Lunaz has made a name for itself converting iconic British classics into modern EVs, from the original Bentley Continental to the Range Rover Classic. The classic electric car brand even caught the attention of David Beckham, who bought a ten percent stake in the company. Now, Lunaz has revealed its latest conversion based on another British classic: the alluring Aston Martin DB6.
Replacing the DB6's original 4.0-liter straight-six engine is Lunaz's in-house-developed modular battery pack with capacities ranging from 80kWh-120 kWh and a range of up to 255 miles. No performance details were revealed, but Lunaz's converted Rolls-Royce Phantom V packs an electric motor producing 375 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
Every electric Aston Martin DB6 built by Lunaz receives a bare metal restoration, revitalizing the classic British sports car to concours-level condition. On the outside, the electric DB6 looks virtually identical to the original, retaining its sleek lines and striking silhouette. It's easily one of the elegant-looking electric cars we've seen yet.
It may look like an original DB6, but the brakes, steering, and suspension have been upgraded to modern standards to offset the weight of the electric powertrain. Inside, the DB6 is also upgraded with modern luxuries including air conditioning, an infotainment system, navigation, and Wi-Fi. Continuing the sustainability theme, the carpets are made from recycled fishing nets and 100-percent recycled textiles are appointed throughout the cabin. Leading the project is design director Jen Holloway, who used to head Aston Martin's bespoke Q-Branch division.
"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," said David Lorenz, founder and CEO at Lunaz Group. "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."
Every electrified DB6 will be assembled at Lunaz's headquarters at the Silverstone Technology Park by a team of 100 engineers who have worked for Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Jaguar, McLaren and Rolls-Royce.
Exact pricing details are being kept under wraps, but each electric Aston Martin DB6 will cost over $1 million. First deliveries are planned for Q3, 2023. Lunaz is also accepting commissions for electrified Aston Martin DB5s to channel your inner James Bond as well as electrified DB4s.
