Aston Martin DB6 goes electric with Lunaz


The classic British 2+2 coupe could be yours for just under $2 million.


British electric vehicle conversion specialist Lunaz has revealed plans to modernise the 1965 Aston Martin DB6 sports car with a zero-emission powertrain.

The Silverstone-based company – which has previously electrified classic models from Bentley, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Rolls-Royce – was founded in 2018, and designs all mechanical parts in-house.

In Lunaz’s newest model, Aston Martin’s original 210kW/380Nm 4.0-litre straight-six petrol engine has been swapped out for a single electric motor on the rear axle.


Performance details have not been divulged, however the manufacturer says the layout will permit “brisk initial acceleration.”

A driving range of approximately 410km between charges is claimed. It’s unclear what battery is in the vehicle, however previous Lunaz projects – including the Bentley Flying Spur and first-generation Range Rover – have drawn energy from an 80kWh lithium-ion pack.

Inside the cabin, modern creature comforts including an infotainment screen and air conditioning are available as options.

“There is no more evocative GT car than the Aston Martin DB6 – It presents an alluring marriage of fastback design, indulgent proportions and one of the most iconic shapes ever conceived in metal,” the company said in an official statement.

“Remastering and electrification amplifies the characteristics of a car so beautiful we have a responsibility to preserve it for many generations to come.”

The Lunaz Aston Martin DB6 will be available in both left- and right-hand drive, meaning – should the company attract local interest – Australian deliveries should be possible. With the first examples going into production this month, pricing is reported to start from £1 million ($AU1.9 million).
