The future of the company may be uncertain but that hasn’t stopped Aston Martin from splashing out on a 100th birthday present for itself.
Dubbed the CC100 Speedster Concept, the striking track-ready two-seater both recognises the British brand’s past and gives hints at its future design direction.
The CC100 shares design cues from one of Aston Martin’s most famous racing cars, the DBR1. The car is primarily made from carbon fibre with Aston's long-serving 6.0-litre V12 engine under the long bonnet.
The engine is paired with a racing-style six-speed sequential manual transmission that helps launch the CC100 from 0-100km/h in “a little over four seconds” according to Aston Martin. Top speed is limited to 290km/h.
