lunaz remasters and electrifies the aston martin DB6

THE ASTON MARTIN DB6, ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL CARS, ELECTRIFIED

 

since 2018, lunaz has been restoring, re-engineering and electrifying some of the world’s most beautiful cars. continuing to further the legacy of these classics, lunaz has unveiled an electrified aston martin DB6. one of the most celebrated cars in british history, this aston martin joins the likes of the world’s first and only electric rolls-royce, bentley, range rover and jaguar sportscar models.

 

‘the introduction of electric aston martin DB6 cars has been driven by sustained demand from our existing clients,’ said david lorenz, founder and CEO, lunaz group. ‘it also reflects the desires of an entirely new classic car buyer. these women and men have been drawn to lunaz because for the first time they are presented with the powertrain and modern conveniences of today, clothed in a design that speaks of an era when aesthetic purity was the only requirement.’

USABILITY, RELIABILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY COME TOGETHER IN THE LUNAZ ASTON MARTIN DB6

 

each electrified aston martin DB6 by lunaz will undergo an exhaustive bare-metal restoration and re-engineering process. this means clients are presented with a concourse-level vehicle that addresses the key requirements of usability, reliability and sustainability.

 

driveability is ensured through the up-rating of brakes, suspension and steering while interior comfort and convenience is brought up to modern standards through the provision of air conditioning and the sensitive integration of the latest infotainment, navigation systems and full Wi-Fi connectivity.

80-120KWH BATTERY WITH A 255-MILE RANGE

 

the electric car will be powered by lunaz’ proprietary modular electric powertrain, which has been completely developed in-house and features tier 1 OEM battery cells and motors. the battery’s capacity ranges from 80-120kWh, giving a 255-mile range to the car. each car is equipped with CCS fast-charging capability.

 

every aston martin DB6 build by lunaz begins with a bare metal restoration, meaning its customer is afforded a full scope of personalization. each of these cars will represent a truly singular expression of the breed, remastered entirely in the client’s image.

the re-engineering starts with an exhaustive inspection where each corner is weighed to understand the original weight distribution. this informs decisions on chassis setup, powertrain packaging and suspension. the internal combustion engine and associated systems are then removed and stored on behalf of the client before the chassis is prepared for re-engineering and electrification.

the car is then 3D-scanned, allowing engineers to create a detailed CAD model that ensures technical perfection. a modular technical approach designed by lunaz allows the adaptation of the powertrain to the exact requirements and characteristics of different marques and applications. 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 aston martin DB6 delivered on the promise of truly indulgent continental touring. Its lines marry dynamic purpose with generous proportions,’ said jen holloway, design director, lunaz design.  ‘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.’
