Newly-founded classic car electrification company, Lunaz, has announced details of its first soon-to-be-launched models.
A 1961 eight-seat Rolls-Royce Phantom V, a 1956 Rolls-Royce Cloud, and a 1953 Jaguar XK120 (pictured above respectively), are all currently being prepared for market introduction.
The cars will be driven by a “completely unique, proprietary” EV powertrain that has been designed, engineered and manufactured at the company’s headquarters in Silverstone, under the watch of Jon Hilton, who not only co-founded Lunaz but also formerly served as Renault F1’s technical boss.
The cars will also get fast charging capability, regenerative braking systems and the integration of modern conveniences like traction control and cruise control.
“These cars will be the first electrified examples of their kind in the world. The choice of iconic classics to convert is testament to Lunaz’s confidence in an electrification package developed, engineered and manufactured entirely in-house,” says the company, which also has its own in-house team of designers and craftspeople.
Pricing will start at £350,000, while order books are set to open in November 2019.
