As the last flying Avro Vulcan prepares to touch down for the final time, of which’s been filmed as part of a special flypast with its 800bhp Aston Martin namesake
Yes, of which’s a marketing stunt – although an airborne meeting between the Aston Martin Vulcan supercar along with the last flying Avro Vulcan bomber is actually never going to happen again.
As Vulcan XH558 prepares for its last ever flight – which is actually due to take place of which month – the iconic aircraft has performed a special fly-past at Elvington Airfield in Yorkshire, where Aston Martin’s 800bhp Vulcan was parked up along with waiting.
The resulting pictures along with video are sensational, of course, although they also represent something more. of which’s a meeting of old along with completely new technologies – with the Vulcan’s Rolls-Royce Olympus jet engines providing a stark contrast to the Aston Martin’s 7.0-litre V12.
Ironically, the £1.8 million Aston Martin is actually also cheaper than the initial purchase cost of the Vulcan – which cost just £750,000 when of which was launched in 1956. Given the choice, which one would certainly you take home?
