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.

Description

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.

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Summary

A8A Aston Martin Vulcan price

The Aston Martin Vulcan was added to the game during the Championship Update and it is the second Aston Martin car to be added to the game via an update, after the Aston Martin One-77. The Vulcan was originally only unlockable through Multiplayer League but was later added to the Garage as a purchasable vehicle.

The Aston Martin Vulcan is a high-end vehicle in Class S. It 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. The Vulcan receives a Tuning Kit boost of +62.

The Aston Martin Vulcan has a Speed Modification of 88.65%, shared with the Arash AF10.

Performance

The Aston Martin Vulcan has very good performance in all aspects, making it capable of handling any track.

Within Class S, the Vulcan faces some fierce rivalry from the Arrinera Hussarya GT, Lamborghini Aventador SV and McLaren MP4-31 in all tracks, but it is otherwise far superior to most other vehicles. The Vulcan is inferior to the Devel Sixteen Prototype in Tokyo and occasionally McLaren MP4-31 in Dubai. The Vulcan has the second-fastest speed in Class S, only behind the Devel Sixteen (which has otherwise poor performance in all other aspects).

Within the entire game (including Class A), the Vulcan can also be inferior to the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special EditionChevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, and possibly even the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage in some situations (especially in Tokyo). However, these cars can only hope to compete with the Vulcan on long and simple tracks owing to their inferior acceleration, handling and drifting.

The McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, from Class A, is also a rival to the Vulcan, Hussarya GT and MP4-31 on short tracks, being only slightly inferior to those vehicles. Within the entire game, the Vulcan has the fifth-fastest speed, at 507.3km/h.

The Vulcan also has very good acceleration, handling, drifting, and nitro efficiency (6/10/14).

Official review

This is the official review of the Aston Martin Vulcan on the Asphalt YouTube channel and published on January 20, 2017:

Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 7.028s

Perfect nitro duration: 10.560s

Triple nitro duration: 7.425s

French Guiana lap time: 53.856s

Final verdict: "The Aston Martin Vulcan is a truly amazing machine. Almost every statistic is perfect and the car can make insane times on all tracks. It is without a doubt the best car in Asphalt 8."

Usage

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 (0500 5050 tuning, which achieves maximum raw top speed), 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-MAX+PRO multiplayer tunes for the Vulcan:

  • Max 0400 Pro 5050 = rank 1498 = 456.6 km/h (283.7 mph)
  • Max 0500 Pro 5050 = rank 1562 = 477 km/h (296 mph)
  • Max 0502 Pro 5050 = rank 1586 = 482 km/h (300 mph)
  • Max 1502 Pro 5052 = rank 1597 = 485 km/h (301mph)
  • Max 5501 Pro 5555 = rank 1660 = 491 km/h (305 mph)
  • Max 2504 Pro 5054 = rank 1657 = 495 km/h (307.6 mph)
  • Max 5504 Pro 5055 = rank 1679 = 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)

Price

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 Vulcan's purchase price is A8Tokens 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 A8Tokens 11,400.

Maxing out the car costs A8Credits 3,354,600 or A8Tokens 22,815, while Pro Kits require A8Credits 1,681,775, 23 of each Class S Parts card, 32 V12 Engines, 32 Mid-Tech cards, and 24 Advanced Tech cards.

On January 22, 2018, the Vulcan was featured in the "Finals Cup 2", with the top 3 positions receiving the car as a reward.

Availability

From February 10, 2017 onwards, the Aston Martin Vulcan was made available in the Garage.

Worthiness

The Vulcan, despite its high price, has exceptional and truly amazing all-rounded performance. It is also the fastest car with good performance in all other stats, as the 4 cars faster than it, the SLK 55 AMG SE, Devel Sixteen, Corvette Grand Sport and Hommage, all suffer in at least one aspect.

Hence, the Vulcan will be the dominant car in virtually all TLEs featuring it. Adding on to that, even if one already has a competitive S Class car like Hussarya GT or MP4-31, the Vulcan can be Multiplayer tuned fairly well starting from ranks of 1500 all the way to 1800+.

Therefore, it is extremely recommended for virtually all players to get the Vulcan.
