To celebrate 100 years of Aston Martin, the car company has unveiled the CC100 concept, which can hit 62 miles per hour in just 4 seconds. Hop in -- if you dare.
Two weeks after our introduction to the Lamborghini Egoista, Aston Martin is celebrating 100 years by unveiling the CC100 concept car. With Aston Martin's naturally aspirated V12 engine purring inside, the CC100 can accelerate from stationary to 62 miles per hour in just 4 seconds. The car has a top speed of 180 miles per hour.
The design is based on the 1959 Le Mans and Nurburgring-winning DBR1, with materials and design elements that look to the future, according to the company.
Inside the cockpit, the racing seats are upholstered in Bridge of Weird leather, and fitted with full safety harness. Aston Martin's classic glass control buttons and ECU starter sit on the driver's side.
The car's gearbox is fitted with a six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission, and controlled via steering-column-mounted paddles, developed in the company's GT race program.
