Aston Martin has released a new video which shows their Vulcan meeting the Avro Vulcan bomber that it was named after.

Set to retire later this month, the last remaining airworthy Avro Vulcan made a special flyover of the model at the Elvington Airfield in Yorkshire.  The flight was piloted by Martin Withers DFC who remarked “Being at the controls for this unique fly-past was a memorable occasion. Personally, it is great to know that the Vulcan name will live on not only in the history books, and at the new educational centre in Yorkshire, but via Aston Martin’s incredible new sports car.”

His sentiments were echoed by Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer who said “Clearly the Avro Vulcan provided the inspiration for the naming of our most extreme sports car, and I’m delighted that we have been able to unite the ‘two Vulcans’ and deliver our own tribute to this world-renowned aeronautical phenomenon.”
