The Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept recently made its debut at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring where CEO Dr Ulrich Bez was driving it. Behind him was the 1959 Nürburgring 1000 km-winning DBR1 driven by the original driver Sir Stirling Moss. The Villa d’Este 2013 is the second public event where the CC 100 Speedster has made its debut.
Thankfully, our friend Matteo of Italiansupercar.net attended the event and provided us with these shots. It is powered by the new AM11 engine-a 6.0 liter V12 engine that does a limited top speed of 180mph and a 0-100km/h in less than 5 seconds. It is mated to a six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission, controlled via steering column-mounted paddle shifts.
The Aston Martin CC 100 Speedster was created in less than six months at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in Gaydon. The project was developed alongside key supplier Multimatic Inc, under the leadership of Special Projects and Motorsport Director David King, Design Director Marek Reichman and the brand’s Chief Exterior Designer Miles Nurnberger.
