2016 Aston Martin VULCAN Meets Legendary Avro Vulcan Namesake

More than a few days late on this news, but it is too good to skip! Aston Martin’s ultra-high-performance flagship just had a meet and greet with its namesake, the Avro Vulcan nuclear bomber!  The Vulcan of the RAF has kept Britain and the world safe from the threat of nuclear weapons for the last 50 years, but will retire this month to the annals of history. And in doing so, this nuclear deterrent will enter the hall of fame for long-range strategic bombers. The beauty of the aircraft and its innovative, ahead-of-its-time delta wing design are icons for all industrial design. Just think that the UK went from making Lancaster propeller bombers to making a near-supersonic jet in just ten short years.  The fact that the Vulcan never had to complete its grim mission is a testament to its powerful deterrent effect on hostile powers. We all owe this …

2016 BRABUS 850 4×4 Coupe is GLE63 Pumped Up to 850HP

Holy shiz! Look at this machine. Somehow, the full customization upgrade from BRABUS rocket sedans is even more intense on the SUVs. The new GLE63 Coupe is a perfect starting point. A launchpad, if you will. And stand back when this sucker blasts off! 3.8-seconds to 62-mph is the new pace, nearly a half-second quicker than the stock truck and its ~573HP.  Not just induction or electronics tweaks here. Nor just fortified engine internals. Nope, this 850 “6.0” has that name for a reason: the whole displacement of the motor is upped from 5.5-liters to 6.0L. This is a perfect torque-rich change for the heavy and 4Matic truck to bolt off the line with ferocious energy. Torque is limited to 1000-nm, as is top speed to a socially-responsible 200-mph even.   2016 BRABUS GLE63 Coupe World premiere at the IAA 2015 BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4×4 Coupe   Zero – …

Updated 5.10.15 The 2016 Aston Martin Vulcan has been a real showstopper since its surprise reveal in Geneva. Replacing the One-77 as the ultra-fast brand flagship, the Vulcan will be a track-only wonder when it arrives to its 25 ultra-wealthy owners. But boy is this car hard to photograph in auto show environments! Its gloss-black lower aero treatment is delicious and highly advanced, but washes out in most indoor light. So in-person viewing will be extra important to clinch prized deposits. To that end, the Vulcan swooped into Dubai recently to be the local showroom’s electro-magnet… drawing in the great and good for an up-close look. For the rest of us, photos will have to suffice. Included below are 40 new images of this intriguing and mysterious new hypercar.     2016 Aston Martin VULCAN PREVIOUS WOW! This new Aston Martin flagship has some serious thrills in store for its …

850HP 2016 Aston Martin VULCAN Is All-New Tactical Strike Flagship with 7.0L Racing V12

2016-Aston-Martin-VULCAN-8a

  WOW! This new Aston Martin flagship has some serious thrills in store for its lucky owners. Named to honor the famous Avro Vulcan bomber, the Aston Vulcan will seek to match the excitement, adrenaline and glory of the first tactical nuclear strike plane ever produced. Luckily, this new track-only Aston delivers the goods without any fallout or blowback…. To continue the theme, the Vulcan was designed in a time when nuclear bombs had to still be dropped. Although the ICBM would arrive in the 1960s along with the production bomber, this plane was still a critical part of the US and Allied plan to respond to a Soviet attack. England was thought to be a primary target, so planes were always hot and ready to take off — often assuming the country would be destroyed before they made a return trip. This is the plane the Thunderball bad-guys stole, …
