The world’s leading maker of restored, re-mastered, and electrified classic cars, Lunaz, has announced that in response to the ever-growing demand, they will be releasing more build allocation for their electric classic cars. Clients can now reserve the first tranche of production, which is scheduled for delivery in 2024.

Lunaz’s state-of-the-art facility in Silverstone, England increased its production capacity to 110 restored, re-engineered, and electrified vehicles every year, a 50% increase in build slots compared to 2020.

It was just a few months ago, in December 2021, that Lunaz announced their largest manufacturing and electrification facility which is just adjacent to their current site opposite the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit. The new location will give the company a total production space of 130,000 sq/ft, making Lunaz the largest employer and manufacturer in the Technology Cluster of Silverstone.

The expansion simply means that Lunaz will be able to meet the growing global demand for its electric classic cars.

A new generation of pinnacle car buyers are fueling the growing interest in electric classic cars. These were the same men and women who has previously scoffed at the idea of acquiring blue-chip classic cars because of issues regarding reliability, usability, and sustainability. Lunaz wiped away all the apprehensions on classic car ownership by providing an upcycled and clear-air version of a classic car. Lunaz has opened doors for classic car ownership for future generations who are keenly aware of their carbon footprint.

The company now has a line-up of the most celebrated and revered cars in British automotive history. Starting from Range Rovers from 1969 to 1994, they have also added the Bentley Continental S1, S2, S3, Jaguar XK120, 140, 150 in coupes, drophead coupes, and OTS body-styles. There are also the Rolls-Royce Silver Clouds, Rolls-Royce Phantoms, and their most recent addition: the Aston Martin DB6.

For restored, re-engineered, and electrified Range Rover Classics, prices start at £290,000 + local taxes. Bentley Continentals and Rolls-Royce Silver Clouds start at £350,000 + local taxes. The Jaguar XKs are a little more expensive at £375,000 + local taxes. Prices for the Rolls-Royce Phantom Vs start at £550,000 + local taxes. The most recent addition, the Aston Martin DB6s start at £950,000 + local taxes.

Lunaz started accepting orders in early 2020 and since then, they have grown their workforce 500% to meet demands. Currently, they employ more than 120 highly skilled engineers, craftspeople, designers, technicians, and restoration specialists, most of whom have had experience working in the biggest luxury automotive brands in the world like Aston Martin, Bentley, Arrival, McLaren, Ferrari, Rolls-Royce, Williams F1, Jaguar Land Rover, and Renault F1.

Fastest Growing ‘Clean-Tech’ Companies

Demand for the pinnacle classics is expected to rise with the debut of the company’s first industrial vehicle electrification projects so the number of employees is also expected to rise to more than 350 within the year. With the most prominent names in the British industry backing the company through significant investments, it is not surprising that Lunas has become one of the fastest growing clean-tech companies in Britain. The company received growth funding from the likes of David Beckham. Reuben, Barclay and Dallas families.

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Published

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
