The 2016 Aston Martin Vulcan is a hypercar that appears in Forza Horizon 3 as part of The Smoking Tire Car Pack and in various E3 2017 gameplay footages of Forza Motorsport 7[1].

Based on the Aston Martin One-77, the Vulcan is a track-only hypercar by Aston Martin.

Description Edit

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.

Characteristics Edit

The Aston Martin Vulcan is powered by Aston Martin's most powerful version of their 7.0L (6,949 cc) naturally aspirated V12 engine, with 820 hp (831 PS; 611 kW) at 7,750 rpm and 590 ft·lb (800 Nm) of torque at 6,500 rpm. Its name is a reference to the British Cold War-era bombers of the same name.

Aston Martin planned to produce only 24 examples of the car worldwide, each priced above US$2,000,000.

Driving Characteristics Edit

The Aston Martin Vulcan presents itself as the best-performing Aston Martin in the Forza series, with a huge emphasis on handling and braking. The Vulcan dominates on complex tracks, especially because the Vulcan can corner at most 1.7 Gs and on average 1.51 Gs. Conversely, it actually isn't the fastest Aston Martin top speed-wise, as it can only reach 193 mph (312 km/h) at stock. The Vulcan, on the other hand, manages quick acceleration, with 0-60 mph occurring within 3 seconds.

In a drag race, the Aston Martin Vulcan can't beat the GTA Spano nor the Pagani Huayra BC, both of which have much superior speed and acceleration stats over the Vulcan. Even then, the Vulcan can barely beat the 2017 Nissan GT-R only due to being faster to 100 mph (161 km/h) and beyond.
