You will be able to buy a 1/3 scale version of James Bond's Aston Martin DB5
Propshop, the company behind the replica Aston DB5 that gets shot to bits in Skyfall (pictured aboved), has announced a limited production run of just 100 1/3-scale Aston Martin DB5s, and you should be immediately interested.
Prinicipally because each DB5 model gets radio control mechanical front guns, a revolving number plate and bullet shield, among other gadgets.
They're also highly collectible, too, and not just as manchild playthings: one of the models made for Skyfall (of three in total) was auctioned off for £50,000 at Christies recently.
These things are amazing - they even feature proper stitching on the leather seats. If you're truly tiny, you could probably squeeze behind the wheel. Time for that crash diet.
