LONDON -- Aston Martin will unveil the Vulcan limited-edition supercar at the upcoming Geneva auto show.
The Vulcan will be available for customers to drive on racetracks and will not be road legal, an Aston Martin spokesperson said.
The UK automaker said the Vulcan would be "the most extreme Aston Martin in our 102-year history" but did not disclose any more details ahead of its unveiling in Geneva on March 3.
Media reports said production is likely to be limited to 30 models and the Vulcan likely will be powered by V-12 engine that is more powerful than the 750-hp offered in the limited-edition One-77.
The report said the Vulcan will be sold only to loyal Aston Martin customers and will perform a similar function to the Ferrari FXX K extreme high-performance car that can only be driven at select on-track events.
On Twitter, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer linked the Vulcan’s nameplate to the iconic 1950s Vulcan delta-wing bomber. The airplane was stationed on the site of the company's factory in Gaydon, central England.
In Geneva, Aston Martin will give a clear indication of where the brand is going including the prospects of building its first SUV, Andrea Bonomi, chairman of the Investindustrial private equity firm, Aston Martin's main financial backer, said in January. Investindustrial bought a 37.5 percent stake in the British manufacturer in 2012.
