Lunaz Design in the UK have announced the introduction of a limited production run of restored and re-engineered Aston Martin DB6 electric cars. It’s the Silverstone-based converters mission to further the legacies of the most beautiful cars in the world by transforming them into clean zero-emissions electric vehicles (EVs)
These join the stable of the rapidly growing company that is already meeting significant global demand with the world’s first and only electric Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Range Rover and Jaguar models. Highly limited build-slots will also be made available for Aston Martin DB4 and DB5 cars.
David Lorenz, Lunaz Group CEO, said: “The introduction of electric Aston Martin DB6 cars has been driven by sustained demand from our existing clients. It also reflects the desires of an entirely new classic car buyer.
“These women and men have been drawn to Lunaz because for the first time they are presented with the powertrain and modern conveniences of today, clothed in a design that speaks of an era when aesthetic purity was the only requirement.”
Exact prices haven’t been announced and will be communicated privately on application but exceeds $1million plus local taxes. First deliveries are scheduled for the third quarter of 2023. Prices for rare DB4 and DB5 model cars will be available strictly on application.
Each electrified Aston Martin DB6 will undergo an exhaustive bare-metal restoration and re-engineering process. This means clients will be presented with a concourse-level vehicle that addresses the key requirements of usability, reliability and sustainability that serves as the foundation for Lunaz’ leadership of the electric classic car market.
Driveability is ensured through the up-rating of brakes, suspension and steering. Interior comfort and convenience is brought up to modern standards through the provision of air conditioning and the sensitive integration of latest infotainment, navigation systems and full Wi-Fi connectivity.
The car will be powered by Lunaz’ proprietary modular electric powertrain. This has been developed entirely in-house and comprises of the highest standard European-sourced Tier 1 OEM battery cells and motors. All current Lunaz vehicles’ battery capacity range from 80-120kWh and offer a range of 255 miles (410km). Every car by Lunaz is equipped with CCS fast-charging capability.
This coincided with the launch of the expanded Lunaz Group and the wider application of its modular electric powertrain for the remanufacturing and conversion of industrial vehicles.
David Lorenz, Lunaz Group CEO, said: “The rapid growth of Lunaz reflects the growing role that remanufacturing and electrification plays in plotting a sustainable course to a clean-air powertrain future.
“By furthering the legacies of these beautiful Aston Martins we create many more highly skilled jobs and expand our clean-technology production presence at our home in Silverstone, England. We are proud to take vehicles of all types that already exist and extend their use for many generations to come.”
