There is this growing trend that involves the electrification of classic cars. Case in point is the latest example of a 1961 Bentley S3 Continental Flying Spur that has been electrified by leading UK electrification propulsion conversion specialist Lunaz.
In line with its goal to expand its presence not only in the UK but globally as well, Lunaz has embarked on electrifying classic Bentleys, catering to some of the world’s most passionate customers. The point behind all this is to allow them to enjoy their classic beauty while making it practical for everyday use.
Moreover, the electric propulsion allows it to be future proof with a zero emissions motor that gives it both power and efficiency, wrapped in a design that has withstood the test of time.
The S3 Continental Flying Spur, for instance, boasts of a contrasting yet harmonious exterior complemented by an equally exquisite two-tone interior. The green and brown hues enhance the classic vibe, interspersed with modern touches such as a subtly integrated infotainment system with navigation, air-conditioning, and even a child seat.
Apart from fitting an electric motor, Lunaz has likewise upgraded and re-engineered brakes and suspension components to allow it to handle the electric motor’s added torque. Despite this, Lunaz promises the same luxurious ride this Grand Tourer is known for.
The Lunaz Bentley S3 is just one of the classic Bentleys that are lined up for electrification. We can expect more of these real soon.
