Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept
Automaker Aston Martin revisits its 100 years of history and looks to the future with its new CC100 Speedster concept. Deriving its inspiration from the DBR1, the racer that brought home the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1959, the body of the car is a nod to its past while the materials that compose it are decidedly next-generation. Along with the interior, the body is crafted out of carbon fiber supplied by Multimatic, which was contracted by Aston Marton due to their expertise with low volume materials. Powered by a 6.0-litre V12 engine, the car made its debut yesterday, completing a lap at Germany’s 24 Hours of Nürburgring race. The car is touted as doing 0-62 mph in a little over four seconds and topping out at 180mph.
