The gallery presented in this post is salacious automotive sensuality. This Aston Martin CC100 is painfully attractive. The Aston Martin CC100 was built as a tribute to Aston Martin’s 100 years in motor racing. The entire vehicle was created in less than six months.”The need to create a truly fitting tribute to 100 years of the Aston Martin brand has brought out the creativity and talent that makes Aston Martin such an exceptional luxury sports car maker.” Aston Martin Director of Design, Marek Reichman
Specifics are slim, but Aston Martin says it has the company’s normally aspirated V12 hooked up to a six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission. I’m guessing the V12 is a 5.9-liter with an output of 510 horsepower like the Vantage. The Aston Martin CC100 is supposed to go from 0 to 62 mph in four seconds and has a limited top speed of 180 mph.
The Aston Martin measures about four and a half meters in length, over two meters wide, which includes the mirrors, the body and interior of the Aston Martin CC100 is fashioned out of carbon fiber.
“CC100 is the epitome of everything that is great about Aston Martin. Fantastic heritage, exceptional design, superb engineering and an adventurous spirit.” – – Aston Martin CEO, Dr Ulrich Bez
The Aston Martin CC100 appears to be a one-off special edition vehicle. No plans for production have been announced. Still, it was pretty cool the way Aston Martin displayed the Aston Martin CC100: “Revealed to the world at the ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of Nürburgring race, CC100 was driven on its debut by Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez. Alongside him on this unique celebratory lap of the iconic Nordschleife was DBR1, the same car that completed the 1000km of Nürburgring in 1959, crewed by the same man – Sir Stirling Moss.
CC100 – the ultimate expression of Aston Martin’s first century.” – – Aston Martin Media
