Finally, A Car Fit For Pint-Sized Drivers

Let's face it - Vehicles made for kids are kind of lame. After all, where is the thrill in driving a car whose top speed is 5 mph! Now, there is hope - A car that not only looks like the real deal, but also, drives like it! And it's not just any car but a replica of the DB Aston Martin convertible, the kind even James Bond would be proud to be in.

Custom-made for drivers aged 10 and above, the two-door rear wheel drive vehicle that measures 98 X 40 inches, is the brainchild of the Harrington Group, a British-owned company based in Vietnam. It features a 110 cc 4-stroke, air-cooled gas engine that can be turned on with a key-operated electric starter. The slick vehicle also comes with a 3-speed gear box, coil over suspension, Brembo disk brakes, working indicators and fully functioning lights for those that wish to cruise around at night. Though it can go as fast as 46 mph, nervous drivers or parents can adjust the settings and decrease the maximum speed.

Though the standard exterior color is silver, the manufacturer is happy to build one that matches the color of the real classic that may already be sitting in your garage. As for the interior? That is available in a neutral black and can be ordered in either vinyl or if you want to go all out, pure leather. And in case you are worried, thanks to the car's adjustable pedals it can accommodate kids of all sizes and even an adult if one wishes to squeeze in for a joy ride.

While this classic car will set you back about $13,000 USD if bought directly from the manufacturer and $27,000 USD if purchased from a dealer, it is a bargain compared to the adult version which goes for at least $750,000 USD. Also, if an Aston Martin is not something you envision yourself in, don't fret. The Harrington Group has a lineup of pint-sized classic cars ranging from the Jaguar XK120 to the Ferrari 250 California Spyder, available. The only unfortunate part is that cars are not street legal, which means you will not be able to impress your friends by driving yourself to school. But it sure would look cool in the garage, wouldn't it?
