Start saving your pennies for August.
The Aston Martin Vulcan is the pinnacle of track-only performance and technology from Gaydon, taking every bit of their motorsports knowledge and transferring it into an unrestricted platform. Only 24 examples were produced for customers with a price tag of $2.3 million, and they can only be legally driven on the racetrack.
After each one was quickly scooped up by customers, one of them is heading to auction at the Mecum Monterey 2016 event. While it’s strictly designed for the racetrack, one British company can convert the exotic so that it can be legally driven on public roads. The only problem that just one is for sale in Cleveland, OH with a hefty $3.4 million price tag.
This is your other chance to possibly save a bit of coin and get a super-rare, hardcore racer. The 2016 Mecum Monterey auction will see serial number AMLVULCANXXXXXX11 – the 11th out of 24 total Aston Martin Vulcans produced – roll across the block.
Everything about the Aston Martin Vulcan is designed for incredible on-track performance from the inside-out. It’s 7.0-liter, naturally-aspirated V-12 engine is based on the ones born on the racetrack and spits out 820 horsepower. Blue flames explode as they exit the side-mounted Iconel and titanium exhaust pipes. Three power outputs are available to drivers through the Cosworth ECU and handled by an Xtrac six-speed sequential gearbox and Sachs competition clutch.
A four-way adjustable pushrod suspension, sticky tires, and aerodynamics that are designed to generate loads of downforce and keep the Vulcan planted firmly to the asphalt as it slices and dices the track. Even the cockpit is tailored for racing with FIA-approved safety measures and roll cage around the Recaro seats and bespoke carbon fiber steering wheel.
Opportunities to buy a 2016 Aston Martin Vulcan will be few and far between, and the No.11 model is expected bring in between $2.3- and $3.3 million. So, you better start saving those pennies before August 18th comes around!
