Do I need an excuse to create a spectacular photo shoot with a super fighter and a bomber in the same plane ? No, it is not necessary. Combining these two ingredients can always cook a good photo story, like the one we offer below. But you should know that after the name chosen for the Aston Martin Vulcan something else . The Aston Martin Vulcan, lest we forget, is a supercar of 800 horsepower, very exclusive (only 24 units will be produced), very expensive (2.5 million euros) and is inspired by a jet fighter.
The very name of this supercar, Vulcan, is a tribute to the Avro Vulcan bomber fighter created in the fifties and designed to carry (and launch) nuclear weapons . In this photo shoot, the Aston Martin Vulcan shared the stage at Elvington airfield in Yorkshire, with the Vulcan XH558 , one of the units that still exists and is still used – from now educational reasons – in memory of those aircraft used by the Royal Air Force in the turbulent years of the Cold War
Andy Palmer, CEO Aston Martin, acknowledged that chose the name of their latest sports in honor of the fighter bomber, also to show clients the technology behind the Aston Martin Vulcan.
