Lunaz designs all-electric Aston Martin DB6

The company says the car will be powered by Lunaz’s proprietary modular electric powertrain with a range of 180-250 miles.

Lunaz has revealed the final configuration of its first fully-electrified Aston Martin DB6 by Lunaz Design, which is bound for an unnamed U.S. client. The car, one of fewer than 1,800 made between 1965 and 1970, will be fully restored and upcycled at the Lunaz research and production facility at Silverstone, UK. It is the latest in a series of commissions involving the electrification of cars from marques including Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Jaguar and Range Rover.

Since the configuration of the client’s Aston Martin DB6 by Lunaz has been confirmed, it will undergo an exhaustive bare-metal restoration and re-engineering process to concourse standards. Lunaz says it is up-rating the brakes, suspension and steering, while interior comfort and convenience is brought up to modern standards through the provision of air conditioning and the integration of the latest infotainment, navigation systems and full Wi-Fi connectivity.

The car will be powered by Lunaz’s proprietary modular electric powertrain, developed entirely in-house and comprised of standard European-sourced Tier 1 OEM battery cells and motors. All current Lunaz vehicles’ battery capacity ranges from 80-120 kWh. The range is 180-250 miles. Every car by Lunaz is equipped with CCS fast-charging capability.


The final tune of this particular DB6 will be undertaken in close collaboration with the client, however, the Lunaz powertrain is capable of producing 375bhp and 516 lb.-ft. of torque, the company says.

Unveiled at the 1965 London Motor Show, the DB6 was an evolution of the DB4 and DB5, the latter famously driven by James Bond. Slightly longer and taller than its predecessors, the DB6’s improved headroom and legroom for rear-seat passengers made it a somewhat more practical proposition, without compromising its essential GT looks and character.

In its original form, the DB6 sported a DOHC straight-six, 3995 cc engine developing 282 bhp and capable of reaching 0-60 mph in 8.4 seconds and a top speed of 150 mph.
