Aston Martin DB Convertible Junior is a £16,500 toy car that can do 46mph [video]

West London Aston Martin Heritage dealer, Nicholas Mee & Company LTD has a toy car that would make any boy happy.

The child-sized Aston Martin convertible is based on the DB models of the 1960s and costs £16,500. Not cheap, but this is most likely the coolest toy-car on the market.

The car is 2500mm in length and 1030mm in width, for children who are at least ten years old with power coming from a four-stroke, air-cooled 110cc petrol engine mounted at the front linked to a three-speed semi-automatic gearbox with power sent to the rear wheels. That’s pretty cool and sticks to the formula used in the original DB models.

What’s even cooler is that the Aston Martin DB Convertible Junior has a top speed of 46mph. This might be scary for some parents and thankfully it can be limited for safety reasons.

Other goodies include Brembo disc brakes, a coilover suspension, an adjustable pedal box, key-operated electric start, along with horn and fully functional indicators.

As with current production Aston Marin’s there is a wide choice of exterior paint hues, while the interior can be finished with vinyl or leather in different colours together with a wooden steering wheel.
