NEWS: Aston Martin celebrates 100

Aston Martin's century!

Aston Martin is marking 100 years of motoring history and to celebrate they have produced the beautifully stunning CC100 speedster.  But don't hold your breath, I don't think we'll be getting this as a slot car any time soon..

This from Aston: 'A unique year produces a unique and visionary car. Created as a stunning celebration of Aston Martin’s century of sports car excellence we reveal ‘CC100’, a concept reflecting the sporting heritage and exceptional design capability woven throughout 100 years of Aston Martin history.'

'CC100 looks back to a proud past and forward to an exciting future. A clear affinity with the legendary 1959 Le Mans and Nürburgring winning race car DBR1 can be seen in the design, with forward-looking features shaped from the same advanced materials and expert engineering used throughout our contemporary model range.'

'Designed and constructed in less than six months, the CC100 represents a shining example of the Aston Martin flexibility. Coupling creative freedom with cutting-edge technology to consistently deliver the purity of vision set out by our design team.'
  "CC100 is the epitome of everything that is great about Aston Martin. Fantastic heritage, exceptional design, superb engineering and an adventurous spirit." - Aston Martin CEO - Dr Ulrich Bez
  If you're interested to see how Aston designed and made the CC100 then you're in luck, they just happened to make a movie of it which is fascinating to watch - you have to love the clay work!
