A retrofit classic with Jonny Smith the Aston Martin DB6.
Probably worth mentioning at the outset, Aston Martin prohibited the filming of the battery enclosure or motor mounts. They wouldn’t confirm any high voltage specs, battery capacity, estimated range or speed as yet – due to the project not being finalised.
Aston Martin is boldly offering to retro-fit their classics with in-house developed EV powertrains. This 1970 DB6 Volante mk2 (worth an estimated £1.5 million) is their development car.
Jonny Smith visits Silverstone race circuit to drive the original petrol and then the converted electric conversion test mule. The secret forerunner of what someone could be able to order in a matter of months.
