How many cars have you driven that are electronically limited to a top speed of 290km/h?
This is the only Aston Martin CC100 centenary commemorative special in existence (although rumour has it two more will be built for very, very wealthy clients), so you'll understand that very few people actually get to drive this hand-built beauty.
0-100 in LESS THAN FOUR SECONDS
The more so as it has a 415kW, six-litre V12 in an all-carbon fibre monocoque bodyshell, weighs just 1200kg without fuel and rockets to 100km/h in less than four seconds; without the limiter it would probably top out at well over 322km/h (200 mph in the old language).
Which makes us even more jealous as American talk-show host and petrolhead of note Jay Leno - who has more connection than a telephone exchange - puts foot in this video. Enjoy.
