EV conversion specialists Lunaz Design has completed the reengineering of a fully electric Aston Martin DB6.
The all-electric DB6 will join the Silverstone-based company’s lineup of other electric conversions, which includes the world’s first production Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Range Rover and Jaguar sportscars.
Lunaz’s latest project will be overseen by the design director from Aston Martin Q-Branch, Jen Holloway, as well as Lunaz’s managing director Jon Hilton, who brings his experience as an F1 World Championship winning technical director.
David Lorenz, founder and CEO of Lunaz Group, commented: “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.”
The car will be powered by Lunaz’ proprietary modular electric powertrain, developed entirely in-house and comprised of the very highest standard European-sourced Tier 1 OEM battery cells and motors. All current Lunaz vehicles’ battery capacity ranges from 80-120 kWh with a range of 255 miles. Every car by Lunaz is also equipped with CCS fast-charging capability.
Earlier this year, Lunaz secured significant injection of growth capital from leading institutional investors, including David Beckham. This investment 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.
Beckham commented: “As an investor in Lunaz and a huge car enthusiast I’m delighted to see this new development which completes the company’s line up of British auto icons. I’m proud to be involved with a talented team that is leading the field in creating sustainable solutions.”
Following the confirmation of orders for these first cars, Lunaz will now offer to clients across the globe a highly limited production allocation of Aston Martin DB6 cars in both Left Hand Drive and Right Hand Drive configuration. Exact prices will be communicated privately on application but exceeds $1million + 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.
Jon Hilton, managing director and technical lead of Lunaz Group, said: “Re-engineering and electrification delivers the ultimate Aston Martin driving experience. We are proud of our work creating a dynamic, engaging and truly usable expression of one of the great icons of British automotive heritage.”
Jen Holloway, design director of Lunaz Design, added: “The Aston Martin DB6 delivered on the promise of truly indulgent continental touring. Its lines marry dynamic purpose with generous proportions. This is a legacy we could not resist furthering by creating the most alluring electric car in the world. We are proud to introduce the quintessential British GT, remastered for a new generation.”
