Like the Toyota GT 86 TRD, the IS TRD gets a new and much more aggressive front bumper (if you could get such a thing on the new IS), new, wider side skirts, a small rear spoiler, and a fantastic looking rear diffuser and two double exhausts.
Measuring in at four and a half meters long and two meters wide, the CC100 was designed and built in six months, both to celebrate Aston’s anniversary but also as a celebration of Aston’s racing history, with styling nods to the 1959 Nürburgring 1000 winning DBR1.
The parade will feature not only some of F1’s big historical names, such as Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart, John Surtees and Tony Brooks, but some of Clark’s famous cars as well, including his 1963 F1 World Championship winning Lotus 25, his 1965 Lotus 38 Indy 500 car, and his 1964 British Saloon Car Championship winning Lotus Cortina.
Having confirmed a deal between the two companies back in December, Aston Martin has confirmed the financial partnership with Investindustrial has been finalised.
As part of this deal, the fabled British firm (which is celebrating its centenary this year) will receive support from the Italian investment company, to help underpin Aston Martin’s “significant new product development programme”.
