In 2015, Aston Martin unveiled their astonishing track-only supercar – Vulcan. Featuring over 800bhp and a strictly limited model run of just 24 examples, Vulcan was the wildest Aston Martin ever produced. Now however, in 2017, Aston Martin has revealed that they will be launching an even more extreme version of Vulcan that will be named Vulcan AMR Pro.
Making its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017, Vulcan AMR Pro is the third car to be announced that sits within Aston Martin’s new sub-brand, Aston Martin AMR. Reaching an entirely new level of excitement, Vulcan AMR Pro receives a performance upgrade package that increases downforce and overall speed; ultimately underlining Vulcan’s status as the world’s most extreme track car.
Talking of Vulcan AMR Pro, Aston Martin Vice President and Chief Special Operations Officer, David King, said:
“When we first conceived the Aston Martin Vulcan it was to create something that expressed Aston Martin’s wilder side. The result was an ultimate track car – one free from the regulations and constraints of World Championship competition. A flight of fantasy, if you like. But one we could share with our keenest customers. Like anything with a motorsport mindset, once we’d built and delivered all 24 Vulcans we started thinking about how to make it quicker. And so the Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro was born. The shorter gearing makes for truly explosive acceleration between the corners, while the aero package’s increased downforce and improved balance gives our customers the all-important confidence to explore the extraordinary performance on offer.”
The incredible new Vulcan AMR Pro performance package is on offer to all 24 owners of Vulcan, with the first already being installed by the team at Q by Aston Martin Advanced Operations. The first performance packages are expected to be completed in Autumn 2017 and the lucky owners will be welcomed to the same exclusive driving events and training facilities that have always been offered to Vulcan owners.
