Just some risky behavior in a car worth $2.5 million. No big deal.
The Aston Martin Vulcan is such a rare bird that any sighting of it, no matter how brief, is a gift that must be enjoyed to the fullest extent. The sheer rarity, cost, looks, drama, and impressive specs sheet make the Vulcan check off every box in the enthusiast’s wish list, but even that’s not enough for some people. The same goes for Aston Martin In the eyes of the automaker/artist, no car is rare enough to get a special edition, or so we presume after it revealed the Vulcan AMR Pro.
The name of the package, an abbreviation for Aston Martin Racing, makes the option sound completely arbitrary for a car like the Vulcan, akin to giving a Formula 1 car a Sports package. With a 7.0-liter V12 making 820 friggin horsepower, isn’t the Vulcan already enough?
Well, for all the fans of Michael Bay movies that think a few more explosions would make them better, this car is for you. A kind soul was good enough to film its official unveiling at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed, and not only are we rewarded with its strikingly good looks, the test driver decides the good folks at Goodwood deserve to see a burnout too. Spare no sympathy for those tires because at the very least, they’re the closest components to the vicious V12 exhaust note. If this car seems particularly appealing to you, be prepared to lay down a literal fortune because the Vulcan alone costs $2.3 million before adding almost $197,000 to cover the AMR Pro package.
