Aston Martin DB6 Transformed Into Electric Beauty

  • No kidding

Power management for the entire system is done via a screen that is discreetly fitted to the car's interior.

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 MkII Volante, 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.

Similar to Jaguar's "reversible EV" solution revealed in the royal wedding E-Type earlier this year, the Aston's "cassette" fits in the engine bay, replacing the original engine and sitting on the original engine and gearbox mountings. Cords from the power unit then feed the car's electrical systems.

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

"Our Second Century Plan not only encompasses our new and future models, but also protects our treasured heritage".
