Whacking Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Centenary Edition

20 May 2013 by admin

 Aston Martin celebrates its centenary in 2013, a reason good enough to build a unique car which shows us the design directions of the future series models.Whacking Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Centenary Edition 2

Aston Martin CC100 Speedster is a new concept. There will be just one copy inspired by the DBR1 racing car which won the Le Mans race in 1959. Just as Lamborghini built Egoista for its 50th anniversary, Aston Martin creates this car in order to celebrate its year of birth.

Even if it’s a speedster, CC100 includes clues on the way the future series cars will be approached. The full-LED headlights will be soon introduced on the series models and are present, as well, on the CC100. The board toolkit is completely digital.

CC100 has the bodywork entirely made out of carbon fiber and an approximate length of 4.5 meters with a width of two meters.

Its kerb weight lies around 1.2 tons. Speedster is powered by a six-liter V12 engine whose power was not been communicated yet. It can accelerate the car from 0 to 100 km/h in “less than four seconds” and the top speed is electronically limited to 290 km/h. The engine was coupled to a six reports manual-robotized transmission.

The Aston Martin anniversary concept was developed and built in less than six months at the Gaydon factory in UK.
