Over the last few years, the stratosphere of the car industry has been getting better and better at coming up with four-wheeled examples of why one should never say never. Allow us to exemplify.
Let's take the pieces of machinery in the footage below, for instance. We're dealing with three hypercars that may just make a LaFerrari, or a McLaren P1, for that matter, seem understated.

The setup takes us to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where the infamous Hillclimb acts like a Spanish boot, appearing to relentlessly tighten itself around inexperienced drivers.

This is where we get to remember the moments when the Earl of March's octane fantasy land was visited by the triumvirate mentioned above.

We'll start with the Ferrari FXX K and the McLaren P1 GTR. Given the fact that these are full-blown racecars, the manner in which they one-up their street counterparts needs no explaining.

Ok, but what about the Aston?

Nevertheless, you might question the Aston Martin Vulcan's ability to outshine a LaF or a P1. Well, you shouldn't and that's because Aston Martin having the... courtesy to come up with an all-V12 machine in this gas-electric dominated era is enough to keep the excitment at a sky-high level.

Heck, you don't even have to take our word for it. Instead, we're inviting you to hit the "play" button below and notice how the 800 hp V12 of the Vulcan spits flames during the run, as if wishing to light up the hay bales on the side of the track. Now, since Astons are wide vehicles, we can't hold anything against one of them wishing to make more room on that track.

As for the noise Gaydon's track animal makes, let's just say the voice of the V12 is enough to reach the laziest of Goodwood FOS attenders.
