The menacing Aston Martin Vulcan was the star of a recent Ultracar Sports Club track event organized at the Misano circuit in Italy.

 

With the Vulcan, AM has a proper response to the McLaren P1 GTR and LaFerrari XX, but while the two rivals have a hybrid setup, the Vulcan adopts an old-school naturally aspirated engine. It's a massive V12 7.0-liter that sounds glorious when being revved and it's utterly powerful as it churns more than 800 bhp (without any turbo or electric assistance) sent to the road through a six-speed sequential gearbox.

 

Only 24 of these monsters will be built at $2.3 million a pop and all of them are exclusively destined for track use as Aston Martin recently denied rumors concerning a possible road-going version. The company's "most intense and exhilarating creation to date" is certainly a dying breed in a segment where turbos and electric motors are making the rules.

Those very few who bought the car will be able to take part in a comprehensive track training program to help them master the 800+ bhp machine.
