Today the motoring press have been cooing over the brand new Aston Martin Vulcan, a car that like the Pagani Zonda R or Ferrari FXX K has been developed to for use on the track only. People are calling it the most insane Aston Martin ever, but you can't help but draw a couple of comparisons with the Marsh Plant DBS V8.

This DBS V8 would have gone head to head against V12 E-Types, Porsche 935s and other pieces of lunacy from that brilliant age of over the top racing. They never stopped tinkering with the car and whis is how it looks today. It's even for sale if you've got the money!

It looks like the car suffered greatly from understeer in tight corners, probably explaining why more of these weren't made. Looks like Marsh Plant even ran a DB4 at one point! The car is being sold by Dukes of London.
