  • eddieo

    I am here because as a Canadian it is one of my responsibilities to speak my mind and try to advance society. What have you done for you planet – or country – lately?

    Have you changed your habits so you live more simply, allowing others to simply live?

    Were you brought up religious?

  • Extrog

    You see that as your responsibility do you? Your argument sounds like that of an 11th grade delegate to the Junior United Nations. I’m in China right now, one of the countries, where the real battle against global warming is being waged. Canada’s carbon input is hardly noticeable when compared to that of China or India. China is a place where, I’ve personally experienced walking through morning air that leaves a heavy taste of sulphur in the mouth and where whole mountains are perpetually shrouded in clouds of filth. So I’ve got news for you, stopping 28 super cars running around a track somewhere in Britain ain’t going to save the glaciers.

  • eddieo

    China’s air quality os so bas in large part BECAUSE they are making cheap crap that “we” buy, therefore their carbon footprint is our carbon footprint. As such Canadians have among the highest footprint per capita in the world.

    The FACT is, if everyone were treated equally – that is to say everyone had the right to the same amount of emissions per year – no one would drive such a monstrosity.

    Each and everyone of us must make an effort. The wealthiest among us more than others as their lifestyle is responsible for most of it.
