No time for battery death: Bond's Aston Martin runs on electricity
No time for battery death: Bond’s Aston Martin runs on electricity

SILVERSTONE, England: Daniel Craig may say goodbye to James Bond, but his iconic Aston Martin is getting a new life.

Bond actually drove a DB5, which is again featured in the latest Bond movie, “No Time To Die”. But the DB6 is considered by many to be the epitome of British car style since it was first unveiled in 1965.

In a modern twist, the DB5 and DB6 are now retrofitted to once again appear in a limited number as electric cars.

“For tomorrow’s women and men, this, electrified, is what you need to drive,” said David Lorenz, CEO and founder of Lunaz, which specializes in making classic cars electric, at the wheel of a DB6.

Each electrified Aston Martin DB6 will undergo an exhaustive restoration of bare metal, which Lunaz calls ‘remanufacturing’.

But what would Bond say when his beloved DB5 no longer gets the haunting roar?

“Bond has always been about modern technology,” Lorenz said.
