One hundred years have been gone since the British Aston Martin car manufacturer was founded by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. This was happening on the 19th May 1913.The brand offered a self present to commemorate this event. Their gift is the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept. And there couldn’t exist a better present.
Designed especially to mark the centenary, the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept has been spotted at the Goodwood Festival of Speed that is taking place these days. It was created in about a half of year at the company’s setting in Gaydon, U.K. The two-seat speedster is measuring almost 4.5 meters long and more than 2 meters wide (including the mirrors). And only two units have been build, one to celebrate the Aston Martin company 100th anniversary and one for the Stirling Moss’ success at the 1959 Nürburgring 1000 km race.
The Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept is powered by a 6.0-litre V12 naturally aspirated gasoline engine which is linked to a 6-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission. It runs from stand to 62 mph (100 km/h) in a little over four seconds before reaching a top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h) which is electronically limited.
