Aston Martin Throws Out the Rules to Build the Fastest, Biggest Muscle Car Ever

It's so fast you can't legally drive it on the street. It's so expensive only a select few will be able to afford the price tag. It's so rare that only a lucky few will acquire one of the 20 produced. It's the Aston Martin Vulcan, and it's out of this world.

Glenn recently saw a test drive on the Amazon Prime original TV show The Grand Tour.

"I'm telling you, this car is violent . . . they're driving everything, you know? They're dropping cars out of airplanes, and then they land and they drive them away at 200 miles an hour or whatever. They show him driving it, and he can't drive it like the test drivers can. He's like, This car scares the hell out of me. This car is freaking me out! It's amazing," Glenn said Friday on his radio program.

The 2016 Aston Martin Vulcan goes for around a cool $2 million. Check out the video below to see what it can do.

Listen to this segment, beginning at mark 36:00, from The Glenn Beck Program:

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: We have to talk about the new Vulcan, the new car by Aston Martin. This is one of the greatest -- this is freedom. This is one of the greatest cars ever built.

JEFFY: I need a new car.

GLENN: This one is a little pricey. It's $1.8 million.

STU: You can afford that, Jeffy.

GLENN: So Aston Martin said, "We want to build the fastest car we can build. We want to build the biggest muscle performance car ever, but we don't want to build a race car, because then it has to have special -- you know, if you build a formula one car, then it has to have special tires and special limitations. And the engine has to be built a certain way. And then they said, "You know what, let's go a step further. I don't even want to build it for the street. I don't want to build a legal car that you can drive around. We want to build the fastest car we can build."

(laughter)

So this is the car -- not of the future, but this is the car of the past. If there were no regulations, what could we really build?

JEFFY: Build moonshiner cars.

GLENN: Right.

So there's only 20 of these things being built, and I think they come with their own like Mack truck. You know, their own trailer. Because you can't drive it anywhere. You can only drive it on a track by yourself.

JEFFY: Legally.

GLENN: Legally. Yeah. Yeah.

This thing is crazy. It is crazy.

PAT: How fast does it go?

GLENN: I don't even know. I don't even know.

STU: They don't know yet. I was just reading an article about it --

GLENN: I've seen a test-drive. Have you heard of this show? What is it? GT on -- is it Amazon or Netflix? It's the three English guys who are very, very funny.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And they're going out -- so episode two has this guy -- has this car. And they test-drive it. And it is -- I'm telling you, this car is violent. He's like, "This is -- he's -- I mean, they're driving everything. You know, they're dropping cars out of airplanes, and then they land -- and they drive them away at three -- you know, 200 miles an hour or whatever.

STU: It's not Top Gear?

GLENN: No. Uh-uh. It's GT.

This guy -- this guy is driving it. They show him driving it. And he can't drive it like the test-drivers can. So he drives it for four hours to try to get used to it. And he's like, "This car scares the hell out of me." He's driving it, and he's like, "This car is freaking me out!" It's amazing. It's called the Vulcan by Aston Martin.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
