Top Gear Finds The Vulcan To Be A Naturally-Aspirated Brute

Video

In the best way possible.

In a world of electrification and hybridization, the Aston Martin Vulcan is a breath of fresh air. At a time when McLaren and Ferrari are turning towards a hybrid powertrain for its track-only monsters, Aston Martin comes out with a supercar that’s looks just as crazy, but features a naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V12 engine. It’s safe to say that the Vulcan is a love letter to the naturally aspirated monsters of yesteryear. Top Gear magazine managed to get some time behind the wheel of the beast and found it to be a handful.

The Vulcan doesn’t necessarily sound like an Aston Martin, drive like one, or look like one, but that’s a good thing. If you’re not in love with the Vulcan now, you will be shortly.
