No, you won’t be able to get your hands on one, because the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept is very much a one-off signature, meant to celebrate the British brand’s 100 years of existence in exemplary fashion.

The 6.0 litre V12-powered vehicle made its premiere at the ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of Nürburgring race over the weekend, completing a lap of the Nordschleife together with the 1,000km race-winning 1959 DBR1, with British racing legend Sir Stirling Moss at the wheel.

Designed and constructed in fewer than six months at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in Gaydon, the finished look of the two-seater CC100 is very much a nod to the Le Mans- and Nürburgring-winning cars of 1959, with plenty of modern engineering married to the homage.

Its body and interior is crafted from carbon fibre, tooled and provided by low volume specialists Multimatic, and the CC100 is powered by the latest generation AM11 naturally-aspirated V12, mated to a six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission, controlled via steering column-mounted paddle shifts.

Performance figures for the CC100 include a 0-100 km/h time of just a little over four seconds, while the top speed is limited to 290 km/h.
