Concept Flashback – 2013 Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Was Dubbed DBR100 In Development


The amazing CC100 Speedster makes the Jaguar Project 7 look like a silly branded parka.

A complete conversion from the softtop Vantage into the CC100 sees completely unique carbon-fiber bodywork all around, mini door-tops with open and exposed airflow elements at hip-height for both passengers, and a fantastic shrouded cabin.

A complete lack of windshield glass means helmets would definitely need chinstraps on tight for high-speed driving, but the overall effect on the CC100’s style makes it worthwhile.

Double head-height roll spikes are a stylistic delight, and even include extra roll-over protection in the form of ram-actuated extra roll hoops for true track safety.

The nose and tail are fresh takes on the Aston theme. Where we are most likely to see these styles is in the floating front wing and detached hood section. This open and exposed design element is a favorite of designer Marek Reichmann — and features on the 2015 DP100 concept as well.
