Seen in Burlington today: Aston Martin Vulcan

A beast of a car landed in Massachusetts today and I went to see it. 

British car maker Aston Martin made only 24 of the monster machines it calls the Vulcan, and only two of those made their way to the United States. One of them showed up at the Mercedes Benz dealership in Burlington this morning. How can you resist trekking out there to take a look? 

Suffice it to say, the Vulcan is unique - a wild combo of insane styling, outrageously-sized engine bay and massive rear wing. The car is a behemoth and it's really quite hard to imagine how anyone would ever drive it, but so special is it that I'm very glad I was there. Here is a short video of the car starting its engine and driving off:

Below are my photos and of this one-of-a-kind maniac track machine.
