Aston Martin CC100 concept revs its engine [video]

At 2013 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este

Our good friend and WCF colleague Marchettino has recorded a video with the Aston Martin CC100 concept at the 2013 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.

We get a chance to listen to the soundtrack of the V12 6.0-liter engine producing 565 bhp (421 kW) which is enough to propel the car to 62 mph (100 km/h) in around four seconds and onto an electronically-capped top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h).

The concept was developed to celebrate Aston Martin's centenary and at the same time is a tribute to the Le Mans-winning 1959 DBR1. It has a carbon fiber body which enables the CC100 to weigh less than 2,645 lbs (1,200 kg). The two-seater speedster comes with a six-speed automated manual gearbox and has allegedly been sold for somewhere around 770,000 – 1,540,000 USD.
