But that's not the end of it. You also specify that you want racing legend Stirling Moss to drive an iconic car from Aston Martin's illustrious past, the race-winning 1959 DBR1. Together, it will be the strongest statement you can make about your company's centennial. Enter the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept - a car that reflects Aston Martin's 100 year heritage and where the company's design direction is headed in the near future.
The CC100 Speedster takes its design inspiration from Aston Martin's Le Mans and Nürburgring-winning cars from half a century ago as homage to the brand. Standing at 4.5 meters long and just about 2.0 meters wide, including the side mirrors, it shows off how infinitely flexible nature of the brand's trademark Vertical Horizontal engineering philosophy.
Being Aston Martin, it's equipped with latest AM11 naturally-aspirated 6.0L V12 petrol engine matched to a six-speed automatic clutch sequential manual transmission. It makes the CC100 go from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds and limit to 290 km/h to give the impression of civility.
The CC100 Speedster Concept took shape with the help of Canadian-based company named Multimatic that specializes in and builds low volume vehicles. They in turn build the Speedster Concept's carbon fiber chassis, body, and interior, and all the tooling required.
"The future of Aston Martin is, very clearly, more exciting now than perhaps at any time in its history and I'm looking forward to seeing the excitement and anticipation that CC100 creates among Aston Martin owners and enthusiasts worldwide," exclaimed Aston Martin CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez.
What better way to celebrate one's centennial indeed.
