Aston Martin has apparently already sold the limited-run DBR1-inspired CC100 concept which was built to celebrate the company's centenary.
The car that we say during the Goodwood Festival of Speed was bought by a collector who was willing to pay around 500,000 GBP (approximately 770,000 USD or 580,000 EUR). The second and last unit has been commissioned by another customer who is now waiting for his car to be built, with delivery expected later this year.
While the first CC100 will be part of a collection and won't be actually used, the second car will be seen on public roads once it's done. Both cars have the same V12 6.0-liter engine connected to a six-speed automated manual gearbox. 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) should take around 4 seconds before reaching an electronically-limited top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h).
The Aston Martin CC100 concept has a carbon fiber bodywork which has reduced weight to less than 2,645 lbs (1,200 kg). It pays tribute to the 1959 DBR1 racer and adopts a two-seat speedster configuration but with modern Aston Martin influences.
