Austin Pedal Cars - Austin J40 Continuation Price: Legacy Edition £25,000

Last Updated On: 20/03/2024

Austin Pedal Cars have launched their new J40 Continuation, an exquisite interpretation of the much-loved classic J40 pedal car, brought back to life by combining modern technology with traditional principles. Designed over many years, to automotive tolerances, the new Austin pedal car offers traditional style with the latest in technology to create the world’s finest pedal car. 

The Legacy Edition (see all images) is the first Austin Continuation model, a beautifully specified, limited edition car with a number of exclusive elements including its gleaming Ensign Red paintwork, an exact match to the original colour offered in the 1940s.

A brand new lightweight pedal and steering system (image 6) improves driveability and durability. CNC machined billet aluminium parts, super-smooth bearings and precision made components highlight Austin’s comprehensive approach to design and engineering.

The interior is traditionally styled using the finest leather, stitched and shaped by hand. The wooden rim steering wheel is complemented perfectly by the similarly prepared hand brake lever and a fully functioning electronic dash display sits centre stage before the driver.

Just 49 Legacy Edition cars will be created, a number chosen to celebrate the opening of the original Austin Pedal Cars factory in 1949, a landmark moment in automotive and cultural history.
