The Aston Martin CC100 Speedster concept is here, and she's a beauty. A V12-powered birthday present with a historic lineage and an advanced, hand-built carbon fiber body.
Created to celebrate the company's centennial and built on the same "VH" platform as the rest of the Aston lineup, the CC100 is powered by a V12 up front coupled to a flappy-paddle gearbox. But that's not the best bit – just look at it.
It is the polar opposite of the Lamborghini Egoista concept released last week to celebrate the Italian company's 50th anniversary. Where that car was sharp and angular, the CC100 is smooth, sleek, and flowing. Its husky green-gray paint contrasts perfectly with the yellow accents, its wing mirrors perfectly perch out on elegant stalks. Its haunches rear up powerfully behind that long, sloping hood. Just look at that cut-out right next to the seats.
It's amazing, especially considering it was designed and built in less than six months. And get this, it even seats two. It'll be driven around the Nürburgring 24 in the capable hands of AM CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez, who drove in last year's N24 race.
What do you think, better or worse than the Lambo?
