Recently we wrote that Aston Martin was prepared to debut their all new track-only vehicle, the Vulcan, at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show. At first they gave us a little teaser in the form of a short video clip of the supposed car on the track. Now, unexpectedly , Aston Martin has released more details and official images of their new track beast.

From the press release, Aston Martin has revealed some quite exciting details about the new Vulcan track car. First and foremost is the powertrain that will propel this monstrous car. The Aston Martin Vulcan will be powered by a 7.0L V12, and although an official power output hasn’t been stated, Aston Martin has confirmed that it will produce “over 800 horsepower”. All that power will mean squat if it has to lug around unnecessary weight, and being a track focused car, the Vulcan will extensively utilize carbon fiber in its construction. At it’s core, the Vulcan will have a carbon fiber monocoque with carbon fiber body panels made by Canadian company Multimatic, the same company that Aston turned to for the One-77 hypercar and Ford will go to for the carbon fiber construction of the new Ford GT. The Vulcan will also receive very high-tech FIA-approved racing equipment. It will get pushrod suspension, a 6 speed sequential transmission, adjustable dampers and rollbars, fully adjustable traction control, and adjustable ABS carbon ceramic brakes.

Production will be limited to a scarce 24 cars, so if you want one you should probably give Aston Martin a call right now. Although a price has not been confirmed, expect it to have a 7 figure price tag. However that price will include membership into Aston Martin’s exclusive racing development program. This program will offer customers both practical and theory training by Darren Turner, a 2 time winner in the GT1 class with Aston Martin, on some of the most renowned racing circuits in the world.

The official reveal  of the car will be on March 3rd, 2015 at the Geneva International Motor Show
