This wonderful two-thirds-scale version special edition No Time To Die Aston Martin DB5 Junior is fully loaded with machine guns and smoke but will cost you £90K…
Given it was only in August when The Little Car Company announced their collaboration with EON Productions and introduced the first Bond-inspired Aston Martin DB5 Junior which cost around £45K, it’s probably no surprise there’s a No Time To Die special edition Aston Martin DB5 Junior being launched today.
While there’s no ejector seat, the No Time To Die edition does have rather nice Smiths instrumentation and wears the instantly recognisable Silver Birch overcoat complete with Aston Martin badging. A fully electric powertrain gives the 007 SE a greater power range over the standard DB5 Vantage Junior, giving it a higher level of performance.
This latest addition to the Junior portfolio has been carefully designed as a convertible and comfortably seats an adult and child side by side with multiple driving modes and an impressive range of approximately 80 miles.
Gadgetry is fully loaded and includes a quick-release steering wheel to allow for a quick entry and exit for the driver, although some elements have been reimagined for the modern era. The fuel gauge has been converted into a battery meter, while the oil temperature now monitors the motor temperature.
Slowing down shouldn’t be too much of a problem either with regenerative braking and high-performance Brembo disc brakes. Bilstein dampers and coilover springs make sure the suspension can handle the performance any Junior 007 might decide to inflict on the two-thirds scaled model.
No Time To Die Specification
£90,000 gets you the obligatory Q-style gadgets which can be operated by 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.
Oscar®-winning special effects supervisor, Chris Corbould OBE:
“When I saw the DB5 Junior in the flesh, I was amazed at how identical it is to the full-sized car – it’s stunning. It’s an amazing feat of engineering.”
The No Time To Die special edition also has a unique digital number plate activated through the hidden control panel and, like the original car, this special edition can produce a smokescreen out of the exhaust from a tank that can supply an hour’s worth of getaway time if needed.
It’s worth remembering the DB5 Junior is not road legal, but as an authentic Aston Martin model, every owner will receive automatic membership of the respected Aston Martin Owners Club. In addition, all clients will receive complimentary membership of The Little Car Club, allowing them to take part in exclusive events where they, their children, and their grandchildren can drive their DB5 Juniors on the most prestigious racetracks.
Ben Hedley, CEO of The Little Car Company:
“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.”
What does it cost?
Take a deep breath – pricing for the car has been set at £90,000, plus local taxes. Existing Aston Martin DB5 Junior clients will be given the first refusal on upgrading to a No Time To Die edition, and remaining build slots will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
A strict run of 125 cars will be produced on a first-come, first-served basis, by placing a fully refundable deposit.
