As if you needed further confirmation of just how truly insane the Aston Martin Vulcan is, a short clip of the British hypercar accelerating has just been released.
While the clip itself doesn’t really show the performance potential of the Vulcan, it does show that it is more than capable of performing an impressive burnout all while sounding let a jet airplane. The car is currently in attendance at this weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015.
Powering the Aston Martin Vulcan is an entirely new engine which holds the accolade as the world’s most powerful naturally aspirated production engine and contrary to previous reports, it is unrelated to the Aston Martin One-77’s 7.3-litre V12. In fact, it has been developed by Aston Martin Racing and is a V12 displacing 7.0-litres and delivering over 800 hp. Certain specifications about the engine remain unclear but it will reportedly help power the Aston Martin Vulcan to a top speed exceeding 320 km/h (200 mph).
The aforementioned 7.0-litre V12 is coupled with an Xtrac six-speed sequential transmission related to the system from the Aston Martin Vantage GTE race car. Drive is then sent through the rear wheels.
