Aston Martin Vulcan product manager Simon Croft caused a bit of a frenzy when he suggested the company was considering a street-legal version of the high-performance supercar but it appears it was all for naught.

When asked about the possibility of a street-legal Vulcan, an Aston Martin employee told Road & Track "While there has been some understandable interest in a road-legal version of the Vulcan, we have no plans for one and all our efforts now are making it the ultimate Aston track supercar."

That's not the answer fans were looking for but the Vulcan should be just fine as it's hard to argue with a naturally-aspirated 7.0-liter V12 engine that develops more than 800 bhp (596 kW) that enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 200 mph (321.8 km/h).
