Aston Martin CC100 Celebrates A Century of British Racing
In 100 years, Aston Martin has grown to become one of the most beautiful automakers to ever grace god's green Earth. From the awe-inspiring DB5 to the menacingly beautiful One-77, it's no surprise the the luxury auto group would load-up heavy with centenary glee via the CC100 Speedster Concept. A nod to the infamous DBR1, the Speedster lays claim to only six-months of development behind a set of welded shut doors. The design taking nearly all of its cues from classic roadsters of past, melded seamlessly to Aston Martin design of present. An open cockpit, a full racing guise and butterfly doors.
Power comes from the same naturally-aspirated 6.0L V12 found on nearly all of its vehicles, paired to a six-speed manually operated paddle shift gearbox. 0-60 mph is done up in about four seconds flat, and top speed finishes off at a proper 180 mph.
So any chance at production? We doubt it. Like any good anniversary edition vehicle we assume Aston might just take this back to Leeds and stare at it for a few days and then eventually keep it somewhere where it won't acquire too much dust. At least, that's what we would do.
