At the Aston Martin company’s outlet in Cleveland a red Aston Martin Vulcan was displayed for a couple of days. It was the first Vulcan that arrived in the United States and it costs $2.3 million.
The Vulcan is Aston Martin’s track-legal hypercar set to compete with the Ferrari FXX K and the McLaren P1 GTR. Its production is limited to 24 units and all of them have already been sold out. It was first showcased at the Geneva Motor Show 2015.
Powering the Vulcan is a 7.0-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine that is capable of producing in excess of 800 hp (600 kW). A six-speed sequential gearbox transfers the power to the rear wheels of the car. The Vulcan weighs just 1350 kg.
Vulcan owners will be part of a comprehensive three-year owners’ program that will allow them to drive the hypercar at tracks like Paul Ricard (France), Silverstone (UK), Spa (Belgium) and Yas Marina (Abu Dhabi).
