A sneak peek into the revamped Aston Martin

The 2020 version of the car, known as the DB5 Junior, is an electric car, unlike its predecessor. It is 3m long and 1.1m wide (true to the ‘junior’ tag if you ask us). On a typical day, an electric car has incredible speed, but imagine the DB5 engine having that kind of horsepower; it’s going to be fast and furious!

The steering wheel is quite similar to the vintage version though it’s smaller. So as not to lose the vintage touch, the dashboard is designed by the same company that worked on the 1963 version. It won’t have a fuel gauge though. The junior will be painted with the legendary Aston Martin 1963 DB5 silver birch, and another vintage feature that you’ll be able to see is the wishbone suspension in the front and rear.

Can you ever talk about a car and not discuss the battery? The battery of DB5 Junior is at its normal place – under the bonnet – and it’s removable. On a full charge, it can power the vehicle for about 20 miles on a speed of 30mph. After a ride, you can change the battery yourself with ease.

You need to know this! The DB5 Junior will have three driving modes. The first being the Novice mode in which the power will be low, which means safe driving is the key point here. The second one is the Expert mode which can unleash all the horsepower in the car. Lastly, the Race mode is pretty self-explanatory, right?
