ASTON MARTIN CC100 SPEEDSTER CONCEPT

In its centenary year, Aston Martin has stepped up with a new concept car called the CC100 Speedster Concept.

It's a bold new design that takes the brand in an interesting new direction, while simultaneously looking back at the DBR1 - a car that gave Aston Martin its greatest sporting triumph on the track.

Powered by the AM11 6.0-liter V12 engine and mated to a six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission, the concept made its world debut ay the famous Nordschleife, making a lap of the 14-mile circuit before the ADAC Zurich 24 Hours race.

Designed and constructed in less than six months at Aston's HQ in Gaydon, England, the idea was to create an iconic speedster concept that nods to the Le Mans- and Nürburgring-winning cars of 1959.

Measuring almost 15ft nose-to-tail, and more than 6ft wide (including mirrors), the Speedster body and interior were crafted from carbon fiber for both its weight and strength advantages, as well as to speed up to process over a traditional aluminum body construction.
