Aston Martin says they are investigating a road-legal conversion of the track-only Vulcan.

Speaking to Autovisie, Aston Martin Vulcan's product manager Simon Croft said customers have already expressed their desire to buy a Vulcan with road-legal status. AM is now analyzing the prospects of making this happen, but they admit it's a difficult task to convert the 800+ bhp track beast into a more docile car legally allowed to be driven on public roads.

While rivals Ferrari and McLaren initially came out with the regular cars and then unleashed their track-ready equivalents, it seems Aston Martin is doing it the other way around and hopefully they will be able to transform the Vulcan into a supercar to tackle the LaFerrari and P1.

If the project will eventually be approved, expect the road-going Vulcan to be significantly more affordable than the track weapon which costs £1.8 million (about $2.8 million / €2.5 million) and is limited to only 24 examples.
