The Aston Martin Vulcan is a high-performance track car developed by Aston Martin.

Limited to 24 units, production of the Vulcan began in 2015 following its reveal at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and has an intent focus on track performance.

It has a carbon fibre body on top of an aluminium chassis which holds the 7.0-litre V12. Fitted with carbon ceramic brakes, a limited slip differential, and a kerb weight of 1,350 kg; the track focus becomes a foremost aspect of the Vulcan.

As only 24 units will be produced, the limited edition Vulcan has a price tag of $2.3 million, but owners will be able to keep their car even though its attendance at track days must be approved by Aston Martin before hand.
