The Silverstone-based specialists for the electrification of classic cars, Lunaz design, recently expanded their portfolio according to their own statement: "world's first electric classic based on a Bentley“Expanded. And you have one Bentley S2 Continental Flying Spur from 1961 with a fully electric drive train equipped. Lunaz calls this'electrification'. Visually, however, it is almost from the series can not be to distinguish. The classic design of the Continental is largely unaffected. The visual modifications are limited to one specified by the customer two-tone paint in green (Green in the lower area, silver for the roof section, bonnet, trunk lid). The rest is original. Only the original drivetrain and chassis is practical nothing left. The 6,2 liter V8 has been removed to make room for one E-Motor to be created with unknown capacity and performance. However, we estimate that he is in the area of the 2020 rebuilt Rolls-Royce Phantom V. is. So approx. 375 PS and 700 NM perform.
Lunaz Bentley S2 Continental Flying Spur!
The system uses a 80-kWh battery, which has a range of more than 250 miles (approx. 400 km) and the similarly sized Rolls-Royce in less than five seconds from 0 to 60 miles per hour (approx. 97 km / h). The classic became complete in the cabin restored by hand (Body stripped where it was necessary to be repaired) and with Leather and walnut trim rebuilt. In terms of modern features, there was one Air conditioning and an Infotainment display in retro style with Navigation function and the option to pair the mobile phone via Apple CarPlay. And there are even two perfectly fitting child seats, in the leather of the interior. With regard to the significant increase in performance, the Bremsanlage adapted accordingly and the old manual rack and pinion steering was against a electrical system exchanged. The use of the Electric mod based on Bentley is even said to be Daily Driver be possible and other vehicles based on the S1, S2 and S3 generation as a two- or four-door model have already been announced.
E-drive: made for daily use!
Prices start from £ 350.000 excluding tax, with production being "strictly limited" and therefore highly exclusive. Incidentally, like the electrified one Mk1 Range Rover from late 2020, the Bentley conversion will also be carried out in "Convertible shape" to be available. Lunaz would like to expand significantly in the next few months and move into a new building with five times the area near the Silverstone race track. Furthermore, each vehicle should only be created in close consultation with the future owner no mass production occur. In order to enable the expansion of the portfolio, the workforce should be in 2021 doubled and until the end of the year 100 employees to grow.
