So many millions.
We don’t usually get super excited for supercar auctions but it’s not every day that the car being auctioned off is as rare or powerful as the Aston Martin Vulcan. The Vulcan pictured here is number 11 of 24 and it’s set to go under the hammer at a Mecum auction this summer in Monterey, California. At launch the track-only supercar had a price tag of $2.3 million. All 24 sold out and we’ve seen very few for sale since. Last year Cleveland Motorsports had one listed for a whopping $3.4 million.
We expect this Vulcan to go for much more than that. Why? Think about it: Opportunities to purchase a Vulcan are few and far between. Also, the nature of an auction—rich people trying to buy both a car and bragging rights—is bound to drive the price up. Oh, and then there’s the fact that the Vulcan is a beast. The track-only supercar has a 7.0-liter V12 engine sending 800 horsepower to the rear wheels. It’s able to seriously challenge Koenigsegg lap records, which isn’t something that can be said for many cars. It also looks stunning. Really, the only thing wrong with the Vulcan is that it’s not street-legal. We doubt that little detail will deter rich gearheads from taking their shot at owning the Vulcan come August.
