Aston Martin and The Little Car Company are collaborating to create the Aston Martin DB5 Junior, an electric two-thirds scale version of the brand’s most iconic car. Powered by a electric powertrain delivering 5kW / 6.7 bhp to the rear wheels, the car will deliver a top speed of 30mph.
At around 3m long, and 1.1m wide, the DB5 Junior is designed to accommodate an adult and a child side by side.
Two versions are available, the DB5 Junior and the DB5 Vantage Junior. Only 1059 vehicles are going to be built.
Marek Reichman, Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin, says: “I’m thrilled to see this new, exquisite interpretation of what is, perhaps, our most iconic model join the Aston Martin family. Our partners, The Little Car Company have gone into meticulous detail to truly replicate the stunning form of the original DB5. I very much look forward to seeing these fun tributes to the timeless DB5 go into ‘service’ with owners of all ages around the world.”
Ben Hedley, CEO of The Little Car Company, adds: “It is an honour to partner with Aston Martin on this project, getting the opportunity to create a piece of history which will be passed down from one generation to the next. We are enormously proud of what we and the Aston Martin team have developed, and it is fantastic that we have made this iconic car accessible in a new way to a new generation of Aston Martin fans. As a child I would not have imagined any better way to learn to drive than in ‘The Most Famous Car in the World’.”
Production will commence in the UK in 2021, with deliveries taking place worldwide over the next two years. All final specifications to be confirmed before production commences.
