Lunaz has now revealed its limited-edition electric Aston Martin DB6 and it’s likely to cost you around $1,000,000…
Classic EV specialists, Lunaz revealed its latest addition to the company’s growing portfolio of high-end electric classic cars – a battery-powered example of the iconic Aston Martin DB6 with order books opened as from today and projected deliveries expected in 2023.
An in-depth development programme will be overseen by Design Director from Aston Martin Q-Branch and Engineering Director who worked across James Bond Aston Martin projects.
The limited run of electrified Aston Martin DB6’s joins an already impressive list of exotic EV conversions including the Rolls-Royce Phantom V, Jaguar XK120, Range Rover and Bentley created at the largest occupied manufacturing space within the Silverstone Technology Cluster.
While very little information surrounding the exact specification has been released the DB6 will shed its thirsty 4.0-litre straight-six for a more sedate albeit ‘rapid’ European-sourced modular 80-120kWh battery pack delivering 255 miles of range which the company produces in-house. CCS fast-charging is incorporated allowing charging times to be relatively short although purists will say ‘not as quick as filling my tank up’.
Each selected electric DB6 will undergo its rigorous strip, 3-D scan, and bare-metal restoration process with the finished product offering full modernisation through the firm’s re-engineering process before it is converted to the Lunaz proprietary electric powertrain likely to produce around 380bhp and 516lb-ft of torque.
Traditional coachbuilding and restoration skills are then employed and the car is stripped down to a bare metal shell. Even imperceptible body defects are addressed by hand before the surface finish process begins.
The same approach extends to the interior. The in-house design team makes subtle adaptations to integrate modern conveniences such as satellite telecommunications, WiFi, audiovisual entertainment, and other navigation aids.
David Lorenz, Founder, Lunaz:
“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”
Lunaz says it’s now taking orders for the electric Aston Martin DB6 with prices beginning at an eye-watering $1,000,000 – that’s £733,000 before taxes if you’re interested. Deliveries are expected to be in the third quarter of 2023.
Highly limited build-slots will also be made available for Aston Martin DB4 and DB5 cars which are to follow shortly.
