The Aston Martin Vulcan is a car that will set you back over 2 million dollars. The problem, however, is that it wasn’t looking like it was going to be street legal. Why dish out that kind of cash if you’re not able to take your fancy new ride onto the streets?

Luckily, Aston Martin plans on putting a program into place that will let you transform your Vulcan to be able to take it out on the road. Out of the factory, the Vulcan is barely raised off the asphalt. As you could imagine, this would be disastrous on any street that isn’t perfectly flat. You hit one bump and your ride is severely damaged.

It’s reported that Aston Martin is working with an outside company to make the conversions to street legal use.  The conversions are said to take three months to complete.

Aston Martin Vulcan: A Car for the Gods

Aston Martin debuted the track-only Vulcan recently. Among other things, the Vulcan sported an enormous rear wing that extends beyond the width of the hypercar’s bodywork, a unique cockpit design, an exterior design that breathes new life into the brand, and a few traditional Aston Martin touches.

The Aston Martin Vulcan hits the track in the latest video from the automaker, which spotlights different design elements that make this hypercar unique. That rear wing is hard to miss, but it’s all but forgotten as soon as the driver revs the engine. That engine is a 7.0-liter V-12 that makes upwards of 800 hp.

With a price at $2 million-plus, the Vulcan joins the ranks of other ultra-expensive, track-only cars such as the McLaren P1 GTR, Ferrari FXX and FXX K, Pagani Zonda R, and the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento. This is just the first step in Aston’s plan to expand its lineup to better compete with the likes of Ferrari and other top competitors, and with this track-focused, 225-mph hypercar, the automaker is well on its way.
