Description

Arguably the most famous car in the world, the iconic DB5 has firmly secured its place in automotive history. Coveted by car enthusiasts around the world, DB5 ownership has historically been the preserve of the lucky few. In 2020, more than 50 years on from its initial launch, the DB5 has been reimagined for the modern era.

Hand-crafted to allow the love of driving to be shared across generations, the Aston Martin DB5 Junior will be built to 66% scale of the original and will feature a rear-wheel-drive, fully electric powertrain and multiple driving modes. Just like the original, only 1,059 of the models will be made, providing a rare opportunity for fans of the marque to own a piece of history.

As an official Aston Martin model, the DB5 Junior will pay homage to the rich history of the brand. Each of the limited-edition vehicles produced will feature classic Aston Martin badges, Silver Birch paintwork, Smiths instruments, and individually numbered chassis plates. In tribute to Aston Martin’s more recent technological advances, the DB5 Junior will include swappable lithium-ion battery packs and regenerative braking.

The DB5 Junior has all of the iconic details you would expect from an Aston Martin DB5, including:

Authentic Aston Martin badges consistent with the original cars
Replicated Smiths instruments, including original DB5 clock
A full leather interior in a range of colours
Mahogany & aluminium steering wheel
Opening and closing bonnet and boot
Four-wheel disc brakes, and a hydraulic handbrake
Double wishbone suspension at the front, with the roll centre and camber gain matching the original geometry
Rear live axle as per the original, with authentic upper and lower trailing-arm suspension and panhard rod

The car is available in two model types – the DB5 Junior (£35,000) and the DB5 Vantage Junior (£45,000), the latter providing a serious performance upgrade. Both models are fully customisable, with a range of accessories on offer to choose from.

Production of the DB5 Junior commences in 2021 and as a strict limited edition, our clients are now securing their build slots by placing a fully-refundable deposit. Should you be interested in reserving a build slot for your own DB5 Junior, please contact us for further information.
