Two new concepts will also debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

Aston Martin CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez has announced plans to introduce two new models at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring.

Speaking to Autocar, Bez said the first model will be called the CC100 and will be based on the V12 Vantage. The executive went on to say the car will be influenced by DBR1 and will have an exposed cockpit as it won't be equipped with doors or a roof.

Little else is known about the model, but Bez said production will be limited to two units - one to celebrate the company's 100th anniversary and another to commemorate Stirling Moss’ win at the 1959 Nürburgring 1000km in a DBR1.

Pricing remains a mystery but it is expected to slot somewhere between the £330,000 V12 Zagato and the £1.4 million One-77.

The company will also introduce a Rapide race car with a hydrogen hybrid engine that develops 500 bhp (373 kW). Able to run on petrol or hydrogen, the engine will help the model to attempt to set the "first-ever race-pace zero emissions lap."

Bez also confirmed Aston Martin will unveil two new concepts at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. There's no word on what they are but Bez said they will preview production models that will be launched by the end of the year.
