There’s been a lot of talk lately about Aston Martin’s financial troubles and whether or not the brand will manage to survive on its own. A recent report suggests the Brits might receive financial backing from its biggest shareholder, Italy-based equity fund Investindustrial S.p.A., but while that possibility won’t materialize anytime soon, it seems Aston Martin is ready to launch an all-new vehicle nevertheless. Dubbed Vulcan and described as “something very special,” Aston Martin’s new project turned out to be a track-focused supercar in the vein of the Ferrari FXX K and the McLaren P1 GTR. With the 2015 Geneva Motor Show right around the corner, the Brits unleashed the Vulcan for the whole world to see, and, as it turns out, Gaydon’s new baby is as special as it gets.

Skeptics that expected to see a beefed up, race-spec Vantage are in for quite a surprise, as the Vulcan is brand-new not only in design, but under the hood as well. What’s more, it comes with its own racing program and the kind of exclusivity only Ferrari was able to deliver until now. There’s a lot of PR talk coming with all-new vehicles nowadays, but Aston Martin nailed it when it described the Vulcan as the “brand’s most intense and exhilarating creation to date.” Keep reading to find out why.
