“Half-scale cars are small enough and timid enough to stage a mini Grand Prix in your own backyard, and they’re an ideal initial experience for a young adult to develop a first-hand relationship with motorininertia, momentum, yaw and traction when the human learning system is at its most receptive and can be calibrated for life” –Harrington Group
All of the cars run a 5.0 kW 120 cc four-stroke motor, but as the cars only weigh a bit over 200 kg and have a small frontal area, in standard form, they’re good for 44 mph (72 kmh). The engine and gearbox unit sourced from Loncin/Lifan uses a three-speed (plus reverse), semi-automatic transmission with a sequential gear change and is employed by a number of manufacturers in producing quad bikes.
The pedal box is also adjustable so that the same car can be used by a six year old or a six foot three parent, and the transition to the second generation of scaled cars was done with a great deal of thought for the parents who would share the fun, right down to the size of the seat required to comfortably accommodate said parents’ bottoms.
The Aston uses an electric starter and 12 volt electrics with working lights, horn and indicators. The fuse box is in the trunk along with the spare wheel and battery, so everything is easily accessible. This superb Aston DB5 Junior is in excellent condition and originally purchased by Tom Papadopoulos for his then younger children. It has always been serviced as needed and cared for from new. This superb Junior Aston is seeking a new enthusiast home to be enjoyed by the whole family.
