British automaker Aston Martin has built its CC100 Speedster concept to celebrate its centenary. The car follows the style and design of Aston Martin’s 1950s DBR1 racers, but comes embedded with an up to date technology — a 6.0-liter V12 engine.

The key feature of the vehicle is that Aston is bringing in a completely new design theme for the rear.

The concept vehicle will will be capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 miles per hour in four seconds and will achieve a top speed of 180 mph with the help of a six-speed automated manual transmission.

The CC100 was designed and constructed at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in Gaydon, England and was designed by Aston design chief Marek Reichman along with the automaker’s exterior designer, Miles Nurnberger.

The vehicle is almost 4.5m long and 2m wide. The CC100 has no roof, and no windshield but its interior is luxurious for a racing-oriented concept.

The vehicle is entirely made of carbon-fiber as well as leather, glass buttons as you can seen in Aston Martin’s other production road cars.

At its debut at Nurburgring in Germany, the CC100 was driven by Aston Martin CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez.

According to him, the concept vehicle represents Aston Martin’s sporting heritage and design capability. Also, the next generation of Aston Martin sports cars will follow the design of the CC100.
