The British based automaker Aston Martin has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the so-called CC100 Concept, over the past weekend.
According to the car manufacturer, the new Aston Martin CC100 Concept is actually a tribute paid to the 1959 DBR1 racer, which was a winner at Le Mans. The model in question is coming in a classic two-seater speedster configuration, with carbon fiber body work and AM styling. The CC100 Concept is approximately 4.5 meters long, 2 meters wide and it’s weighing less than 1,200 kg (2,645 lbs).
“CC100 is the epitome of everything that is great about Aston Martin. It represents our fantastic sporting heritage, our exceptional design capability, our superb engineering know-how and, above all, our adventurous spirit!”, said the Aston Martin CEO, Ulrich Bez.
The Aston Martin CC100 Concept is powered by a 6.0 liter V12 engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The model can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just over four seconds and it can reach a limited top speed of 290 km/h (180 mph). The Aston Martin CC100 Concept is a one-off unit but this didn’t stop the company selling it. The received price tag is estimated at between 770,000 USD and 1,540,000 USD.
