The Aston Martin Vulcan is one of the most exclusive cars ever built. Just 24 of the £1.8m Vulcans are being made – and even if you can afford to buy one, it’s so hard to drive that Aston is offering owners one-on-one tuition from its stable of racing drivers.
So when Matt Prior got the call up for the final drive of the car by anyone other than an owner or Aston employee, he jumped at the chance to strap into the bespoke carbonfibre cockpit at Silverstone.
Powered by a 7.0-litre V12 engine producing 820bhp - the most powerful normally aspirated car in production - and built to racing car standards, the Vulcan certainly lived up to the hype. Matt’s verdict? “The Aston Vulcan is as fast as a McLaren P1 but even more immersive.” High praise indeed. Press play to enjoy the full experience.
