The Aston Martin Vulcan (also abbreviated as AM Vulcan) is a track-only hypercar that acts as Aston Martin's entry into the hypercar market, based on the Aston Martin One-77.

Description

The Vulcan is a track-only hypercar launched in 2015 by Aston Martin at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It is a rear-wheel drive, track-only hypercar that runs on a new 7.0 L (6,949 cc; 424.1 cu in) naturally aspirated V12 engine mounted on an aluminium alloy chassis and carbon fibre body delivering 820 hp (611 kW) and 590 ft·lb (800 N·m) of torque. The Vulcan is fitted with carbon ceramic brakes, magnesium torque tube with a carbon fibre propeller shaft, limited-slip differential, Xtrac 6-speed sequential gearbox and has a kerb weight of 2998 lb (1360 kg). The Vulcan is designed by Aston Martin's creative officer Marek Reichman, taking inspirations from Aston Martin current models Vantage and DB9. The Vulcan is a limited edition vehicle, with only 24 cars, each priced at $2.3 million.

The Vulcan is capable of 0 - 60 mph (0 - 97 km/h) in 3 seconds and a top speed of at least 205 mph (330 km/h).

The Vulcan's name is a reference to the Cold War-era British bombers of the same name, as well as the Roman god of fire, Vulcan, whose Greek counterpart is Hephaestus.

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Summary

A8 Vulcan stats (MP KMH)

The Aston Martin Vulcan was introduced during the Championship Update as a high-end Class S car with the following rank statistics:

  • Starting rank: 1220
    • This is the lowest of any Class S vehicle.
  • MAX rank: 1609 (+389)
  • MAX+PRO rank: 1806 (+197)
  • Tuning Kit bonus: +62
    • This is the current highest in all of Class S.
  • Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 586
    • This is the current largest in all of Class S.
  • Upgrade rank percentages: 5/55/15/25
  • Speed Modifier: 88.65%
  • Nitro Efficiency: 6/10/14

Performance

The Aston Martin Vulcan has very good performance in all aspects, making it capable of handling any track.

Within Class S, the AM Vulcan faces some rivalry from the Ferrari 488 Pista, Arrinera Hussarya GT, Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV, and McLaren MP4-31 on all tracks, but it is otherwise superior to most other vehicles. The Vulcan is inferior to the Devel Sixteen Prototype in Tokyo and occasionally to the McLaren MP4-31 in Dubai and some versions of Tenerife. The Vulcan is the fourth-fastest car in Class S (not counting the supercharged speed of the Kawasaki Ninja H2R), behind the Devel Sixteen (which has otherwise poor performance in all other aspects), the two-way tie between the Apollo Intensa Emozione and 2018 McLaren X2 (the latter two are superior against the AM Vulcan on all tracks), and the Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 (which is also superior against the AM Vulcan on all tracks)

Within the entire game (including Class A), the Vulcan can also be inferior to the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special EditionChevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, Lightning LS-218, and possibly even the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage in some situations (especially in Tokyo). However, these cars can only compete with the Vulcan on long and simple tracks due to their inferior acceleration, handling, drifting, and, in the case of the SLK SE and BMW Hommage, nitro efficiency.

The McLaren Mercedes MP4-25 and Rezvani Beast Alpha are also rivals to the Vulcan, Hussarya GT, and MP4-31 on short tracks, being only slightly inferior to those vehicles. Within the entire game, the Vulcan has the sixth-fastest speed (if not counting motorcycles), at 507.3 km/h - 315.0 mph.

Official review

This is the official review of the Aston Martin Vulcan on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by TheHawtDawg1 and published on January 20, 2017:

Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 7.028s

Perfect nitro duration: 10.560s

Triple nitro duration: 7.425s

French Guiana lap time: 53.856s

Final verdict: "The Aston Martin Vulcan is a truly amazing machine. Almost every statistic is perfect and the car can make insane times on all tracks. It is without a doubt the best car in Asphalt 8."

Usage

The AM Vulcan can actually be tuned for low-rank Multiplayer matches due to its low starting rank. On the other hand, a Multiplayer-tuned Vulcan below 1400 is mostly inferior to other low-rank Multiplayer favorites like the Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic, McLaren MP4/8, and TVR Sagaris. Because of this, the player is generally better off by tuning the Vulcan to 1562 or higher (0500 5050 tuning, which achieves maximum raw top speed), and if possible, getting it MAX+PRO, at which the Vulcan will show off its full potential.

The following are some of the better non-MAX+PRO multiplayer tunes for the Vulcan:

  • Max 0400 Pro 5050 = rank 1498 = 456.6 km/h (283.7 mph)
  • Max 0500 Pro 5050 = rank 1562 = 477 km/h (296 mph)
  • Max 0502 Pro 5050 = rank 1586 = 482 km/h (300 mph)
  • Max 1502 Pro 5052 = rank 1597 = 485 km/h (301 mph)
  • Max 5501 Pro 5555 = rank 1660 = 491 km/h (305 mph)
  • Max 2504 Pro 5054 = rank 1657 = 495 km/h (307.6 mph)
  • Max 5504 Pro 5055 = rank 1679 = 496.6 km/h (308.6 mph)
    • This is one of the most balanced tunings, with generally good matchmaking.
  • Max 5505 Pro 5555 = rank 1747 = 507.3 km/h (315.0 mph
    • This is the best tuning for the Vulcan following the introduction of the Apollo Intensa Emozione.

At lower ranks, it also faces competition against the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition and Porsche Carrera GT, but is otherwise superior to them above rank 1586.

As of the Asphalt Moments Update, the Apollo IE and McLaren X2 have surpassed the Vulcan in all respects. The Apollo IE is an upgraded version of the Vulcan with slightly higher top speed while the McLaren X2 is an upgraded McLaren MP4-31 with even higher instability. Despite this, the restrictive availability of both vehicles, as well as their high upgrade requirements (the A8Tokens-only upgrades of the IE and the 64 Custom Racing Engines of the latter), make the Vulcan considerably easier to obtain and upgrade. In addition, the Lambo Centenario is basically an upgraded AM Vulcan with a stronger focus on raw speed, but is plagued with A8Tokens-only upgrades spanning all Level 4 and Level 5 Upgrades and an equally extreme Pro Kit requirement of 60 V12 MPI Engines. The Vulcan also remains the best Aston Martin vehicle to date, and remains dominant in any TLEs that do not feature the IE, X2, and Centenario, although some events may feature the Vulcan and MP4-31 together.

Price

The Aston Martin Vulcan is the fourth car to be released as a Multiplayer League reward, after the TVR Sagaris, McLaren 570S, and Chevrolet Corvette C3. It was an Elite League reward for the Winter Wonder Season in January 2017.

The Vulcan has a purchase price of A8Tokens 14,250. Upgrades cost A8Credits 3,354,600 or A8Tokens 22,815, while Pro Kits require A8Credits 1,681,775, 23 of each Class S Parts card, 32 each of V12 Engine and Mid-Tech, and 24 Advanced Tech cards.

Asphalt 9: Legends

Overview

Vulcan

The Aston Martin Vulcan now appears as a low Class A car with the following rank statistics:

  • Starting rank: 1,970 (45 BPs)
  • 1* rank: 2,202
  • 2* rank: 2,454 (21 BPs)
  • 3* rank: 2,736 (28 BPs)
  • 4* rank: 3,012 (42 BPs)

Upgrades for the AM Vulcan require 20 import parts, 20 class parts, and 8 Vulcan Import Parts. Custom colors are unlocked at 2 stars, and the carbon fiber hood is unlocked at 4 stars.

The AM Vulcan is one of few cars available from the Daily Car Loot event; one blueprint can be obtained per day by beating the time limit using a Class B car.

The Vulcan's blueprints can also be obtained in various seasons in Career, especially in the Aston Martin season in Season 2.

Usage

Similar to its Asphalt 8: Airborne rendition, the Asphalt 9: Legends Aston Martin Vulcan has a high top speed, decent acceleration and handling, and average nitro efficiency.

With its well-rounded stats, the Vulcan is a good choice for multiplayer.

Fuel refills take 3 hours for 5 units. Advertisement refilling rate is about 25% or 30%.
