Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept
A Sport car that casts quite an eye for the two seater of half a century ago. In a word, a Speedster. The Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept is a prototype two seater built in homage to the cars at the end of 50 years, helped to confirm the sporty image of the brand in the round of Gaydon thanks to sporting successes won on the slopes of the World Championship sports cars. The Aston Martin CC100 Speedster is entirely developed at Gaydon under the leadership of King David and built as a tribute to the first 100 years of the brand’s history and tells in its own shape the stylistic era of the two seater racing Aston Martin.

Stylistic development which is due to the Design Manager in Gaydon, Mark Reichman, with whom Miles Nurnberger collaborated took as its inspiration the DBR1 for the long bonnet, the arrangement of the two seats almost at the differential, the two aerodynamic parts placed behind the head restraints, the showy moldings on the front wings that slide up to the gates and here they contribute to enclose a transparent window. A formula here proposed in a modern way with the use of lightweight and resistant materials such as the monocoque carbon fiber.

Of note is the absence of the windscreen replaced by a thin eyelid with aerodynamic functions. Little to say for setting the car deliberately left bare by virtue of the search to the maximum weight savings, dominated by the two bucket seats and dashboard and center console characterized by carbon.

Under the hood the CC100 Speedster Concept is equipped with the classic V12 6 liter, naturally aspirated inherited from the DB9 and Rapide S. This unit which represents the latest evolution in chronological order of the family AM11 develops 558 hp and CC100 Speedster Concept is paired with a 6 speed automatic gearbox with sequential control through the two paddles located behind the steering wheel. These performances from Aston Martin confirm the character GT unvarnished for this car. Top speed is 290 km / h and acceleration from 0 – 100 km / h in just 4 seconds.
