Supercar enthusiasts may well be familiar with the Aston Martin Vulcan, a magnificent 7.0-litre V12-powered supercar that excites with a staggering 800bhp plus. It shares its name with another superb feat of engineering, the Avro Vulcan, an iconic jet bomber that was piloted by the Royal Air Force between 1956 and 1984.
These two potent machines have been brought together by Aston Martin to shine the spotlight on the Vulcan supercar in a promotional video published on the brand’s YouTube channel. The coming together of these two remarkable vehicles also marks one of the final flights before the Vulcan XH558 aircraft is retired.
Just 136 bombers were made during its time in operation, which is still far more units than the special Aston Martin Vulcan. The luxury British firm plans to cap production of the track car at 24, so spotting one at your local circuit will be a sight to savour. Buyers will have the freedom to make subtle adjustments to the car’s performance set up, to create the driving dynamic that delivers maximum enjoyment.
First deliveries of the Vulcan are expected before the end of 2015. To enquire about your own, please contact Lancaster Cambridge Aston Martin or Lancaster Sevenoaks Aston Martin today.
