Major automotive award for Lunaz as it expands business at Silverstone Park
17 May 2021
Lunaz Design’s innovation in electric vehicles at Silverstone Park has won it a major BBC Top Gear magazine award.
The ‘Greatest Electric Cars in the World Right Now’ award coincided with Lunaz’s move from 11,000 sq ft premises at Silverstone Park to larger 40,000 sq ft accommodation on site – constructed as part of MEPC’s latest industrial development.
David Lorenz, Founder, Lunaz, commented:
“This recognition from one of the most authoritative voices in the car journalism is affirmation of the work of every engineer, technician and craftsperson here at the home of Lunaz on the Silverstone technology park.
“We are all proud of the role we play in furthering the legacies of these beautiful classics and look forward to up-cycling and converting many more in the future.”
Lunaz has carved itself a niche for converting iconic British cars – such as Jaguar XKs, Rolls-Royce’s Phantom and Silver Cloud, the Bentley Continental Flying Spur and Range Rover Classic models – to electric power.
In addition to becoming electric-powered, the cars are also fitted with modern suspension and braking systems – to help cope with the extra performance of electric power – and their interiors receive full luxury refurbishment.
In making the award, Top Gear’s Editor Jack Rix commented: “This is not killing history but preserving it for future generations. If Lunaz keeps wonderful shapes like this on the road, I’m 100% on board.”
