Aston Martin Makes $3,000 Limited-Edition Baby Stroller
Move over, Bugaboo. Step aside, UPPAbaby.
Harrods, the famed British department store, is offering what’s being billed as the ultimate in baby transportation: a stroller from British sports car-maker Aston Martin.
Fans of the James Bond film franchise might recall that the super spy often drives an Aston Martin that’s kitted out with some high-tech extras. The stroller, which retails for about $3,000, is made by Aston Martin in partnership with Silver Cross, a British company that specialized in carriages, high chairs and other baby goods.
Dubbed the Silver Cross Surf, Aston Martin Edition, this luxury buggy is perfect for the Bond baby set. The carriage has a winter footmuff with windproof performance fabrics, detachable baby carrier, sun shade and rain shield, and a folding, detachable shopping basket, according to details on Harrods website. It is finished with Italian suede.
“The handle bar… is made of fine Italian leather,” said Jonathan Halsall, commercial manager for Silver Cross. “It’s the same leather that’s used in the Aston Martin steering wheel.”
