A Street-Legal Aston Martin Vulcan Sounds Like the Best Idea

What you see here is an Aston Martin Vulcan. And yeah, it is insanely cool. The track-only Aston Martin has an 800-horsepower V12 and isn’t certified to be anywhere on (or near, really) public roads. Actually, it's even too powerful for GTE racing. But that first part could change if engineers really wanted it to. And they really want it to...if it means they're going to sell even more of them. According to Autovisie, in an interview with Aston Martin product manager Simon Croft, the marque may look to take its track-only hypercar, and turn it a road-going monster at the request of a few customers. V12 and all. Problem is, it’s not as easy as it sounds.

Whereas McLaren and Ferrari both have road-going versions of their track cars, Aston Martin isn’t so fortunate. The Vulcan was designed from the ground up as an absolute, hardcore, built-for-the-track machine. That’s it. Aston Martin will mull over the idea of turning the Vulcan into a road-going vehicle, but for now, the brand is focused on selling all 24 versions of the vehicle at a jaw-dropping cost of $2.2 million each.
