The Little Car Company, Aston Martin and EON Productions have launched a No Time To Die special edition of the iconic DB5, known the world over as the ultimate Bond car. The Aston Martin DB5 Junior is, like the original, a gadget-laden collector’s item.
Built at a two-thirds scale the Junior comes with a fully electric powertrain.
With an 80-mile max range the convertible offers seating for an adult and child side by side, But, Mum and Dad, keep an eye for those gadgets…
We’re talking a quick-release steering wheel for a speedy entry and exit for the driver, plus a hidden switch panel in the passenger door. At the push of a button, the headlights drop to reveal a twin set of simulated Gatling guns, complete with imitation barrel blasts and flashes.
There is a special ‘skid mode’ for when the Mini James Bond is caught in a tight spot – presumably because they haven’t done their homework.
As you would expect, a smoke screen will aid a successful getaway.
Ben Hedley, CEO of The Little Car Company, said: “Regarded as the most famous car in cinematic history, the gadget-laden Aston Martin DB5 awed audiences around the world over fifty years ago. Now, that story continues. As part of an exclusive partnership with EON Productions and Aston Martin, we have had the opportunity to create something truly unique for James Bond fans and collectors. We can’t wait to see the adventures these cars take with their owners.”
Bond fans worldwide will have to get their cheque books out PDQ because only 125 of the cars are being built.
And the price? For a gorgeous car for your favourite kid? A cool £90,000, plus taxes. That might leave you shaken and stirred!
