The Vulcan that's out of this world.

This Aston Martin Vulcan - their most breathtaking car to date with an all-carbon fibre body - was one of three hypercars on show at this year's Salon Prive event at Blenheim Palace.

The Vulcan is powered by a naturally-aspirated, 7.0 litre V12 engine and is capable of 0-60mph in less than three seconds, with a top speed of over 200mph. Each Vulcan is built to a driver's requirements, with a limited exclusive production run of just 24 cars.

It has a six-figure price tag and ownership is invitation only.Also on display at the Oxfordshire country house was a track-only 1000bhp Ferrari FXX K and a McLaren P1 GTR with a 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 petrol engine, coupled to an electric motor providing an extra 200PS.
