The one and only Jeremy Clarkson decided to take one of the coolest and best-performing cars in the world, the Aston Martin Vulcan for a spin in Amazon’s Grand Tour
The show is a spin-off of Top Gear, and features the iconic trio and their motoring adventures. In order to reduce similarity to Top Gear, many elements were changed, but the show is as fun as ever.
The car in question is the Aston Martin Vulcan, one of the 24 produced and sold units. Don’t bother trying to get your own, they’re all already sold. This car really does deserve the title “hardcore” as this is a pure racing car. Aston Martin haven’t skimped on parts and technology. Of course, it shows.
The Vulcan is an answer to cars like the McLaren P1 GTR or the Ferrari FXX K, but this one blows them out of the water by being much wilder and pure. Its 7liter V12 naturally aspirated engine roars like mad and produces 820 horsepower at 7,750 rpm and 779 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. With a six-speed transmission not unfit for a dedicated race car, we feel you wouldn’t mind nipping to the store with this baby.
Or perhaps to a race track? You be the judge:
