One-off Aston Martin CC100 pulls into Jay Leno's garageby Drew Johnson
Watch Jay Leno get the rare chance to drive a concept.
Jay Leno's Garage is accustomed to landing high-dollar exotics and rare supercars, but something truly special rolled through the doors this week - a customer-owned Aston Martin CC100.
Aston Martin unveiled the CC100 earlier this year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed as a pure design concept, but it didn't stay that way for long. Aston Martin reportedly sold the CC100 on display at the Goodwood Festival to a collector and fielded an order from a second customer for a road-legal version of the show car.
Aston Martin never formally address those rumors, but those reports were confirmed this week when that very customer ordered CC100 showed up in Leno's garage.
Aston Martin didn't reveal the identity of the lucky buyer that was able to secure the only road-going CC100 (or the price tag), but the automaker confirmed the concept-turned-reality will be heading overseas.
As Leno demonstrates, the CC100 is a fully functioning road car that even includes safety features like pop-up safety hoops just behind the headrests. Of course the best part of the CC100 is its sleek body work, which, thanks to its carbon fiber construction, weighs nearly 1,000 pounds less than the Vantage on which the it is based. The 565 horsepower 6.0L V12 is a nice feature, too.
