Aston Martin CC100 Speedster already sold out

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 26, 2013

Back in May, Aston Martin unveiled the CC100 Speedster Concept, a vehicle that pays tribute to the iconic DBR1 race car or the car that won the 1000 km race when it was driven by Sir Stirling Moss. Many of us were impressed by the design of the CC100 Speedster but it appears that many people with lots of money felt the same way. As a result, Aston Martin decided to build 2 CC100 Speedsters and sell them for 500,000 pounds each.

If the first CC100 Speedster is destined for a collection, the second one will get a single type approval by its owner, in order to be driven on public roads.

For those who don’t know, Aston Martin installed the 6.0-liter V12 engine on the CC100, same engine found on the DBS or the V12 Vantage S. Using a six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission, the CC100 Speedster is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in a little over 4 seconds and has a top speed of 290 km/h or 180 mph.
