If you didn’t know that this year marks the centenary of Aston Martin, you probably have a lot of company. The nameplate hasn’t organized concours d’elegance on each continent, or released centennial edition packages consisting of special paint schemes and sequentially-numbered dashboard plaques for any of its regular production models. The occasion also hasn’t gotten nearly as much ink in the buff books (at least that we have seen) as some other automotive anniversaries – i.e. the Porsche 911’s 50th birthday – have.
However, we’re willing to bet only the most ripped of the world’s van Winkles will remain in the dark about this milestone anniversary once they’ve gazed upon Aston Martin’s stunning present to itself. This present is called the CC100 Speedster Concept and, if you ask us, it beats the snot out of any store’s or company’s gift card.
