UK-based Electric Vehicle (EV) conversion company, Lunaz is making interesting and exciting EVs by converting classic cars. The aim is to ensure that classic cars remain on our roads for future generations to own, experience and adore.
Lunaz’s has designed and developed an electric powertrain to breathe new life into classic cars, with a proprietary technology thus bring electric versions of some of the most celebrated classics in history – a 1961 eight-seat Rolls-Royce Phantom V, Rolls Royce Cloud and a 1953 Jaguar XK120.
Lunaz says its motors are good for power output of up to 700NM of torque (516lb ft) from idle and 375 bhp (380 ps) peak power. In other words, it’ll be far faster than anyone realistically needs it to be.
Sure, a Tesla can do zero to 60 in under 3 seconds, but why would you worry about speed when you’ll look so damn good driving this thing?
Keeping pace with modernity, the new Jaguar XK120 also has regenerative braking, satellite navigation and bluetooth phone connectivity.
They doesn’t give a specific range for this vehicle, because that largely depends on whether it’s specified with one or two motors, and how many batteries are installed.
However, the company does say average real world range for its vehicles comes in at around 250 – 300 miles (483 km).
The Lunaz team is comprised of senior technical talent from Aston Martin, Ferrari, Jaguar, Rolls-Royce, VW, Cosworth and McLaren. Together they hand-build the finest electric classic cars in the world.
