It was a year ago this week that Spectre was released, with Q providing James Bond with his latest vehicle, the Aston Martin DB10, of which only 10 were ever made. Well, to be accurate, Bond stole it and then proceeded to park it at the bottom of the Tiber.

Just once it would be nice to bring one back in pristine order, as Quartermaster Desmond Llewellyn eloquently phrased it.

Fast forward to present day, and we don’t have a new Bond movie underway just yet. But we do have this little gem, perfect for the privileged toddler on your holiday shopping list. Back in the day, all we had was a red metal fireman car. Anyway, now do pay attention, Double-O-Seven. This officially licensed Aston Martin DB10 6V is made by Feber in the U.K. and has “a few tricks up her sleeve,” as Q would put it. Cost is $247 USD.

The car will do up to 4 km per hour (2-and-a-half mph) via foot pedals or smart remote control. While lacking an ejector seat and any type of offensive firepower or defensive weaponry, it does come with electric brakes and a forward/reverse gear box. A Bluetooth connection means you can steer it for your toddler-sized Double O; a definitive license to thrill for parent and child alike.

You’ll need to charge it for 14 hours in order to get an hour’s driving time. The detail on this car is impressive. Every little bit is faithfully replicated, right down to the vents, grille, mirrors, and Aston badges on the hood and wheels.

Surprisingly, Neiman Marcus isn’t carrying this one. We did a search for “James Bond” and it came back with two copies of the Holy Bible. Perhaps NM should get Q fix its search engine.

It recently released this photo showing the rear end of the new convertible with its top up, with the tagline "Opening Spring 2018." The photo shows how Aston reshaped the DB11's rear in the transformation from coupe to convertible, but the car won't be available to the public for over a year. Talk about jumping the gun.

2017 Aston Martin DB11 First Drive

Every so often, I wake from a terrible nightmare. When I enter the dream world, there isn’t a 20-foot shark waiting in the deep cerulean waters, nor is there an axe-wielding lunatic panting from behind a rotting shed. Rather, my nightmare is set somewhere in the not too distant future, and I’m in a tremendous panic from behind the wheel of a sports car.

Aston Martin DB11 keeps the dream of driving alive and keeps the nightmare of mundanity at bay.
Ten minutes into the dream, I’ve finally been able to regain control from the autonomous driving system once the vehicle was a “safe distance” away from civilization. “Finally”, I think to myself, I can do some proper driving. But my glee quickly turns to horror as I turn the wheel and mash the throttle. I hear nothing; I feel nothing. My eyes tell my brain that the car is turning and that my surroundings are blurring from an increase in velocity…but my hands and feet process no feedback.
