A British startup, Lunaz, wants to secure the future of classic cars by making them electric. Reliability, usability and sustainability are addressed in pinnacle classic cars that have been restored and converted to electric powertrains. The proprietary powertrain is designed, engineered and manufactured in Silverstone, England, under the technical leadership of former Technical Director, Renault F1, Jon Hilton.
All classics by Lunaz are engineered with fast charging capability, regenerative braking systems and the sensitive 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.
“The Lunaz mission is to define the future of classics. We preserve the past by embracing the future, making the most beautiful cars in history a relevant proposition,” said David Lorenz, Founder of Lunaz.
From its inception in early 2018, the company has hired engineering, design and manufacturing talent from leading companies such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, McLaren, Formula 1, Jaguar, Volkswagen, Ford and Rolls-Royce.
