Lunaz has added Aston Martin’s iconic DB6 model to the line-up of luxury vehicles it converts to electric power at its premises at Silverstone Park, where it now employs 100 highly skilled engineers, restoration specialists, EV technicians and designers.
David Lorenz, Founder, Lunaz commented: “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.”
Meanwhile, the business believes its 100 staff form the largest collective of its type in the world, engaged in the electrification and re-engineering of classic cars.
The introduction of the DB6 means Lunaz now carries out EV (electric vehicle) conversions of all of Britain’s most celebrated classic automotive marques, adding to models of the era by Bentley, Jaguar and Rolls Royce.
Recently it also added conversions of Range Rovers as well industrial vehicles for customers, as England footballing legend David Beckham confirmed he had invested in the business…
As with its other marques, Aston Martin DB6 by Lunaz will undergo a full restoration, re-engineering and remastering process at the, business’s Silverstone Park HQ which has undergone further expansion inside and now totals 40,000 sq ft of floorspace.
Each car by Lunaz represents an authentic remastering of the original. This is led by Design Director, Jen Holloway. Her background as a lead in Aston Martin’s Q-Branch provides a unique sensitivity to the heritage and aesthetic sensibility that has ensured the DB6s status as one of the most revered examples of British automotive design.
The result is an entirely renewed exterior and interior, crafted with the requirements of contemporary use but with a profound sensitivity to each individual vehicle’s heritage.
Driveability is ensured through the uprating of brakes, suspension and steering, whilst 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.
First deliveries of Lunaz’s electrified DB6 are expected in Q3 2023.
