The Most Thrilling Cars From the 2015 Geneva Motor Show

The Vulcan
The Vulcan
Aston Martin finally unveiled the Vulcan, the car Aston executives are calling “the most extreme supercar” they have ever made. Its name originated in British aerospace (not, as you might home, from the original Vulcan played by recently departed actor Leonard Nimoy). The Royal Air Force actually flew a jet bomber named the Vulcan from 1956 to 1984. Aston bought the trademark to the name three months ago.
