Aston Martin CC100 Is Now Sold Out

If there is a limited-edition vehicle that people with deep pockets should taken notice of, Aston Martin’s DBR1-inspired CC100 Speedster is likely it.

Unfortunately, if you were late to the party, you won’t be able to get your hands on one. The concept, which Aston built to celebrate the British automaker’s 100th anniversary, has now been scooped up by what we can only imagine to be a financially well off collector. After all, he paid around $770,000 for the chance to own the car so he clearly has enough money left on his bank account to absorb that kind of monetary hit.

According to Autocar, there will be a second CC1000 to be built, but like the first model, that one’s already accounted for after Aston Martin was commissioned to build it. Aston Martin’s already building that car and the lucky fella who paid an equal premium for it is expected to take delivery of a literal two-of-a-kind vehicle later this year.

We don’t know about you, but if we had the finances to make that kind of splurge, we wouldn’t hesitate in following the footsteps of these two men.

Rarely do you chance upon a concept as cool and as riveting as the CC100 and the chance of owning one is something our bank accounts would have taken a hit for without even blinking.

That is if our accounts were fat enough to do so.
