The Junior Cars that reach speeds of 46mph and cost from £8000 up to £20,000
Blue Cobra starting price £7,995
This could be the ultimate toys for rich brats – unless the brat was us, and then it would be absolutely fine.
Think what you might about a toy car that costs about as much a nicely equipped Mini, these Junior Cars are absolutely amazing.
Styled to look like a 1960s classics customers are free to specify the color and trim, much like they would a real Aston. The headlights, indicators, and horn are all fully-functional too.
The cabin has a wood-rimmed steering wheel, while the seats can be ordered in vinyl or leather trim. If you think that’s insane, then take a look at the Junior cars performance specs!
This isn’t some pedal-powered contraption, not by a long shot. Under the tiny hood is a 110cc gasoline-fed engine which features key-operated starting, and comes mated to a 3-speed semi-automatic transmission. According to Nicholas Mee & Co., the London-based Aston Martin dealer offering the DB Junior, this wee toy car can hustle its way to a top speed of 46 mph.
Yep, Junior could just about get his first taste for highway driving in this thing! The top speed can
be adjusted downwards, however.
There’s good news for those who are young at heart – these cars has room for a full-size adult.
“We regularly have enquiries from our clients looking for something unusual and different to add to their collection of classics,” said dealership manager Benja Hedlet of Pocket Classics.co.uk
In standard tune the cars reach 45mph (72 kph). This can be restricted for younger drivers. Owners may modify the cars to reach speeds in excess of 80 mph (128 kph). The cars in standard tune use approx. 1.5 litres an hour.
