Teasers before an auto show are a part of the game: A manufacturer drops hints via video or still image to get us excited for its new… whatever they’re showing. Some of it is stuff we expect but sometimes, as is the case with Aston Martin and its teaser for the Vulcan, we don’t know what’s headed our way.
The only thing official that has come from Aston Matin themselves is the name and the above video showing the rear of the car illuminating itself with the flames spat forth by the double barreled side mounted exhausts as it revs in perpetuity.
We can also see a massive fixed wing on the back, implying that whatever Vulcan is, it plans to pull some track duty. An article from Top Gear Magazine corroborates this, as they report to have eked some info from its own sources within Aston Martin,
According to them, the track-only supercar will be the most extreme car Aston Martin has ever made. It will also supposedly have an extremely limited run.
Apart from that, all we can do is hypothesize. “Most extreme” would seem to imply an engine output and/or top speed that we’ve never seen from an Aston Martin before. This suggests something that would top the One-77, Aston’s limited edition supercar that sported a 7.3-liter V12 that produced 750 horsepower that could supposedly push it to a 220 mph top speed.
Mercifully, the 2015 Geneva Auto Show is right around the corner, so we won’t have to wait too long to see just what craziness the Vulcan can cook up.
