As we are now on the run up to Christmas, it’s time to review the new James Bond 007 Scalextric Set.


It’s been the British secret agent 007’s choice of vehicle whenever he finds himself in a high-speed pursuit. However, there can only be one iconic bond car.  This Scalextric set features various traps and obstacles to decide which is the best Aston Martin of all time. 

Aston Martin has been James Bond’s vehicle of choice throughout the 007 franchise, and this set celebrates his most iconic choices: the Aston Martin DB5 and Aston Martin V8. Together in this incredible 1:32 scale set the two cars can go on an epic chase, fighting their way past baddies, through traps and obstacles to be crowned the best Bond Aston Martin of all time!

What’s in the box?

The box contains 1x 15v Transformer, 1x Half Straight Powerbase, 2x Standard Straight, 12x Standard Curve 45 Deg, 1x Half Straight, 2x Chicane Tracks, 1x Straight Crossover, 2x Hand Controllers, 1x Aston Martin V8 Vantage, 1x Aston Martin DB5, 1x Leaflets Pack.

Final Thoughts

If you’ve ever wanted to race two Aston Martins around a track, well now’s your chance!

Last year we reviewed the Micro Scalextric Set James Bond set and we loved it, now it’s time to race the normal size Scalextric cars around a track.

The attention to detail on the two cars is amazing, 007 is even driving both cars! The cars even have light up headlights so you can race in the dark if you want.

The cars really hold themselves to the track using what Scalextric describe as magnatraction. There is nothing worse than racing and the cars just keep coming off! That said, there are a few parts of the track that if you time it just right you can knock the other car off – now that is fun!

There is a crossroads piece of track which gives you the opportunity to knock your opponent off of the track, it’s not just a race anymore!

The controllers feel comfortable in your hand and are very responsive.

Once you have set up the track, which is fairly simple and quick, it’s time to choose which car is for which player – then its race time!

The James Bond 007 Scalextric Set (C1447M) is available now priced at £159.99 and is a web exclusive on the Scalextric website. If you have a James Bond fan in the family, then this is a really great Christmas present, it will bring hours of fun to the whole family!
