Lovecars had a chat with the head engineer of RML Group to find out what was changed to make the Vulcan street legal. Aside from the obvious addition of headlights and Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires, there are a ton of other modifications made for both compliance and convenience.

Things like taillight covers, a smaller splitter, DB11 side mirrors, a retuned suspension, revised gear ratios, electric door locks, steering wheel padding, more comfortable seats, and an ECU recalibration are just a few of the changes that make sure this Vulcan can handle everyday roads without issue.

Watch for yourself to see how the entire transformation process went down.

Aston Martin Brings Back a Legend with the New V12 Vantage V600 .
The hilariously powerful V8 Vantage V600 lives on in the form of this limited-edition, 591 horsepower V12 Vantage.The 1980s and early '90s were not a good time for Aston, with numerous ownership changes and dismal sales, but a car by the name of the V8 Vantage arguably saved the brand from extinction. A more powerful version of the now-deceased Aston Martin Virage, the Vantage produced 550 horsepower from its twin-supercharged V-8. For the 1998 model year, A V600 package was offered that brought the power output up to a monstrous 600 horses, the most powerful Vantage ever.
