Prince George will soon be the proud owner of a new set of royal wheels!

The 2-year-old royal is set to inherit a half-size classic Aston Martin V8 Volante from his father Prince William.

The miniature green sports car, which has leather seats, working headlights and a radio, was presented to Prince Charles in 1988 as a gift for William and his brother Prince Harry.

And now that George is getting older, William is prepared to hand over the keys as soon as his son is ready to drive it.

Over the holidays, William took the car out of the Sandringham Museum on Queen Elizabeth‘s estate in Norfolk so it can be renovated, reports the Sunday Express

And the gift can’t come soon enough as little George is already a pro behind the wheel. The royal heir has his own ride-on fire engine, big enough for him and his friends to sit in – though not together! – during play dates at Anmer Hall and Kensington Palace.

“It’s very popular with his little pals,” a family friend told PEOPLE. “When he has a tea party or something like that, the fire engine is a real draw.”

The little royal has already had quite the adventurous start to the year. Just last week, he bundled up for his first day of nursery school. Now with the keys to a James Bond-approved car coming his way, George is already the king of cool!
