All thanks to Lunaz, a specialist company which has been in the business of electric conversion and restoration for most of the iconic cars in the world for quite some time now, the newly electrified vintage Rolls-Royce Silver Clouds and Phantoms were recently unveiled in different body styles (drophead, 2-door coupes, and 4-door limousines, etc.)
The Lunaz company has just created the first electric version of the classic Rolls-Royce
According to David Lorenz, who happens to be the founder of Lunaz, recently said:
"No car in the world matches a Phantom for presence, style and significance,"
He went on to say:
"Through electrification we proudly further the legacy of the 'best car in the world', making Rolls-Royce ownership a relevant choice for a new generation. 2A Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud has always stood as the most beautiful expression of long-range luxury touring," he added. "Electrification brings a new dimension of usability and driver engagement to some of the most significant cars ever made."
The newly converted classic Rolls-Royce models will be limited to only thirty examples per each version. These Rolls-Royce electric-powered vintage models will join the likes of Jaguar and Bentley models, which have been successfully converted by Lunaz.
The classic Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and Phantom were stripped down, with the original combustion engine removed
From what we learnt, the electric conversion company is already taking orders from most of his existing customers, while many of these newly vintage Rolls-Royce cars are set to be delivered to iconic places or institutions around the globe.
The engineers and designers at Lunaz got the ideas from their earlier experiences working on Ferrari, Ford, Formula 1, Volkswagen, and many others to create their masterpieces.
The interior designs were restored to their original looks, with a touch of modern driving technology
During its creation, the classic models were stripped down completely, with every part weighed while the combustion engines were removed. The engineers were able to create CAD models from the 3D scan performed earlier. These CAD models were used so that the Lunaz's staff would fit every new part into the car.
The company also made use of conventional restoration and coach-building techniques to ensure the products retain their original vintage looks. The use of traditional method didn’t deter the modern-day skills. The latest tech features were offered such as navigation aids, audio-visual entertainment, satellite communication and Wi-Fi.
The newly converted vintage Rolls-Royce models are the first of such on the planet using electric power
The prices for these all-electric classic Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and Phantom models will be set at £350,000 (₦177.32 million).
