The Aston Martin Vulcan is simply one of the best looking cars money can buy right now. Aston introduced the Vulcan earlier this year at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Immediately, the $US2.3 million hypercar became the talk of the town. The Vulcan’s intoxicating combination of style, aggression, and astronomical price tag made it a stand out at one of the most action-packed car shows in recent memory.
The Vulcan name fits perfectly with the car. Although the car shares its name with the Roman god of fire and the planet that produced the Starship Enterprise’s science officer, the actual namesake for the Aston is one of the most iconic planes of the Cold War — The Avro Vulcan bomber.
“Clearly the Avro Vulcan provided the inspiration for the naming of our most extreme sports car,” Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said in a statement.
