Aston Martin Vulcan To Make North American Debut At 2015 New York Auto Show
Unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, the Vulcan is Aston's answer to the Ferrari LaFerrari FXX K and McLaren P1 GTR. Like its rivals, it's not bound by government regulations or racing sanctioning bodies, and is so intense that customers will be treated to a racing-style driver training program to learn how to control it.
Under the hood is a 7.0-liter V-12 that produces more than 800 horsepower. All of that power is routed to the rear wheels through an Xtrac six-speed sequential gearbox and a limited-slip differential. Brakes are by Brembo, with massive (15-inch front, 14.1-inch rear) carbon-ceramic discs.
Just as it did with the limited-edition Aston Martin One-77, Canada's Multimatic will build the monocoque and bodywork for the Vulcan, almost all of which will be carbon fiber. The company also supplies its Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve adjustable dampers. There are also driver-adjustable anti-lock braking and traction-control systems. Source
