Lunaz takes an innovative approach to electric cars. It reengineers, upgrades and electrifies some of the world's most beautiful classic cars, including Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguar and Range Rover. The vehicles are retrofitted with sustainable luxury materials, re-engineered for green, clean electric battery power and digitalized for driving.
The company was founded in 2019 and is headquartered in Silverstone, UK. The engines are designed, engineered and manufactured under the leadership of three time Formula 1 world champion winner John Hilton.
