The 800-plus bhp, all-carbon fibre Aston Martin Vulcan will run on the Coventry Motofest ring road circuit in its first ever appearance on a UK public road. Peter will give demonstration display laps in two separate slots on the long track programme on both Saturday and Sunday of the festival weekend. Peter has played a core role in the Vulcan programme over the past year.
James Noble, Coventry Motofest Event Director, said: “We are incredibly excited to have the Aston Martin Vulcan taking part in this year’s Coventry Motofest. “It will be a fantastic occasion as the Vulcan runs on a public road circuit for the first time in the UK, offering the crowds at Coventry Motofest the chance to get a unique close up look at this amazing car.
The Aston Martin Vulcan set to appear at Coventry Motofest is one of only 24 examples worldwide and is born out of extensive motorsport experience, using the Aston Martin brand’s flair for design and engineering ingenuity. Styled entirely in-house by the Aston Martin design team led by Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, and with a design language hinting at the next generation of Aston Martin sports cars, this supercar is powered by the most potent iteration yet of the company’s naturally-aspirated, 7.0-litre V12 petrol engine.
With its 800-plus bhp powerplant developed in conjunction with Aston Martin Racing, this front mid-engined, rear-wheel drive sports car draws extensively on the brand’s rich GT motorsport experience.
Utilising the techniques of world-class motorsport engineering, the supercar sees its power-to-weight ratio exceed those of the GTE cars which compete in the FIA’s annual World Endurance Championship.
