This weekend, at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring, Aston Martin's hydrogen-powered Rapide pace car won't be the only new British wonder that's wowing the crowds. The company is planning to unveil the Vantage V12-based CC100 race car this weekend, which sounds fantastic, as it's a hardcore version of Aston's biggest engine in Aston's smallest car. Only two CC100s will be built, and neither will have a roof or doors, just like the legendary DBR1 that Sir. Stirling Moss drove to victory at the Nurburgring in 1959. It should cost somewhere between $500,000 and $2,000,000.

Later this summer, at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, the legendary marque will also unveil two new cars. While there has been no chatter about what they could be, we can only assume, given the recently updated DB9 and brand new Vanquish, that the now aged Vantage is up for a re-do.
