Aston had a pretty great showing at Goodwood. Not only did the prestigious British marque use the event to showcase its new lineup of 2016 models, including the new DB9 GT, but it used the event to showcase its latest supercar, the Vulcan. Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show this year, the Aston Martin Vulcan is a carbon-fiber rocket. Powered by a 7.0-liter V12 engine that produces more than 800 horsepower, this track-only machine can blitz the 60 mph barrier in less than three seconds and it will keep building speed until it moves past the 200 mph mark.
This incredible car is the culmination of years of work and research that marries knowledge gained from the exclusive One-77 and the company’s modern racing efforts.
Only 24 models will ever be built, with each one being bespoke to its owners. The cars are being built with varying levels of power and suspension setups based on track choices and owner specifications.
When asked about why Aston Martin wanted to use Goodwood to debut the Vulcan in motion, brand CEO Andy Palmer said they wanted to debut the car on “home soil,” and there are fewer greater British automotive celebrations than Goodwood.
