The Aston Martin Vulcan was previously seen earlier this year at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Now, a new video has been released by the brand, this time showcasing what the hypercar sounds like on the track and also how agile it is round corners.

Underneath the two-door hypercar is a naturally-aspirated 7.0 litre V12 engine that sits in the front. In total, it produces over 800 hp of pure power sent to the rear wheels. In addition, the Vulcan is light, weighing less than 1,360 kg, thanks to its carbon-fibre body and aluminium chassis.

Being a petrol-only hypercar, the Vulcan is unique in its class as the Ferrari FXX K and the McLaren P1 GTR both employ hybrid power. In regards to that, the Vulcan will be limited to track-use only.

To recap, the name Vulcan is derived from a British-made 1950’s Avro Vulcan bomber plane, which adds to the ownership experience. Upon purchase, the Vulcan can be customised for track days with “dynamic performance adjustments” and a “graduating scale of detailed power.”

Only 24 units of the Vulcan will be made and it’s priced at over USD$2 million (RM8.3 million) a piece. First deliveries of the Aston Martin Vulcan is set to take place before the end of 2015, some time this month.
