Lunaz Design, a British engineering firm based in Silverstone, has unveiled their latest creation – a stunning all-electric, fully restored 1961 Bentley Continental S2 Flying Spur. “The world’s first electric classic Bentley”, the custom S2 starts at £350,000 ($484k).
Range and performance specifications were not given, but for reference Lunaz’s fully electric 1961 Rolls-Royce Phantom is powered by an 80kWh battery pack that provides a range of over 250 miles per charge and can go from 0-60 mph in under 5 seconds. Inside, Lunaz’s S2 combines elegant craftsmanship with modern tech. The car has been given an infotainment system, which features Apple CarPlay. A modern air-conditioning system has been added, as have power-steering and improved brakes.
Lunaz is also developing electric versions of the S1 and S3 Bentley Continentals. As well as the Rolls-Royce Phantom EV mentioned above, the firm is working on restored restored Range Rover Classic EVs and electric Jaguarr XK120s, XK140s and XK150s.
