One-off Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept revealed

Aston Martin unveiled today the one-off CC100 Speedster concept at the Nürburgring Nordschleife during an ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of race. The CC100 also completed a lap around the extreme Nürburgring together with the iconic 1000km race-winning 1959 DBR1 with British racing legend Sir Stirling Moss at the wheel.

The CC100 Speedster Concept was designed and constructed in fewer than six months at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in Gaydon to celebrate company’s centenary.

The radical speedster was being driven by Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez. He said: “CC100 is the epitome of everything that is great about Aston Martin. It represents our fantastic sporting heritage, our exceptional design capability, our superb engineering know-how and, above all, our adventurous spirit!

“I have nicknamed it ‘DBR100’ because of its affinity to the great 1959 race-winning cars and, of course, our 100-year anniversary in 2013.

The 6.0-litre V12-powered concept car is almost four and a half metres long, and more than two metres wide with mirrors. The body and interior are crafted from carbon fibre.

The 6.0-litre V12 is linked to six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission, enabling it to accelerate from 0-62 mph in a little over four seconds, while the top speed is limited to 180 mph.
