The Aston Martin Vulcan is one of the most radical cars on the planet. As with the Ferrari FXX K, the Vulcan is a private customer project that Aston Martin were able to design and build free of the rules and regulations of any race series. The results are as vicious and fantastic as you would imagine. Here we have a gallery of images of car number 16 of just 25 produced. It is special as it is the only chrome finished Vulcan ever to have left the Gaydon factory. The chrome is contrasted by a spattering of red accents that make this car stand out even more.
For those that need some reminding of the Aston Martin Vulcan’s pedigree, it was announced at the Geneva Motor Show 2015 as a technically superior, track-only model for Aston Martin’s wealthiest owners. It features a rear-wheel drive setup with a new Aston Martin 7 litre V12 engine, an aluminium alloy chassis and carbon fibre body work.
The engine delivers around 800 hp and comes fitted with a magnesium torque tube, a carbon fibre propeller shaft, limited-slip differential, Xtrac 6-speed sequential gearbox and a kerb weight of just 1,350 kg (2,980 lb). This is a racecar in every sense of the word!
