Before competition starts in 2016, the highly limited Aston Martin Vulcan track car officially debuted at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show.

Only 24 examples of the FIA-certified Vulcans will ever be made, with each one to go for $2.3 million. For that price, one receives a 7-liter naturally aspirated V12 making a minimum of 800 horsepower, which is sent to the Michelins in the back through a six-speed sequential gearbox.

Stopping the beast is done through Brembo race calipers mated to carbon ceramic discs, while cornering is helped by Multimatic’s Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve adjustable dampers, anti-roll bars, and push-rod suspension.

The chosen few to pilot the Vulcan will be invited to improve their skills in an intensive driving course involving a few of Aston’s offerings, including the One-77, V12 Vantage S and Vantage GT4, before competing in a one-make series in 2016.

    Yesterday we were introduced to a Bentley that looked like an Aston Martin and today to an Aston Martin that looks like a Corvette. What will be tomorrow? A Corvette that looks like a MX-5?...

  • FreedMike But will it have a badge?And maybe I don’t understand this whole truck thing, but isn’t 430 hp out of 7.3 liters a bit low? That’s not a whole lot better than the Coyote engine in the Mustang. I don’t see that as a selling point.
  • Goatshadow My favorite Lambo ever. It's gorgeous..
  • DenverMike Column shifter in all trims? Thank god someone is listening. The console shifter is just the stupidest thing ever. Frick just make the whole area useful utility. Luxury means something different in trucks. Definitely removable and I’ll make my own work station.
