In-game descriptionEdit

The Vulcan is a special model of Aston Martin that was revealed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Though Aston Martin had also released a 77 car limited edition 'One-77' in 2009, that was a road-going car. The Vulcan was developed through experience gained in the One-77, and is a special circuit-only model limited to just 24 cars.

The full carbon fibre monocoque and body, in a front midship/rear wheel drive layout, was designed from scratch specifically for this car. The suspension mounted on this is a push rod type, with variable shock dampers. Brakes use carbon ceramic disks and the ABS system can be adjusted by the driver. The traction control system is also variable, and can be set according to the driver's preference and the character of the track. Handling and engine output characteristics are also possible to fine tune.

The engine is Aston Martin's signature V12, increased to 7 litres in displacement and fine tuned to produced 799 BHP normally aspirated. The gearbox is an XTrac 6 speed sequential, mounted in a trans-axle layout.

The torque tube is made of magnesium, the propeller shaft is carbon. Every part of the car has been optimized for light weight and strength, keeping the total weight down to 1,350 kg. This makes the power to weight ratio an incredible 1.68 kg/BHP.

In addition to the incredible performance, owners who acquire this car receives complete technical support from Aston Martin and a dedicated circuit driving program is also provided.

TriviaEdit

  • Early in GT Sport's development, the Aston Martin Vulcan was originally going to be a Gr. X car. It was changed to N800 for unknown reasons, despite the car being non-street legal (although there is actually a road-legal conversion modification for the car in real life).
    • However, the car is still listed as Gr.X in the car list on Gran Turismo's website, contrary to in-game listing.
