The Little Car Company Aston Martin DB5 Junior is back from the Q Branch
The Little Car Company DB5 Junior already oozed appeal, but now to celebrate the release of No Time to Die, 125 of the diminutive sports cars will be given the Bond treatment, making it perhaps the ultimate collector’s item for 007 fans worldwide. Boasting more power than even the DB5 Junior Vantage, the DB5 Junior No Time to Die Edition has been given Brembo disc brakes and Bilstein dampers and coilover springs to make sure his two-thirds scale marvel can handle the extra performance.
However, it would hardly be fitting for an international super spy if it didn’t feature any gadgets, and this Bond-ified DB5 Junior boasts a full arsenal, including the all-important headlight-mounted Gatling guns with imitation barrel blasts and flashes (this is intended for both kids and adults, after all). That’s not all though, because in addition to a “skid mode” and unique digital numberplate, the DB5 Junior No Time to Die Edition can also produce a smoke screen to aid in the evasion of any henchmen on your tail. All these gadgets are operated by individual controls in a hidden switch panel in the passenger door, very cool indeed.
It doesn’t come cheap though, as this 3/4 scale DB5 costs as much as a second hand full-sized Aston Martin at £90,000. Although the DB5 Junior isn’t road legal, as an authentic Aston Martin model, every owner will receive automatic membership of the respected Aston Martin Owners Club, as you’d hope after dropping that much cash on a car, whatever the size. However, when you consider that the full-sized Goldfinger DB5 Continuation costs £2.75 million, it doesn’t seem like such a bad deal after all. Orders will be on a first come, first serve basis, so if you want to relive your Bond fantasies with your favourite rugrat, then act fast!
