Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept

<< Back to Robb Report, Luxury’s 25 Most Innovative Brands

Seldom can centenarians indulge in their centenaries, but with the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept (www.astonmartin.com), the British carmaker, which turned 100 this year, is doing just that. This one-off creation is at once futuristic and historic. It is cloaked in carbon fiber and powered by a naturally aspirated V-12 engine mated to a paddle-shifted 6-speed automated sequential manual transmission. The Speedster is intended to evoke the marque’s most famous competition car, the DBR1 that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1959.
