Vulcan supercar greets the Vulcan bomber


As the last remaining airworthy Avro Vulcan prepares for its final flight later this month, the iconic 1950s British V bomber has been united with its modern namesake: the Aston Martin Vulcan. Vulcan XH558 is due to retire from “active service”, going on to form the centrepiece of the educational Vulcan Aviation Academy & Heritage Centre at its home base, Robin Hood Airport near Doncaster.

Ahead of that final flight, the famous Cold War-era long-range bomber was paired with the Aston Martin Vulcan, the new track-only supercar, via a special flypast at Elvington Airfield in Yorkshire.

Benefitting fully from the Aston Martin’s design flair and engineering ingenuity, the 800bhp, completely carbon fibre Vulcan delivers truly extreme performance. Uniquely for Aston Martin, the new supercar allows its highly privileged owners (just 24 units will be built) the opportunity to precisely tailor their track-day experience through a graduating scale of detailed power and dynamic performance adjustments.
