Aston Martin DB6 EV conversion coming in 2023
Search Driven for vehicles for sale
British brand, Lunaz, is known for creating EV conversions of classic cars. It's latest project, an Aston Martin DB6. Except it swaps out the original inline-six for an electric engine.
If you're keen to get your hands on one of these stunners, prices are set to exceed $1 million, according to Lunaz, with deliveries starting Q3 2023.
But if you'd prefer the EV conversion of a classic DB4 or DB5, apparently Lunaz are taking commissions.
To create an accurate conversion, Lunaz starts by stripping down an authentic DB6 to the bare metal. The original engine and drivetrain are saved, in case a future owner wants to return the vehicle to the original specification.
Looking at the exterior, there's no immediate way to tell that it's an EV-converted Aston Martin. The company promises "the car will marry brisk initial acceleration with the requirements of a classic car."
Like previous Lunaz models, the DB6 has a battery capacity of somewhere between 80 kilowatt hours and 120 kWh. The projected range is 410 kilometers. The brakes, suspension, and steering are also updated by Lunaz to suit the new EV powertrain.
Customers can make customisation requests, such as adding modern amenities like air conditioning, navigation, and an infotainment system; or requesting things like carpets from recycled fishing nets and other sustainable materials.
Even by Lunaz standards, a starting price of $1 million is on the expensive side, with their 1961 Bentley S2 Continental Flying Spur EV starting at £350,000 and their 1961 Rolls-Royce Phantom V beginning at £500,000.
Some of their other conversions include a 1953 Jaguar XK120 and first-gen Range Rover.
