The famous British car manufacturer Aston Martin is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and in honor of the audience was presented CC 100 concept that brings all the legendary features that have graced the company in London over the years. Aston Martin CC 100 is based in the famous Aston Martin DBR1 racer who won the 1959 Le Mans 24-hour race and announces some future lines that can be expected from the British giant in the near future. Although it is a concept, Aston Martin CC 100 is still able to reach 160 km / h, what the audience could see the recent presentation of the famous German Nürburgring, where CC 100 driven by the company president Ulrich Link accompanied by DBR1 slalom Stirling Moss. At first glance, CC 100 (name usually indicates Concept Car and the 100 year anniversary) is a modern copy of DBR1, but after a detailed sightseeing you can see the lines and the modern automobile company. This is especially true in the mask and headlights, and the whole chassis is borrowed from Vanquish.
