This Toy Aston Martin is As Close As You Are Going to Get to a Real Bond Car
Scalextric, one of the world’s leaders in slot car racing, is releasing a new track and two new cars to commemorate the release of Skyfall. The two new cars in the Scalextric James Bond 007 Skyfall Set are miniature versions of Bond’s vehicles of choice in the new movie – an Aston Martin DB5 and a Range Rover. The track itself is appropriately daring, including a figure 8 and a jump off a ramp, which, to be fair, is pretty bold when we’re talking about slot cars (even though the track looks well designed to compensate for errant jumps).
No word on whether or not you’ll get any gadgetry on those cars to foil your slot car competitors. The whole set comes with the two vehicles, the set, and the two control sticks. Scalextric is offering the Scalextric James Bond 007 Skyfall Set for £120 of the queen’s money, which comes out to around $191 stateside.
