Watch This 820-HP Aston Martin Vulcan Monster Up a British Hillclimb

When Aston Martin built the Vulcan, it decided the car should be confined to track use on closed circuits. The 820-horsepower car was never meant to drive on public roads, which is why this video of a Vulcan flying up a hillclimb course is the coolest thing you'll see today.

Powered by a 7.0-liter naturally aspirated V12, the Vulcan was sold to 24 of Aston's most important customers as a track toy for them to use during Aston Martin-sanctioned events around the world.

Watch for yourself, and make sure to turn the volume up for that legendary V12.
