When creating the Aston Martin CC100, Aston Martin was under exceptional pressure. Not only did it have to create a tribute car worthy of the British firm’s 100th anniversary, but it had to be fully built and fully operational in just 6 months.
As we know, the Aston Martin CC100 was produced in record time and recently made its world debut at the Nurburgring 24 Hours 2013 and the following video has just been released showcasing the design and creation of this extremely unique speedster.
If you can stand the simply horrible quality of the following video, it’s a clip well worth a watch.
As a reminder, the Aston Martin CC100 is powered by Aston Martin’s new AM11 engine which is a 6.0-liter V12 unit capable of launching the stunning car to 62mph in less than 5 seconds and onto a top speed of 180mph.
Upon its debut, Aston Martin CEO Ulrich Bez had the following to say about the Aston Martin CC100, “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!
“I have nicknamed it ‘DBR100’ because of its affinity to the great 1959 race-winning cars and, of course, our 100-year anniversary in 2013.
“But this car is more, even, than a simple ‘birthday present’ to ourselves: it shows that the soul of Aston Martin – the thing that differentiates us from all the other car makers out there – is as powerful as ever and I very much hope that everyone who catches a glimpse of it at the Nürburgring today enjoys seeing it.”
