Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept

One hundred years have been gone since the British manufacturer was founded by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. The Brand developed their own present to commemorate this event and also the Stirling Moss’ success at the 1959 Nürburgring 1000km in a DBR1. Their gift is the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept.

The Aston Martin CC100 will run a complete lap at Germany’s ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of Nurburgring race along with the greatest sporting triumph car, the DBR1. It is the best way to see the Aston Martin evolution and two representative entities. The CC100 version it is fitted with a 6.0-litre V12 naturally aspirated gasoline engine and matted 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) that is electronically limited. The body kit is manufactured from carbon fiber provided by low volume specialists Multimatic. This assures the CC100 concept a total mass of less than 1,200 kg (2,645 lbs). An interesting and creditable thing is the fact that the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster was designed and constructed in fewer than six months at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in Gaydon.

The two-seat speedster is measuring almost 4.5 meters long and more than 2 meters wide (including the mirrors). Only the concept units will be manufactured, one to celebrate the Aston Martin company 100th  anniversary and one for the Stirling Moss’ success at the 1959 Nürburgring 1000 km race. Some sources mentioned that one version is already sold for a price between 770,000 USD and 1,540,000 USD.
