The Aston Martin Vulcan is sub-zero cool, and going beyond reason, built to make the world the happier place. It doesn’t comply with regulations, well, because it doesn’t want to race against any other vehicle.

All it was created for is to go around the suitably wide tracks faster than the soundwaves and leaving its sidepipes, and daring others to lap it quicker, driving anything with the roof on.

Unfortunately, there’s the package available for those who intend to turn it into the road car, which is just silly, but not in the good way. Here is why.

The Vulcan packs Aston’s ancient, yet fantastic V12 (7.0 liters worth in a Vulcan) in its purest form, tuned to send 820 hp to the rear.

With such figures comes the lot of aero, wings and spoilers that only work at speed, and with no road surface issues in sight.

Raising its ride hight and toning down its exhausts just to be able to drive it ten miles the year on public roads with the PWR dial set to 500 horsepower is no less than sacrilege. Plus, it won’t work. And it just won’t, because it isn’t supposed to.

The thing is, today, around $4 million will buy you the McLaren P1 GTR converted to road-legal specification by Lanzante.

McLaren built the total of 58 P1 GTRs, 27 of which got converted so far. When you ask McLaren Special Operations why they let the outside company grab the job, they have the very simple answer: The GTR isn’t supposed to be the road car. If somebody wanted the road car, we built 375+ P1s.
