Wildest As­ton ever gets wilder

Bayside and Northern Suburbs Star - - MOTORING SCENE -

AS­TON Martin is in the busi­ness of mak­ing ex­clu­siv­ity an art form. Not con­tent with pro­duc­ing just 24 of its track-only Vul­can mod­els, the Bri­tish brand is now of­fer­ing th­ese two dozen lucky own­ers a chance to sep­a­rate them­selves from the rest with this, the AMR Pro up­grade pack­age. It means As­ton’s self-pro­claimed wildest-ever su­per­car can be made even more bonkers thanks to a fo­cus on in­creased down­force via ex­ten­sive aero­dy­namic en­hance­ments and shorter gear ra­tios. As a re­sult, down­force over a “nor­mal” Vul­can is im­proved by about 25% with the AMR Pro kit. The Vul­can uses a 7.0-litre V12 good for 600kW and costs a chunky $2.3 mil­lion ($3 mil­lion AUD), but there’s no word on how much ex­tra own­ers will have to pay for the AMR Pro kit. But re­ally, they prob­a­bly don’t care.
