Restoring classic cars is not a simple task. Nonetheless, some people are able to restore them to perfection. But classic car restorations are being done on a whole glorious new level at Lunaz Design. In fact, the company is offering a limited number of Aston Martin DB6s restored not just to perfection, but also with electrification.
Adding Aston Martin Cars To Its Electrified Classics
Lunaz has been offering restored and electrified versions of classic cars from Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Range Rover, and Jaguar in the past few years. Now, the company has added Aston Martin to its electrified restoration list. The first model to embrace such a kind of restoration is the DB6, which is better known as the car of choice for British music legend Mick Jagger. Set to follow the DB6 in Lunaz’s production plan are the Aston Martin DB4 and DB5 cars.
Lunaz’s proprietary modular electric powertrain is the core of each electrified DB6, as comprised of European-sourced Tier 1 OEM battery cells and electric motors. According to the company, its electric classics source their power from batterres with capacities of between 80 kWh and 120 kWh. Boasting a range of 255 miles, each electrified vehicle is capable of fast-charging (CCS technology). Each electrified DB6 features uprated brakes, suspension and steering.
The company will treat each electrified DB6 to an exhaustive bare-metal restoration and re-engineering process, allowing Lunaz to restore the DB6 to concourse level as remastered to the personal whims of the customer (full-scope personalization). A team of engineers, restoration specialists, and craftspeople executes the entire process.
Lunaz’s restoration process is quite a hard work. It entails several steps, including stripping down the car to bare metal shell and addressing any body defect. Customers will have their say with interior and exterior surface details. They will be able to see their ‘completed’ DB6 even before Lunaz finish the full conversion through 2D sketches and advanced 3D models.
Aside from its electric powertrain, the DB6 by Lunaz also boasts several modern elements that help ensure comfort and convenience. These include air conditioning, the latest infotainment and navigation systems, as well as full Wi-Fi connectivity.
Over $1 Million For Each Aston Martin DB6 EV
Available in either left-hand drive or right-hand drive configurations, each electrified Aston Martin BD6 has a price north of $1 million (plus local taxes). The actual price depends on the customer’s personalized specs. The first batch of customers will take deliveries of their electrified DB6 in the third quarter of 2023. Lunaz will only disclose prices of the electrified DB4 and DB5 cars to customers when it receives their order applications.
