We're pretty sure we've seen this sort of thing in the 1997 sci-fi film "Gattaca," where dozens of rare classic cars move around nearly silently with a few electrical noises. For anyone itching to make the change, it'll be Aston Martin Works handling the conversions, which are expected to kick off next year. Aston Martin Works has announced an official electric conversion program making the British marque, one of the first to do such work in-house.
To showcase the concept, the team carried out the conversion on an original 1970 DB6 MkIIVolante, whereby the cassette is enclosed within its own self-contained cell.
Billed as the world's first reversible electric powertrain conversion, Aston Martin's new initiative arrives in the face of environmental pressures and ever-stringent regulations regarding the use of combustion-engined cars.
Aston Martin reckons it has the answer in the form of a "cassette" electric powertrain.

The conversion to EV power mitigates any future legislation that might restrict the use of classic cars.
