The Aston Martin Vulcan is a real racing machine. Not just in terms of its appearance. He has already convinced us of his driving qualities at an exclusive drive on the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi (>>> to the F ahrbericht ). Seven liter V12, free suction, 831 hp, 780 Nm, 1,360 kilograms empty weight - all mixed together from carbon, aluminum, titanium and steel. 0-100 km /h: Tears down the hardcore Aston in 2.8 seconds. But only on the racetrack. Because, as the British put it so beautifully, the Vulcan is 'Track Only', ie only designed and made for the closed piste. Like the Ferrari FXX K and McLaren P1 GT-R.

Vulcan converted to street sweeper in three to four months

Which brings us to the topic: The track toys from Ferrari and McLaren are derived from a street version. Aston Martin has the Vulcan as pure racer developed and no street counterpart on offer. But there should be a street legal version of the Vulcan soon. So the opposite way to McLaren and Ferrari: a brutal racing machine becomes a super sports car for the public roads. However, Aston Martin does not convert its Vulcan itself. How does that fit together?

Will soon be available with street legal approval: Aston Martin Vulcan with 831 hp.

Quite simply: a British motorsport company and aSpecialist for extreme conversions educates the Aston Martin Vulcan to the highway hunter. Quite legal and approved by the manufacturer itself.

By the end of the year, the RML Group wants to have redesigned the first Aston Martin Vulcan, which is limited to a total of 24 copies. Very important: knitted and not reversed. The company has set itself the goal of ensuring that the super sports car retains its uncompromising streak on public roads. You don't teach a wild dog to meow.

In order for the Vulcan to really get street legal, RML has to adapt it to the respective regulations of the countries. Keyword: safety regulations. And to ensure that it doesn't rumble across the streets, adjustments to the chassis and vehicle height are certainly necessary. The Racetrack version is only 60 mm above the ground at the front and 80 mm at the rear. RML, based in Wellingborough (Northamptonshire), will certainly make one or two customer requests come true. All for a corresponding amount of money. How much is not yet known. How long does the conversion take, however: RML estimates three to four months.
