UK company Lunaz has unveiled a stunning 1961 Rolls-Royce Phantom V – the first of 30 Rolls-Royce electric restoration cars.

“No car in the world matches a Phantom for presence, style and significance,” said David Lorenz, founder of Lunaz.

“Through electrification we proudly further the legacy of the ‘best car in the world’, making Rolls-Royce ownership a relevant choice for a new generation.”

The Rolls-Royce marque joins existing electrified classic cars from Jaguar and Bentley in the Lunaz portfolio.

The announcement follows a surge in demand for the electrification of luxury classic cars, driven by a rebalancing of car collections for a zero emissions future.

Pricing for an electric Rolls-Royce Phantom starts at £500,000, while a Silver Cloud will set you back at least £350,000.

To meet the demand, Lunaz is doubling its workforce at its Technical HQ in Silverstone, England.

Every car by Lunaz is taken back to the bare metal, 3D scanned, weighed and fully restored before the conversion and re-engineering process begins.

The interior scheme tastefully echoes the exterior. For instance, the very finest sustainably-sourced leather is crafted in-house and the original woodwork has been painstakingly restored and finished with a contemporary satin treatment.

The battery pack fitted to each Phantom is the largest of its type in the world at 120kWh, ensuring a range of over 300 miles – significantly more than required for traditional chauffeur-driven use.
