Aston Martin’s Vulcan HyperSupercar Meets The Vulcan Bomber
Aston Martin’s Britishness means the Vulcan name is a reference to the astonishingly loud Cold War bombers.
As the last remaining airworthy Avro Vulcan prepared for its final flight late last year, the iconic 1950’s British V bomber was pared with its modern automotive namesake: the Aston Martin Vulcan.
Vulcan XH558 has retired from active service, going on to form the centrepiece of the educational Vulcan Aviation Academy & Heritage Centre at its home base, Robin Hood Airport near Doncaster, UK.
Ahead of that final flight, the famous Cold War-era long-range bomber was paired with the Aston Martin Vulcan, the new track-only HyperSupercar, via a special flypast at Elvington Airfield in Yorkshire.
Benefiting fully from the Aston Martin’s design flair and engineering ingenuity, the 800bhp, completely carbon fibre Vulcan delivers extreme performance.
Following Ferrari’s lead this new Aston Martin HyperSupercar allows its 24 privileged owners the opportunity to precisely tailor their track-day experience through a graduating scale of detailed power and dynamic performance adjustments.
Color and trim options arefully negotiable, with Aston’s bespoke “Q” division charged with making sure each customer gets exactly what they want.
Owners will get the chance to have a range of options to help them get the best out of the car, up to and including time in Aston’s GT racers and professional motorsports simulators.
Also, the company is planning a series of exclusive track-day events that will offer the opportunity for these customers to explore their driving capabilities, and the car’s performance potential, on some of the world’s top race circuits.
Pretty much the same opportunities offered to buyers of the Ferrari FXX K and the McLaren P1 GTR.
The Vulcan is set to be the most extreme not-roadgoing Aston Martin aimed at the same Tier 1 market as the Ferrari FXX K and the McLaren P1 GTR.
The price of the Vulcan is in the neighborhood of $2.3-M.
