21 May 2013 - IndianAutosBlog
The Aston Martin CC100 (Concept Car 100 years) is that “very special concept” which was unveiled yesterday at Nürburgring. The CC100 was driven around the famous ‘Green Hell’ by the firm’s CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez, accompanied by Sir Stirling Moss in a 1959 DBR1.
An elated Ulrich Bez stated, “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!”
The car’s body and interior are made of carbon fibre. Though Aston Martin didn’t release the weight of the car, it is claimed that the it is more than 400kg lighter than the V12 Vantage, i.e. about 1,200 kg.
Power comes from the AM11 naturally aspirated 6.0 litre V12 petrol engine which is mated to a six speed automated sequential manual gearbox. The power output was not made public but the car does 0-100 kmph sprint in just over 4 seconds and has a top whack of 290 kmph.
