british automaker aston martin is celebrating its centenary by introducing the ‘CC100 speedster concept’. looking back to the DBR1 for styling influence, the naturally aspirated 6.0-litre v12-powered concept car made its world debut by completing a lap of the famous nordschleife, at germany’s 24 hours of nürburgring race. the body and interior are crafted entirely from carbon fibre – designed and constructed in fewer than six months at aston martin’s global headquarters in gaydon. paired to a six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission with column-mounted paddle shifts, the ‘CC100’ reaches 0-100 km/h ( 62mph ) in 4.0 seconds, with a top speed of 291 km/h (180 mph).

  • I like the overall look of the car, but on the back it reminds me too much of a ferrari, maybe it´s because the rear lights of a aston martin are a very recognizable trademark and by not using them here (I understand where the inspiration comes from), the rear looks odd and doesnt look like a aston martin.
