British automaker Aston Martin is celebrating its centenary by introducing the ‘CC100 speedster concept’. Looking back to the DBR1 for styling influence, the naturally aspirated 6.0-litre v12-powered concept car made its world debut by completing a lap of the famous nordschleife, at germany’s 24 hours of nürburgring race. The body and interior are crafted entirely from carbon fibre – designed and constructed in fewer than six months at aston martin’s global headquarters in gaydon. Paired to a six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission with column-mounted paddle shifts, the ‘CC100′ reaches 0-100 km/h ( 62mph ) in 4.0 seconds, with a top speed of 291 km/h (180 mph).
