Zapping Autonews Green Piëch GT (2024): a prototype of an electric sports car in the video
The British company Lunaz, headed by David Lorenz, has long specialized in reviving legendary British vehicles such as the Jaguar XJ120, Rolls-Royce Phantom V or some Bentleys from the early 1960s. But instead of restoring the heat engines of these cars, Lunaz supplies them with a set of 100% electric motors, while maintaining the interior and exterior decoration that is fully consistent with the original model. It’s the principle of retrofitting that only a few details can set an ear for the true nature of the mechanics built into these vintage cars. Among the most obvious are the lack of exhaust and heat engine noise.

The Aston Martin DB6 converted by Lunaz uses the electron fuel engine developed by John Hilton, a longtime engineer who worked in Formula 1. Thus, the -6 4.0 inline engine typical of this British coupe is replaced by an electric motor no less. Over 390 horsepower and 700 Nm, the Lonaz takes advantage of this new technology to make the car easier to use on a daily basis with optimized steering, suspension and braking. Modern technologies are also integrated into the car, such as a modern infotainment system, automatic air conditioning or even on-board navigation.
Few talk about the true nature of the battery, the brand lonaz It indicates that his DB6 engine is connected to beams of various sizes (80 to 120 kWh). The sports coupe’s range can therefore be increased to 255 miles depending on the manufacturer, or 410 kilometers on the WLTP cycle. The Lunaz DB6 has been designed with respect for the environment despite its very high-end functionality, incorporating renewable or recycled materials for its upholstery and other decorative elements inside. To afford this silent and (almost) unspoiled little marvel, you would still have to pay around 1 million euros. Obviously not for everyone! It is also possible to order DB4 or a DB5 On the same principle. The first deliveries are scheduled for the end of 2023.
Lunaz decided to integrate its electric motor into the Aston Martin DB6 and unveiled a high-quality but expensive retrofit. At around 1 million euros, the DB6 in new condition with an electric motor of 390 hp and 700 Nm of torque, the piece is hard to swallow! With an 80-120 kWh battery, the vehicle can have a range of up to 255 miles (410 km). It is also possible to order DB4 or DB5 according to the same principle.
