But it has gatling guns.
If you have the bankroll to drive an exotic sports car like a 2022 Aston Martin DB11 Volante, chances are your children have some pretty flashy toys of their own. Last year, Aston Martin announced two toy cars called the DB5 Junior and DB5 Vantage Junior, limited to only 1,059 units and starting at a whopping $46,000. Now, the UK automaker will work again with The Little Car Company to create a limited edition version. It's called the Aston Martin DB5 Junior No Time To Die Edition, named after the James Bond film hitting theaters next month.
Like the standard DB5 Junior, this special edition model is a two-thirds scale version of the real DB5, powered by a a fully-electric drivetrain. The Junior No Time To Die Edition comes painted in Silver Birch as an homage to Bond's DB5, and it has plenty of other gadgets inspired by the fictional super spy.
One of the Q-inspired touches is a hidden switch panel in the passenger door, which operates simulated gatling guns that pop out of the headlights. The guns are obviously not functional, but do include barrel blasts and flashes. Other movie-inspired gadgets include a digital license plate, and a smokescreen that emits smoke from the rear exhaust pipes. Aston says the car has a supply tank, which can create an hour of child-safe smoke before needing a refill.
Unlike Bond's DB5 in the series, the Junior is designed as a convertible so children can sit and drive the car side-by-side with their parents. The interior features a quick-release steering wheel for a quick entry and exit, and there are even some automotive-grade components such as Brembo disc brakes and Bilstein dampers.
Whereas the base DB5 Junior only produces 6.7-horsepower and the juiced up Vantage model gets 13.4 hp, the No Time To Die Edition generates a whopping 21.4 hp. This is achieved by having four battery packs, rather than one in the base car or two in the Vantage. Having four batteries also enables a longer driving range of 80 miles. Several drive modes limit the power, in case your child is too young to handle 21.4 hp.
As we expected, pricing is steep, starting at £90,000 (around $123,000). That's more than twice the price of the DB5 Vantage Junior. The No Time To Die Edition is much rarer though, with only 125 units planned for production. If you want one for your kids, pre-orders are open now at 007junior.com.
