This is the Insanely-Gorgeous, Mental New Centenary Aston Martin

By Sam Gibbs on at

Meet the Aston Martin CC100 -- a celebration of 100 years of the iconic British sports car, and an update taking the low-slung lines of the 1950's Aston racers and bolting a 21st century 6L V12 monster in the front.

The concept is electronically locked to a blistering 180mph top speed, and will hit 60mph in a smidge over four seconds, apparently. It looks like a cross between an Aston and the Batmobile, and is severely lacking such British necessities as a roof; this is a racer, not your traditional Aston GT.

The car debuted in the hands of Sir Stirling Moss at the ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of Nürburgring race over the weekend, and while there are no current plans to make a full production run of the CC100, Aston might be persuaded to make a small run of the things. It's done so in the past with the likes of the One-77. [Aston Martin]
