Nicolas Mee & Co, an Aston Martin Heritage Dealer from West London has unveiled the world’s smallest functional Aston Martin: the DB Junior. It’s inspired by the legendary Aston Martin DB models of the 1960s and boasts composite coachwork sitting on a sturdy steel box-section chassis, leather or vinyl seats, a wood-rimmed steering wheel and hydraulic disc brakes.

According to Car Scoops, “The car is about half the size of a normal car, measuring 2,500mm (98,4in) in length and 1,030mm (40.5in) in width. It is powered by a 110cc, four-stroke petrol engine with key-operated electric start, mated to a 3-speed semi-automatic gearbox. Top speed is 46 mph (74 km/h), but it can be restricted downwards. And even if it weren’t, the Brembo disc brakes provide enough stopping power to bring it safely to a halt. On the inside, the driver has full use of indicators, lights and of course, the horn. The DB Junior is offered in a wide range of colors and trim that can even be matched to a full-size Aston Martin already in the family.”
