For the record, the “Vulcan” name here is more closely related to Britain’s loud Cold War-era bombers than to the notoriously logical aliens in “Star Trek”. Nonetheless, the Vulcan is Aston Martin’s entry into the hypercar market, and there will only be 24 of these track-only vehicles built. Those lucky enough to accept the offer of purchase will find 800 hp ready to thrill from the race-inspired V12. The asking price? Somewhere north of $2 million, but the uncanny lines and performance should inspire the appropriately logical responses of longing stares and envious eyes.
— Official description [1]

The 2016 Aston Martin Vulcan, abbreviated as AM Vulcan and Aston Vulcan, is a front-engined hypercar by Aston Martin that debuted in Forza Horizon 3 as part of The Smoking Tire Car Pack and is featured in all subsequent Forza titles.

It appears as a Showcase reward in Forza Motorsport 7.

Synopsis

Based on the Aston Martin One-77, the Vulcan is a track-only hypercar by Aston Martin. Its name is a reference to the British Cold War-era bombers of the same name. Aston Martin produced only 24 examples of the car worldwide, each priced at US$2.3 million, with all but one of them not road legal.[2]

The Vulcan is powered by Aston Martin's most powerful version of their 7.0 L (6,949 cc) naturally aspirated V12 engine, with 820 hp (611 kW) at 7,750 rpm and 590 ft·lb (800 N·m) of torque at 6,500 rpm. There is a selector knob inside the car that selects power from three options: the first option delivers 500 hp (373 kW); the second option brings more power at 675 hp (503 kW); and the third option unleashes the full 820 hp (611 kW) of the engine.

The Vulcan is also fitted with carbon ceramic brakes, magnesium torque tube with a carbon fiber propeller shaft, and limited-slip differential. Tires used are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s. The carbon ceramic brakes which also increase braking performance, measure 15 in (380 mm) at the front and 14 in (360 mm) at the rear.

The Vulcan makes use of a six-speed Xtrac sequential transmission delivering power to the rear wheels. With a weight of 2998 lb (1360 kg), the Vulcan has a power-to-weight ratio of 603 hp (450 kW) per tonne.

Performance

The Vulcan is capable of 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3 seconds, 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.7 seconds, and a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h), which is downgraded to 194 mph (313 km/h) in Forza Horizon 3.

The Vulcan is the hypercar equivalent of the Dodge Viper ACR, with a focus on grip and braking. It generates huge amounts of downforce to help it corner very sharply and brake to cornering-appropriate speeds very quickly. Unlike the Viper ACR, though, it has a stronger emphasis on acceleration, handling, and top speed.

The Vulcan is considerably quicker than other production Aston Martins, as it is the only production Aston Martin with the ability to reach 100 mph (161 km/h) in less than six seconds. Just like the Viper ACR, though, its top speed is held back by its gearing and downforce to 194 mph (313 km/h) (205 mph (330 km/h) in Forza Motorsport 7), making it suitable for handling-focused tracks. It is noted for being the fastest Hypercar division car around tracks that are not focused on top speed, even faster than the Ferrari FXX K.
