Aston Martin has taken the wraps off its new track-only supercar, the Vulcan, ahead of its world debut at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

The 800-plus horsepower, all-carbon Aston will see a limited production run of 24 cars worldwide, with customers’ focus being on track days.

“Aston Martin Vulcan is, by its very nature, a rare and thrilling supercar,” said Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer.

“Designed and engineered to deliver a genuinely bespoke driving experience that draws on our rich heritage, this car tailors its power and handling to both the capabilities of the driver and the characteristics of the track.

“A sports car for true sports car lovers, I believe the Aston Martin Vulcan – and the unique ownership program that sits behind it – sets a whole new standard in the ultra-high luxury supercar class.”

Powered by a 7.0-liter, V12 gasoline engine, the Vulcan takes lessons learned from Aston Martin’s extensive GT racing experience, including a carbon fiber monocoque and body, which has been constructed by longtime partner Multmatic.

Remarkably, the car features a power-to-weight ratio that exceeds that of its current Vantage GTE car.

The car will premiere at Geneva at 10:15 a.m. local on March 3.
