Aston Martin unveils latest $2.78m race car

Aston Martin has revealed the Vulcan, its latest £1.8 million ($2.78 million) race car.

Made entirely of carbon fibre, it runs on a 7.0-litre V12 petrol engine that produces 800 plus horsepower.

The engine, which is placed in a front-mid structure, with a mid-mounted Xtrac six-speed sequential shift gearbox, which sends power to the rear wheels.

“Aston Martin Vulcan is, by its very nature, a rare and thrilling supercar,” said CEO of Aston Martin, Dr Andy Palmer.

“Designed and engineered to deliver a genuinely bespoke driving experience that draws on our rich heritage, this car tailors its power and handling to both the capabilities of the driver and the characteristics of the track,” he explained.

The Vulcan comes with a unique ownership programme that allows its owners to take part in a track driving training course using high performance cars such as the Vantage S and Vantage GT4.

They will be trained by the likes of Darren Turner, who has won the GT1 class of Aston Martin’s 24 Hours Le Mans race in 2008.

The Aston Martin Vulcan is scheduled to debut at the Geneva International Motor Show on March 3.
