Well, that sure happened quick: someone is already going to sell their violently purple, 800-horsepower Aston Martin Vulcan at the Mecum Monterey Auction in August.
You’ll remember the Vulcan as Aston’s super-limited edition, track-only, 7.0-liter V12 beast. The thing has chest hair, I swear. Only 24 were made, and this Joker-approved one is #11.
Usually, when a boutique car manufacturer creates an exclusive model such as the Vulcan, it also doesn’t want the buyer to flip it right away and make a profit. We reached out to Aston Martin, asking if this is a manufacturer-approved sale. In an email, Aston Martin responded, “Simple answer—if our customers choose to sell their cars then that is entirely their choice.”
That was from a dealer. #11 will head to auction, where it could go for lower or much, much higher than that.
Start saving, folks. You have a little time. The Mecum Monterey Auction occurs August 18th to 20th.
