The prestigious Dubai Motor Show 2013 may have just closed its doors to the public but during the event, Aston Martin brought some of its most impressive vehicles to put on display and when compared to the various crazy creations which debuted at this year’s event, the Aston Martin’s look extremely elegant.
Of the Aston Martin’s in attendance, the most impressive was definitely the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept which had its Middle Eastern debut at the show. Just two units of the CC100 Speedster Concept are being built with both already sold. This particular CC100 Speedster Concept is believed to be the exact same vehicle recently driven by Jay Leno.
As a reminder, the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept features the new AM11 engine. It 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.
