Press Release:


  • Geneva global reveal for limited edition, track-only, 7.0-litre V12 supercar
  • Motorsport-developed technology for extreme on-track performance
  • Expert tuition, technical support and experience programme for owners

25 February 2015, Gaydon: Introducing the Aston Martin Vulcan – a track-only supercar and the British luxury brand’s most intense and exhilarating creation to date.

Born out of extensive motorsport experience – and using the brand’s acknowledged flair for design and engineering ingenuity – the 800-plus bhp, all-carbon fibre Aston Martin Vulcan promises truly extreme performance.

Uniquely for Aston Martin, the new supercar – limited to just 24 examples worldwide – will allow owners the opportunity to precisely tailor their track day experience through a graduating scale of detailed power and dynamic performance adjustments.

CEO, Dr Andy Palmer, said: “Aston Martin Vulcan is, by its very nature, a rare and thrilling supercar. Designed and engineered to deliver a genuinely bespoke driving experience that draws on our rich heritage, this car tailors its power and handling to both the capabilities of the driver and the characteristics of the track.

“A sports car for true sports car lovers, I believe the Aston Martin Vulcan – and the unique ownership programme that sits behind it – sets a whole new standard in the ultra-high luxury supercar class.”


Styled entirely in-house by the Aston Martin design team led by Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, and with a design language hinting at the next generation of Aston Martin sports cars, this supercar is powered by the most potent iteration yet of the company’s naturally-aspirated, 7.0-litre V12 petrol engine.

With its 800-plus bhp powerplant developed in conjunction with Aston Martin Racing, this front mid-engined, rear-wheel drive sports car draws extensively on the brand’s rich GT motorsport experience.

Utilising the techniques of world-class motorsport engineering, the supercar sees its power-to-weight ratio exceed those of the GTE cars which compete in the FIA’s annual World Endurance Championship.

Comprising cutting edge engineering including that sourced from the brand’s successful GT racing campaign, the car features a carbon fibre monocoque and body constructed by Aston Martin’s long-term specialist body engineering and manufacturing partner Multimatic, integral limited-slip differential, magnesium torque tube with carbon fibre propeller shaft and Brembo racing calipers acting on carbon ceramic racing disc brakes which measure 380mm in diameter at the front and 360mm at the rear.

Drive is channelled to the 345/30 x19 rear wheels and Michelin race specification tyres through a race-bred rear mid-mounted Xtrac six-speed sequential shift gearbox.

Track-derived pushrod suspension with anti-dive geometry is complemented by Multimatic’s Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars front and rear, driver-adjustable anti-lock braking, and variable traction control.

The new track car will comply with all relevant FIA race safety requirements.

Aston Martin’s Director of Special Projects and Motorsport, David King, said: “Taking the extensive learning from our various successful racing programmes and applying it to this exceptional track car for customers has been an exciting and sometimes challenging task for the team here at Gaydon.

“Our deep and broad motorsport experience, allied to our renowned road car expertise, has allowed us to make the Aston Martin Vulcan the absolutely compelling proposition it is today.”

Fast-track training

Prior to taking delivery of their cars, owners will be offered the opportunity to take part in an extensive and detailed programme of intensive track driver training.

Experienced racers including Aston Martin Racing’s Le Mans-winning Darren Turner will support owners on their learning journey, offering them the chance to refine their track driving technique and increase their ability through a carefully-constructed series of practical and theoretical driver training events.

Using a number of exciting high performance Aston Martins including the V12 Vantage S and One-77 road cars and the Vantage GT4 race car, customers will gradually build experience and develop their track technique, before beginning their thrilling personal journeys into the immense performance potential of their Aston Martin Vulcan.

David King said: “We will be running a series of exclusive track day events commencing in 2016 that will offer the opportunity for these customers to explore their driving capabilities, and the car’s performance potential, on some of the world’s most famous and glamorous race circuits.”

There will also be the option of time in the virtual race car world of Darren Turner’s Base Performance Simulators, where buyers will have ample opportunity to further refine their driving style in the safety of the digital race track.

No longer the exclusive preserve of Formula 1, it is widely acknowledged that using a simulator can help prepare a driver for any race; improving technique and consistency as well as, ultimately, lap times.

Almost infinitely flexible in terms of colour and trim options, the exclusive new sports car will be offered to buyers through Aston Martin’s VIP sales programme, using the expertise and luxury customer service that is now a hallmark of the brand’s ‘Q by Aston Martin’ bespoke personalisation service.

Dr Palmer added: “We have already received strong interest from the customers we have spoken to about Aston Martin Vulcan.

“The cars will blend our traditional Aston Martin values of Power, Beauty and Soul with an unrivalled ownership experience; a unique combination that will guarantee their place in the brand’s rich and charismatic history.”

Performance data, together with further technical details about the ultra-exclusive track-only supercar, will be released closer to its track debut later this year.

The Aston Martin Vulcan will make its world debut on the brand’s new stand at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show (Hall 5 Stand 5253) at 10.15am on Tuesday March 3.

Sorpresa per Ginevra! :D

A quanto pare una Hyper Car da pista in stile P1 GTR.

Sono estremamente curioso e felice!

Si parla di una produzione di sole 30 unità, che non verranno consegnate direttamente al cliente, ma verranno custodite da Aston ed utilizzate solo in determinati eventi appositi.

E il nome è ispirato proprio da lui :)

Non si parlava di una specie di preserie basata sulle tecnologie congiunte di AM e AMG? Con tanto di esercizio di stile per le nuove?

Magari ricordo male....

      Per festeggiare il centenario della Zagato, ricorrenza che cade quest’anno, in casa Aston Martin propongono uno sfizioso pacchetto di due vetture, vendute in coppia a 8,5 milioni di €: la prima è la DB4 GT Zagato Continuation Series e la seconda è la DBS GT Zagato, interpretazione del designer della nuova DBS Superleggera. La prima verrà consegnata nel corso di quest’anno, mentre la DBS nel corso del 2020, entrambe in eventi dedicati. Ovviamente il tutto sarà disponibile per pochissimi clienti, in quanto saranno solo 19 le auto disponibili (DBS).
      Foto della nuova Zagato non ce ne sono, se non qualche teaser.

      Imho, fantastica  Ho trovato sempre pacchiana e di cattivo gusto l'abarth classica, ma questa qui tra hard top in fibra di carbonio vera e cerchi è la morte sua

      Mercedes-Benz presenta il rinnovato GLC che arriverà sul mercato a metà del 2019. Al momento sarà disponibile solo con unità 4 cilindri (sia benzina, sia diesel) mentre più avanti sarà disponibile con motori 6 cilindri e V8, tra cui la GLC 400d 4Matic. Inoltre, nei motori a benzina abbiamo l'utilizzo di un sistema moto-generatore che sostituisce il motorino d'avviamento e l'alternatore, alimentando una linea dedicata a 48V. 
      Debutta ufficialmente l'interfaccia MBUX con comandi touch e vocali.
      Nel campo della sicurezza passiva, arriva una revisione del sistema Distronic (Cruise control Adattivo) che, oltre a garantire ausilio nel traffico e nei lunghi percorsi autostradali, aiuta il conducente nella percorrenza in curva e - in caso di pericolo - interviene assieme all'Active Brake Assist per rallentare (o arrestare completamente) il veicoli in caso di necessità.
      Esteticamente troviamo un frontale rinnovato, con la tecnologia LED per le luci anteriori, oltre alla nuova griglia anteriore a doppia lama. Al posteriore, le nuove ottiche hanno un design rinnovato ed utilizzano la tecnologia LED per esser meglio visibili.
      Abbiamo la possibilità di caratterizzare la GLC con il pacchetto AMG Line, che enfatizza i contenuti sportivi della vettura mediante l'utilizzo di cerchi dal design specifico (con pneumatici misti da 19 e 20 " ), una nuova griglia "Panamericana" all'anteriore e minigonne specifiche per la vettura. Ovviamente diversi i paraurti anteriore e posteriore, con quest'ultimi che integrano i terminali di scarico a doppia uscita. 
      La gamma motori parte inizialmente con i 4 cilindri 2.0 litri benzina (M264) e diesel da 2.0 litri (OM654), con i benzina che sono disponibili esclusivamente in declinazione ibrida.
      GLC 200 da 145 + 10 kW / 197 + 13.6 CV e GLC 300 da 190 + 10 kW / 258 + 13.6 CV ; entrambi abbinati alla trasmissione automatica 9G-Tronic ed alla trazione integrale 4Matic.
      Il plus di potenza e di coppia (+150 Nm) è disponibile da 2500 rpm. 
      Per i modelli diesel abbiamo il 2.0 litri della GLC 200d (120 kW / 163 CV) per salire alla GLC 220d (143 kW / 194 CV) ed arrivare alla declinazione biturbo della GLC 300d (180 kW / 245 CV).
      In futuro saranno disponibili la GLC 400d che sarà spinta dal 6 cilindri OM656 da 2.9 litri da 330 CV. Sul fronte benzina, ci sarà il 6 cilindri 3000 benzina + EQ Boost da 390 CV della GLC 43 AMG a cui seguirà il V8 4.0 litri TwinTurbo della GLC 63 AMG 4Matic.
      In aggiunta, i modelli Ibridi-Plug-In di GLC 300e e GLC 300de con una autonomia esclusivamente elettrica di 50 km, arriveranno a fine 2019 e inizio 2020.
