Aston Martin Vulcan Exterior
You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to understand why the Aston Martin Vulcan is a premium car. It is beautiful, powerful, and fast.
The car looks and feels like a supercar. The design of the exterior obviously took inspiration from the current design of Aston Martin as well as other vintage race cars.
The nose of the Vulcan, however, is strikingly different from what you would expect from Aston Martin. Its headlamps and grilles have been relocated into the fascia. The grille, for one, is integrated into a carbon-fiber piece that also includes the side canards and splitter.
The LED headlamps are thin and barely noticeable. The vented hood is also wide compared to those of other cars in Aston Martin’s lineup.
The fenders have been redesigned as well but still have that patented Aston Martin vent. The design of the rear fascia is also new, although some details like the tail lights and side vents will remind you of the Vantage GT3 race car.
Other than that, everything else about the look of the Vulcan is unique. We’re talking here about details like the rear diffuser and the design of the deck.
When you look at the Aston Martin Vulcan from the side, you won’t think that it belongs to the current line-up of sports cars of the British automaker. It looks rugged and muscular, with race-spec side mirrors, rear haunches, and side-exit exhaust giving you the impression that this one is designed for use on the race track and not in the highways.
The entire body of the Aston Martin Vulcan is made from carbon fiber, which makes it the lightest Aston Martin car in history.
