To celebrate 100 years of Aston Martin, the car company has unveiled the CC100 concept speedster, two weeks after our introduction to the Lamborghini Egoista.

It looks strangely like something Adam West's Batman might drive in 2013, but Aston Martin's 100th anniversary CC100 speedster was not designed with superheroes in mind, camp or otherwise. Instead, the yellow-and-blue-grey speedster is a homage to the company's heritage as a manufacturer of luxury sports cars.

The design is based on the 1959 Le Mans and Nürburgring-winning DBR1, with materials and design elements that look to the future, according to the company. Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez said, "CC100 is the epitome of everything that is great about Aston Martin. Fantastic heritage, exceptional design, superb engineering and an adventurous spirit."

With no cover, it would certainly not be of any use as a day-to-day car — but as it was designed as and remains a concept, we don't think Batman would have to worry about getting his 'do mussed.
