Turns out that it looks even crazier in person.
We know that, what with the unfortunate recent passing of Leonard Nimoy, you've probably hear the word “Vulcan” a lot lately. But let's start out here by saying that Aston Martin's insane new track car has nothing to do with Star Trek, and is rather named after a Cold War-era bomber which was also fairly nuts. The “800 plus” horsepower machine was just unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, and it might strike you as still fairly concept-y looking, but there is a good reason for this.
Only 24 units of the Vulcan are going to be produced, with a price tag of $2.3 million a pop. And since AM will be offering pretty extensive customization options for the cars, the show car is probably either a mock-up or a car which will be getting reworked before going to a buyer. It is a mighty impressive car though, and speculation has already begun on whether the future will bring a roadgoing version, or at least a model based off of this car. The engine is, after all, the most powerful version of the 7.0-liter V12 to date, and facts like that sell cars. We'll have to wait and see, but until then, we love this.
