In an Australian-first, fans from around the country will be treated to a thrilling display when the limited edition supercar, one of only 24 in the world, takes to the streets of Adelaide on the iconic Clipsal 500 circuit.
The track-only supercar was unveiled at the Geneva motor show in 2015 and is owned by Australian businessman Tony Quinn. It is worth more than $4 million (AUD) and boasts the most extreme performance ever achieved by an Aston Martin production car.
Quinn, who owns the only Vulcan in the Southern Hemisphere says he is excited to bring the rare car to Australia for the first time and is looking forward to seeing how the car performs around the thrilling Adelaide street circuit.
“The Vulcan is a magnificent car and I’m thrilled to be able to show it off for the first time in Australia at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide. Australia has so many car enthusiasts and it’s a privilege to be able display the car for them in Adelaide; it’s also exciting for me to test the car out around the iconic Clipsal 500 circuit,” Quinn said.
South Australian Minister for Tourism Leon Bignell said the Vulcan’s inclusion in the race program was a coup for the event and noted the exclusive car will add to the excitement for car enthusiasts.
“Each year we work towards raising the bar of our world class events and give visitors something spectacular,” Bignell said.
Event with organisers have confirmed the car will be on display for the duration of the event for fans to view, with the strength and power of the car really on show when it takes to the track for a hot lap on all four days of the event.
One of the coveted hot laps will be available for purchase via a live auction at the Ladies Day Luncheon; with funds raised to be donated to Oz Harvest, the official charity partner of the 2017 Clipsal 500 Adelaide as well as the OC Challenge (Ovarian Cancer awareness) and The Mary Potter Foundation.
