Celebrating 100 Years with the CC100 Speedster, Aston Martin’s new concept packs a punch with 565-hp and style for miles.
Aston Martin’s latest concept car, the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster, marks 100 years of superior design and performance. The CC100 looks back to the 1959 DBR1, clear when seen side by side. The CC100 cuts a mean figure, with futuristic design features creating a very interesting topless car design. The CC100 was revealed at the ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of Nurburgring race after being designed and created in less than six months. Driven by Aston Martin CEO Ulrich Bez, the CC100 was debuted alongside the iconic DBR1.

The new CC100 is an aggressive looking speedster built solely for the tracks. Harboring a 5.9L V-12 engine and carbon-fiber body, the CC100 has been guessed at a good 565 horsepower, though Aston Martin isn’t telling just yet. The car’s top speed is reportedly 180 mph. While the CC100 is still in its early stages, there is little Aston Martin doesn’t produce to some magnitude, and we will wait patiently to find out if a roadster version is in the works. Albeit with a windshield and full-panel doors. While I can’t say Aston Martin went back to the basics with the new CC100, they definitely went reminiscing and revamped their original classic.
