Live long and prosper

ONLY LOGICAL: The track-configured Vulcan costs in excess of €2 million.

THE Aston Martin Vulcan is one of the most fiendish vehicles roaming the world today, a product of the British company allowing its imagination to run riot with a stunning ode to the hypercar. 

The only trouble is that the Vulcan is absurdly ill-suited for street use, and is more at home alongside the Ferrari FXX K than tearing down the M8 or AP7 motorways.

Luckily Aston Martin has now developed a programme whereby lucky owners can reconfigure their Vulcans to make them road legal by tweaking the necessary safety and handling issues. 

Naturally the cost will be astronomical considering a track designed Vulcan costs upwards of €2 million, and it could take three months for the engineers to work their magic to have it road ready. 

Released in 2015, the Vulcan marked a serious statement of intent from Aston Martin’s new management team, exclusively designed in-house by Sheffield born creative officer Marek Reichmann. 

It features a naturally aspirated 7.0 litre V12 engine that can produce 800 bhp. The chassis and body are light-weight carbon-fibre, while the design is a futuristic marvel pushing aerodynamic expression to the limits. 

It also features a magnesium torque tube with a carbon-fibre propeller shaft, a limited-slip differential, and carbon ceramic brakes. 

The Vulcan weighs in at 1,350kg and can hit a top speed of 360 km/h.
