Pictures don’t get more British than this. Or fuel consuming.

Aston Martin says their 800 horsepower V12 track monster was named after Britain’s legendary Cold War bomber aircraft, the Avro Vulcan. What you see above is the last flying Vulcan doing one of its final flybys before going into retirement. Pretty much an unrepeatable moment.

While the Vulcan To The Sky Trust’s legendary XH558 is done with flying after this season, Aston Martin is still in the process of making 24 of their Vulcans as a farewell worthy of their iconic V12 engine.

As for your new wallpapers...
