The Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept was on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013. One of just two, both examples are spoken for already, yet it was good to see it head up the hill before deliveries took place!
The Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept features the new AM11 engine. Its is a 6.0 liter V12 engine that does a limited top speed of 180mph and 0-100km/h in less than 5 seconds. It is fitted with a six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission, controlled via steering column-mounted paddle shifts.
The Speedster pays homage to Aston Martin’s historic Le Mans winning DBR1 sports car. The car competed in 18 races and won 8 of them thanks to the 2.5 litre and 2.9 litre straight six engine at the time. The CC100 Concept features the same iconic styling. Even the colour, green with a yellow accent, harks back to the classic racer.
Both cars will not be road legal so owners will only get to drive their cars on the race track. For more details on the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept, visit our earlier article.
