At last year’s Geneva auto show, Aston Martin wowed us as only they could, by revealing their behemoth. That is, the track only snarling, fire spitting  blunderbuss of a 7.0 litre V12, found in the Vulcan.
Aston revealed that each and every one of the 24 Vulcans to be made had already been sold before the public release, for an equally terrifying  $2.3 million price tag. Not one for the thrifty spender then and unfortunately none have yet been reported to have emerged in Australia.
However, if you happened to have deep enough pockets, a second chance saloon at Vulcan ownership has arisen with the very first Vulcan to hit the US for sale for a reasonable market adjusted price. That means you could be driving away in a Vulcan for just $3.4m from an Ohio based speedership in the USA.

Arguably one of the rarest supercars in the planet, the Aston’s steep price range is indicative of its supreme exclusivity and what is likely to be a constant trend in its future value. For your 7-figure price tag however, you not only get the monstrous power plant, but a carbon-fibre monocoque chassis for unsurpassed weight saving and rigidity, Race bred, carbon-ceramic Brembo brake setup and race bred comoponentry such as a carbon-fibre driveshaft. All of this glides on a 345/305 wide Michelin racing tyre setup which are kept true and flat by push-rod suspension with a similar dynamic spool valve damper configuration that is found only on the Camaro Z/28 and  one-77.

Whilst I’m glad these beasts will be kept for show and play only (a beast getting too close to a ‘roo will never be pretty!), It’s likely that you’ll be needing the track honed performance to keep a good distance between you and the cops as you race away from the latest heist you pulled off to fund the purchase, but exclusivity has never looked so.. perfect..
