We desperately want this teeny No Time To Die DB5

Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 gets The Little Car Company treatment. We’re infatuated

The long, long wait to watch No Time To Die is very nearly up, and Aston Martin’s latest James Bond collaboration has us very excited indeed.

It’s The Little Car Company No Time To Die special edition of the Aston Martin DB5 Junior. Big name, small car.

It’s a two-thirds scale version of the iconic DB5 that’ll make its return in the 25th Bond film, complete with all of the brilliant Q branch gadgets including fake gatling guns behind the flip down headlights, an oil dispenser to unstick pursuing bad guys, a changeable numberplate and a smoke screen that can be deployed for a whole hour before it needs topping up. Brilliant.

The No Time To Die edition also gets more power and range compared to TLCC’s standard DB5 Junior. Yep, it’s fully electric, and it’ll manage around 80 miles on a single charge. Not far off a Honda e, that.

It’s a proper piece of kit this. There’s regenerative braking, Brembo disc brakes, Bilstein dampers and coilover springs. Oh, and that glorious wooden steering wheel has a quick-release mechanism. Combined with the lack of roof, that means adults can fit in it and drive too. Sign us up.

Only 125 examples will be built, according to Aston and TLCC, with prices starting at £90,000 plus taxes. Yikes, looks like we might need to enact a dastardly plot to be able to afford one…
