Aston Martin, The Little Car Company, and EON Productions recently debuted the No Time To Die special edition Aston Martin DB5 Junior. No Time To Die, the 25th James Bond film, featured the return of the iconic Aston Martin DB5 in the film, which was the inspiration for the Aston Martin DB5 Junior. The unique and fruitful partnership between Aston Martin and The Little Car Company produced this little gadget-filled collector’s item. The DB5 Junior is two-thirds the size of the original and equipped with a fully electric powertrain.

Specifications

The DB5 Junior, No Time To Die edition really paid tribute to the shared history of the two brands. It has a Silver Birch finish, Smiths instruments, and each unit will come with individually numbered chassis plates, as well as Aston Martin badging. In true Bond style, the special edition DB5 Junior has greater range and power compared to the DB5 Vantage Junior, perfect for the future Bond.

The three companies collaborated for months and worked on extensive developments to create a truly authentic tribute that is worthy of both the Aston Martin and the 007 brands. For reference, the original Aston Martin DB5 was 3D-scanned, to create a very accurate reproduction. The Smiths instruments on the dashboard were replicated from the original car as well as other elements, while there were also some elements that were re-imagined for the modern era. They changed the fuel gauge into a battery meter, while they replaced the oil temperature monitor to now check the motor temperature.

Instead of the fixed head coupe driven by 007, the No Time To Die Special Edition was created as a convertible. The DB5 Junior can fit an adult and child side by side, so allow multiple generations to both enjoy the ride and their love for 007. The DB5 Junior has multiple driving modes and a range of up to 80 miles so future secret agents can surely get away unscathed. Lucky owners will also have some hidden ‘Easter Eggs’ waiting to be discovered within the car.

The junior car is equipped with a quick-release steering wheel to allow the driver a faster entry and exit. It was also given a regenerative braking as well as high-performance Brembo disc brakes. Bilstein dampers and coilover springs ensures that the suspension is capable of handling the junior car’s performance.
