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 has a starting rank of 1220, a MAX rank of 1609 (same as the Ferrari LaFerrari from Class A), and a MAX+PRO rank of 1806, along with a huge Tuning Kit bonus of +62. Being a Class S car, it not only has the lowest starting rank, but also the largest Tuning Kit bonus, superseding the long-time record holder Ferrari Enzo Ferrari. The Aston Martin Vulcan mainly rivals the Devel Sixteen Prototype, Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package, McLaren MP4-31 (on short and twisty tracks), Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, and Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport (the latter three on long tracks).
The Aston Martin Vulcan's acceleration, while inferior to the Lamborghini Egoista, Weber Faster One, and TRION NEMESIS, is still superb for its class. Its top speed is already higher than all of the Aston Martin cars by far and, as expected, the Vulcan handles very well; in fact, the Vulcan could be considered one of the best handling cars in the game, with handling and drifting bearing similarities to the W Motors Fenyr Supersport and Ferrari FXX Evoluzione but not overly sensitive compared to these two cars. The Vulcan's nitro is uniquely efficient with 6/10/14, which would make it very similar to the One-77.
Its overall stats make it a very fast and enjoyable car to drive. Looking at its stats, it is eligible to get Top 100 on every Time Limited Event where it is available if used properly. The one thing to be careful of is its huge speed multiplier of 88.65%, shared with the Arash AF10. At most, the Vulcan can reach 315.0 mph (507.3 km/h) in real speed terms, although the Vulcan more than makes up for this due to having excellent balanced performance; in fact, the speed multiplier appears to be the only real disadvantage the Vulcan has. Despite being slightly slower than the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, which reaches 317.7 mph (511.5 km/h), the Vulcan still wins against the Hommage due to having superior overall stats. It even wins against the Devel Sixteen Prototype and Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport on all tracks except for Tokyo and, in some cases, Azure Coast, though certain Corvette Grand Sport users are capable of posting better lap times than the Vulcan in certain tracks. While the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV is capable of reaching a similar total speed, especially due to the SV having no speed modifier, the Aston Martin Vulcan is still capable of dominating the SV due to the Vulcan's better overall stats (this is especially due to the SV's sub-par steering and drifting capabilities). One thing to note, though, is that the Vulcan also does suffer from the sidewalk bug in Tokyo if the car approaches the sidewalk too quickly, making it more recommended to turn slowly onto the sidewalk if the player needs to collect a nitro pickup found on the sidewalk.
In Venice (except the Reverse version) and Dubai, while having amazing handling, the Vulcan is challenged by the McLaren MP4-31 due to the latter's ability to clear corners easily without being required to drift, although the Vulcan is far more stable and has better overall stats, despite what its speed multiplier dictates.
On the other hand, on medium and long tracks without excessively sharp corners, the Vulcan stands no chance against the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, especially as of the Car Blueprints Update.
Due to the well balanced stats the Vulcan has, the Vulcan sees wide usability in both events and Multiplayer. In terms of events, the Vulcan is dominant on nearly every track as stated above. In Multiplayer, the Vulcan is also commonly seen above the 1700+ border, given that there is not a single non-Elite Car that can get consistent victories over the Vulcan, and the Corvette Grand Sport is one of the only Elite Cars that can sometimes beat the Vulcan on various tracks. All of this ultimately depends on the skills of the drivers, though.
The Aston Martin Vulcan can actually be tuned for low rank Multiplayer matches due to its low starting rank. On the other hand, though, due to the large speed multiplier, a MP 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 will be 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.
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) 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.
