Aston Martin Vulcan debuts at Goodwood
The Aston Martin Vulcan was unveiled at Geneva earlier this year and made its debut at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Powered by a 7.0-litre V12 huffing out a massive 800 hp, the Vulcan is said to hit the 100 kph mark in about 3 seconds and max out at 320 kph. And complementing the power underneath the hood is a 6-speed sequential transmission. Also the car is built on a carbon-fibre monocoque chassis.
Aston Martin say that the Vulcan will be dedicated to the track. The car features driver-adjustable ABS, limited-slip differential and a magnesium torque tube with a carbon-fibre propeller shaft. You’ll also get carbon ceramic brakes, anti-roll bars and a variable traction control system.
The Vulcan will be built only in limited numbers, 24 to be exact, and is expected to cost more than AED 8 million. We should see a few make their way to the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other GCC countries.
