Aston Martin marks its 100th anniversary this year, and to celebrate this milestone the automaker has unveiled the CC100 speedster concept. This tribute to Aston Martin’s sports cars looks back to the legendary 1959 Le Mans and Nürburgring-winning race car DBR1 while simultaneously incorporating advanced materials and engineering.
The CC100 was revealed to the world at the ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of Nürburgring race, where it was driven by Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez. Alongside the CC100 was the historic DBR1, the same car that completed the 1000km of Nürburgring in 1959. Indeed, even the same driver, Sir Stirling Moss, was behind the wheel for this historic occasion. The CC100 lead a 100-car lap of the Nurburgring Nordschleife to celebrate Aston Martin’s centenary year. Also in the parade was DB3S, DB5, One-77 and ninety-five Aston Martins from throughout the automaker’s history.
