There’s no doubt about it, but retro-modernism is here to stay. Check out this amazing concept created by Aston Martin to celebrate their 100th anniversary! I can already imagine toupées and hair flying all over the place, as the Speedster zips down the road. One the plus side, once you get one, you will no longer need a blow dryer.
The CC100 Speedster was unveiled this past weekend at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring race in Germany. It packs a front-mounted 6.0-liter V12 engine. The rear wheel drive is coupled with an automated manual gearbox. To help keep weight down, the whole upper body is carbon fiber. All of this will make the Speedster go 0 to 60 MPH in 4 seconds, with a top speed of 180 MPH. Of course, at that speed, you’ll need to wear a helmet or some Steampunk-style goggles to keep the bugs from leaving dents in your face.
There’s still no word yet whether the Speedster will be available for sale, but I’m sure that if it ever is, it will be well out of my price range!
