Motorsport inspiration Edit
The Vulcan is styled entirely in-house by the Aston Martin creative officer Marek Reichman, the Vulcan features a new design language that should be found in the next generation of Aston Martin sports cars.
The Vulcan is powered by Aston's most potent iteration yet of the company’s naturally-aspirated 7.0-litre V12 engine. With its 800-plus hp engine developed partly with Aston Martin Racing, this front mid-engined, rear-wheel drive supercar draws extensively on the brand’s rich GT motorsport experience
It utilizes techniques of motorsport engineering with the Vulcan seeing its power-to-weight ratio exceed those of the FIA GTE cars which compete in the World Endurance Championship.
With engineering sourced from the brand's successful GT racing campaign, the car features a carbon fibre monocoque and body constructed by Aston Martin’s long-term specialist body engineering and manufacturing partner Multimatic, integral limited-slip differential, magnesium torque tube with carbon fibre propeller shaft and Brembo racing calipers acting on carbon ceramic racing disc brakes which measure 380mm in diameter at the front and 360 mm at the rear.
Drive is channeled to the 345/30x19 rear wheels and Michelin race specification tyres through a race-bred rear mid-mounted Xtrac six-speed sequential shift gearbox. Front tires are 305/30x19.
The car has race-derived pushrod suspension with anti-dive geometry is complemented by Multimatic’s Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars front and rear, driver-adjustable anti-lock braking, and variable traction control.
The Vulcan will comply with all relevant FIA race safety requirements.
