Known for its role in the Bond movies, the Aston Martin DB6 — even though James Bond actually drives a DB5 — is regarded as the epitome of British motoring style since 1965 when it was first introduced.
David Lorenz is the CEO and founder of Lunaz, which specializes in electrification. Each electrified Aston Martin DB6 will be subject to a thorough bare-metal restoration Lunaz offers. “re-manufacturing.”
“I want to preserve these vehicles for future generations to come,” Lorenz told Reuters.
“My daughter is three years old,” Lorenz said. “When she’s of driving age she’ll be driving electric cars and I want her to enjoy vehicles like this.”
Lunaz already electrifies other influential cars from the past, including models of the Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Jaguar.
Soon, Lunaz will offer limited build slots for the Aston Martin DB4 as well as Bond’s iconic DB5, which achieved pop-culture status following the 1964 release of “Goldfinger.”
