Avro Type 732

https://www.key.aero/article/paving-way

"There were many proposed developments of the Victor and Vulcan, including two supersonic derivatives, but neither came close to being built. The Avro 732 of 1956 was to have been powered by eight de Havilland Gyron Juniors, four in pairs side-byside in the fuselage and the others in pairs in underwing nacelles. Other than its delta wing concept, it owed little to the Vulcan."

Wikipedia
"The Avro 732 was a 1956 proposal for a supersonic development of the Vulcan and would have been powered by 8 de Havilland Gyron Junior engines. Unlike the proposed Avro 721 low-level bomber of 1952 or the Avro 730 supersonic stainless steel canard bomber dating from 1954 (cancelled in 1957 before completion of the prototype), the Type 732 showed its Vulcan heritage."
