The Aston Martin Vulcan is a track-only hypercar that acts as Aston Martin's entry into the hypercar market, based on the Aston Martin One-77.
The Vulcan is a track-only hypercar launched in 2015 by Aston Martin at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It is a rear-wheel drive, track-only hypercar that runs on a new 7.0L (6,949 cc) naturally aspirated V12 engine mounted on an aluminium alloy chassis and carbon fibre body delivering 820 hp (611 kW) and 553 ft·lb (750 N·m) of torque. The Vulcan is fitted with carbon ceramic brakes, magnesium torque tube with a carbon fibre propeller shaft, limited-slip differential, Xtrac 6-speed sequential gearbox and has a kerb weight of 2998 lb (1360 kg). The Vulcan is designed by Aston Martin's creative officer Marek Reichman, taking inspirations from Aston Martin current models Vantage and DB9. The Vulcan is a limited edition vehicle, with only 24 cars, each priced at $2.3 million.
The Vulcan is capable of 0-60 mph in 3 seconds and a top speed of at least 192 mph (309 km/h).
The Vulcan's name is a reference to the Cold War-era British bombers of the same name.
The Aston Martin Vulcan was added in the Championship Update and is the second Aston Martin car added to the game via an update, after the Aston Martin One-77.
The Aston Martin Vulcan isn't the fastest car in the game, but it is still considered to be the best car in the game and in Class S due to its excellent performance in all areas.
The Vulcan's acceleration is superior to most high-end cars in Class S, except for the McLaren MP4-31 and TRION NEMESIS. The Vulcan's top speed is the fifth highest in the game and the second-highest in Class S. The Vulcan is the fastest car in the game with good acceleration, drifting and handling. The Vulcan's nitro efficiency is superb, rated at 6/10/14.
However, the Vulcan's balanced performance isn't enough to allow it to outrun its few faster rivals on long maps, such as Tokyo. The Devel Sixteen Prototype, BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, and Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition can rival it in these situations.
The Vulcan performs only slightly better than cars like the Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package, Lamborghini Aventador SV, Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid, and Arrinera Hussarya GT. These cars can outrun the Vulcan if the Vulcan doesn't run a perfect lap.
Due to the Aston Martin Vulcan's well-balanced stats, it is dominant in most time-limited events where it can be used, and it sees wide usability in Multiplayer, usually in races involving vehicles with ranks above 1700, given that there is not a single non-Elite Car that can get consistent victories over the Vulcan; the Corvette Grand Sport is one of the only Elite Cars that can sometimes beat the Vulcan on various tracks, although this also depends largely on the driver's skills.
The Aston Martin Vulcan can actually be tuned for low-rank Multiplayer matches due to its low starting rank. On the other hand, a Multiplayer-tuned Vulcan below 1400 is mostly inferior to other low-rank Multiplayer favorites like the Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic, McLaren MP4/8, and TVR Sagaris. Because of this, the player is generally better off tuning the Vulcan to 1562 or higher, and if possible, getting it MAX+PRO, at which the Vulcan will show off its full potential.
The following are some of the better non-MaxPro multiplayer tunes for the Vulcan:
Max 0500 Pro 5050 = rank 1562 = 477 km/h (296 mph)
Max 0502 Pro 5050 = rank 1586 = 482 km/h (300 mph)
Max 5501 Pro 5555 = rank 1660 = 491 km/h (305 mph)
Max 2504 Pro 5054 = rank 1657 = 495 km/h (307.6 mph)
Max 3504 Pro 5055 = rank 1669 = 496.6 km/h (308.6 mph) This is one of the most balanced tunings, with generally good matchmaking.
Max 5505 Pro 5555 = rank 1747 = 507.3 km/h (315.0 mph)
The Aston Martin Vulcan is the fourth car to be released as a Multiplayer League reward, after the TVR Sagaris, McLaren 570S, and Chevrolet Corvette C3. It was part of the fourth Multiplayer Season (Winter Wonder Season, started on the 12th of January 2017). The purchase price is 14,250. The car was released on February 10, 2017 for everyone, a day before its owners-only event was held. Between August 11-13, 2017, the Vulcan went on sale for 20% off at a price of 11,400.
From February 10, 2017 onwards, the Aston Martin Vulcan was made available in the Garage.
