AMR Pro upgrade package on Aston Martin Vulcan intensifies both downforce and acceleration

The already wild Aston Martin Vulcan just got wilder. This is all thanks to the performance upgrade package that was developed by AMR, which is the carmaker’s new performance brand. Introducing new Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro, an upgrade package that includes tweaks in aerodynamic and gearing.

When Aston Martin introduced the Aston Martin Vulcan at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, we already knew that this track-only supercar wasn’t an ordinary one. After all, Aston Martin conceived and engineered the Vulcan to deliver the much-desired driving excitement as well as surpass the performance of the carmaker’s Le Mans-winning race cars.

Aston Martin has already done a number of things to make sure that the owners of the only 24 examples of the Vulcan are able to enjoy a dynamic and intense driving experience. For instance, for the past two years, Vulcan owners have received step-by-step driver training from Aston Martin’s team of instructors like Darren Turner, an Aston Martin Racing works driver and three-time Le Mans winner. Owners also took part in exclusive driving events in Circuit of the Americas in the United States, Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi, Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium and Silverstone in the United Kingdom.

5 Aston Martin Vulcans are on their way to the track

Aston Martin first introduced this in the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and after a long wait, the track-only Vulcan is finally on its way. To be specific, there are actually five of them. The company released images of the hypercar covered up as they prepared for their journey, though they did not mention where these cars will be delivered.

These five cars are worth $11.5 million as each of them has a price tag of $2.5 million. The 800 horsepower (569 kilowatt) vehicle is equipped with a 7.0 liter V12 under its hood. That means that these five cars add up to a total 4,000 horsepower (2,982 kW).

The whole exterior of the car is built with carbon fiber. The Vulcan comes with a full carbon fiber chassis, a super lightweight but at the same time rigid structure that provides a strong foundation for the vehicle. The exhaust system is also made of almost weightless materials such as Inconel and Titanium. The Torque Tube stays the same as all Aston Martins but this time is made with Magnesium so it cuts 30% of the weight. Moreover, the front and side screens are 250 times stronger than glass and is shatter resistant, being made from hard-coated Polycarbonate, which also has anti-UV coating.

Aston Martin Vulcan supercar unites with Avro Vulcan jet before last flight

The Avro Vulcan, the famous British 1950s V bomber, has finally met the Aston Martin Vulcan, its modern-day namesake. This is noteworthy as it comes at a time when the last airworthy V Bomber is preparing for its final flight set later this month.

Vulcan To The Sky, a charitable trust, currently operates the Vulcan XH558. The Vulcan XH558 is expected to retire from ‘active service’ by October. After that it is expected to become the centrepiece of the Vulcan Aviation Academy & Heritage Centre which is located at the Robin Hood Airport in nearby Doncaster.

Even before the final flight, this legendary long range Cold War-era bomber was already paired with the track-only Aston Martin Vulcan supercar through a special fly-past at the Yorkshire Elvington Airfield.

2015 Geneva Preview: Aston Martin Vulcan is a track-focused dream

McLaren’s gorgeous P1 GTR will not going to be the only track-only supercar from the 2015 Geneva Motor Show as Aston Martin also unveiled today its impressive Vulcan. Limited to just 24 units worldwide, the Aston Martin Vulcan promises to be a thrilling supercar. According to Aston Martin, the Vulcan was styled in-house by the company’s design team led by Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman.

As expected, the design hints at the next-generation of Aston Martin supercars, which means that the future looks pretty good for the British manufacturer. Under the hood, there is a naturally-aspirated 7.0-liter V12 engine that pumps out over 800 hp and delivers all the power to the 345/30 x 19 rear wheels wrapped in Michelin race specification tyres.

Moreover, the engine is bolted to a race-bred rear mid-mounted Xtrac six-speed sequential gearbox. Thanks to Aston Martin’s motorsport experience, the Vulcan arrives with a track-derived pushrod suspension with anti-dive geometry, which is complemented by Multimatic’s Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) adjustable dampers and anti-roll barrs front and rear, as well as driver-adjustable anti-lock braking and variable traction control.
