Aston Martin will only be making 24 units of its now $2.3 million Vulcan supercar, a track-only, all-carbon fiber vehicle powered by a new 820-horsepower, 7-liter V-12 engine.
The Aston Martin Vulcan's exhaust is made from titanium and Inconel, for maximum rear downforce, with the vehicle packing a 600E gear box that can push the supercar to speeds of over 200 miles per hour.
Drooling yet? How about after learning that the first batch of the supercar's buyers were taken to Abu Dhabi for professional race training?
With the Aston Martin Vulcan not legal to be driven on streets, the buyers of the supercar are required to have knowledge of race track driving in a variety of conditions, which is what the training they're receiving is focusing on.
The location of the training is nowhere else but on Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina F1 circuit, with elite professional racing drivers, including Aston Martin's Darren Turner, serving as the instructors.
The Aston Martin Vulcan buyers were given one-on-one training, with the instructors sitting on the passenger side as they raced through laps on the race track in both day and night to subject the drivers to various conditions.
"The guys here this week have all been in the car as my passenger at recent events, but this was the first time they got to see and drive their very own Aston Martin Vulcan," said Turner about the sessions, which are a part of a two-year driver experience program.
"The priority of all of us on the team was to produce a car that provides immense enjoyment for the customers. Judging by the reactions we have seen this week, that goal has been achieved and surpassed," Turner added. It seems then that the customers are enjoying their mean machines.
The Aston Martin Vulcan is pegged to compete with Ferrari's FXX K and McLaren's P1 GTR as luxurious track-only supercars, as these other car companies also offer their buyers with similar programs to introduce elite cars to their customers. The treatment is understandable, though, specially with the buyers dropping that much cash to purchase these supercars.
