100 is a big numberAnd Aston doesn't disappoint
Aston Martin unveiled its CC100 concept race car ahead of schedule on May 19th.
Built to commemorate the company’s 100th anniversary, the CC100 encompasses design elements from the past with the DBR1 racecar and makes room for the future with design elements that hint at something completely new. The combination of past, present and future are evident in the car’s simplistic lines and the use of leather and carbon fiber on the interior.
“CC100 is the epitome of everything that is great about Aston Martin. It represents our fantastic sporting heritage, our exceptional design capability, our superb engineering know-how and, above all, our adventurous spirit,” said CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez who will be lapping the 6L V12 2-seater around the Nordschleife track later this month, followed by a 1959 DBR1 driven by Sir Stirling Moss.
“But this car is more, even, than a simple ‘birthday present’ to ourselves: it shows that the soul of Aston Martin – the thing that differentiates us from all the other car makers out there – is as powerful as ever…” Bez added.
