Meet The World’s First Street-Legal Aston Martin Vulcan 28

With only 24 Aston Martin Vulcans in existence, it was only a matter of time before someone would turn this track-only monster into a fully compliant road car.

Unlike the McLaren P1 GTR, which was already based on a road car and therefore was easier to be converted for use on the public road, the Aston Martin Vulcan was never meant to set foot on the tarmac outside of a race track, making the achievement of seeing this particular example even greater.

RML Group undertook the project of converting the Vulcan for road usage with Aston Martin’s approval; they didn’t just want to make the car compliant with regulations but they wanted to turn the Vulcan into a more usable car, without spoiling the raw character of it.

Things like adding proper headlights to the clamshell bonnet, turn signals on the giant rear wing or door mirrors are just some of the revisions that went into creating a road-legal Vulcan, with RML Group also retuning the suspension and the engine’s software, as well as creating a less aggressive front splitter for obvious reasons.

This Is The World’s Only Road-Legal Aston Martin Vulcan 21

A small British engineering company dubbed RML Group has just created the world’s first street-legal Aston Martin Vulcan.

The firm first announced its road-legal Vulcan plans more than 18 months ago and a couple of days ago, a handful of lucky British journalists were able to jump behind the wheel of the crazy creation.

Unlike the McLaren P1 GTR which is a track-car based around the road-going P1, the Vulcan was designed from the outset with the sole purpose of being limited to track use. Consequently, the modifications RML have made to ensure the Vulcan is road-legal are much more substantial than what Lanzante did with the road-legal P1 GTR.

Up front, we can see that RML has fitted a new bonnet with small headlights and now uses the original headlights in the front bumper as DRLs. Additionally, RML has made numerous other changes to the Vulcan, including the fitment of turn signals on the end plates of the towering carbon fiber rear wing.

Final changes that are apparent in these images are plastic covers over the Vulcan’s famous taillights and a pair of small reflectors on the rear fascia.

Impressively, RML has been able to retain the standard 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V12 delivering an impressive 820 hp.

Aston Martin only produced 24 Vulcans but we wouldn’t be surprised to see a handful of other examples outfitted with the road-legal conversion in the near future.
