Aston Martin has brought the brand new CC100 Speedster Concept to the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where the model has made its local premiere.
The Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept has been officially unveiled during the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, back in July, but time has come for the impressive one-off sports car to make its over-seas debut, during the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The model in question managed to attract a lot of curious eyes but, unlike the Goodwood event, where the CC100 Speedster Concept was seen in action, the vehicle remained parked on the grass, behind a big white chain.
The Speedster, which has been developed by Miles Nurnberger, the Chief Exterior Designer, by David King, form Special Projects and Motorsport, and by Marek Reichman, the Design Director, is paying tribute to the Le Mans DBR1 Aston Martin racer, which competed in 18 races and won 8, thanks to its 2.5L and 2.9K straight six-cylinder engines at the time. The model in question is powered by a 6.0L V12 unit, which is allowing it to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 180 mph. The unit is mated to a six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission.
