You won't wake the neighbours with this electric Aston Martin DB6

Aston Martin says the cassette is a "self-contained cell" that sits on the original engine and transmission mounts. The rival E-Type EV conversion comes with a 295-horsepower electric motor and 40-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery good for about 170 miles of range.

This is a pretty big step for the world of classic auto electric conversions, with customers now able to go to Aston Martin itself to ensure their car's history is preserved post-conversion. The powertrain requires a small screen for power management, which Aston says is "discreetly" located inside the auto.

As for why the company is bothering?

Growth and demand for classic cars is growing and there is also a push to electrification.

The idea for Aston Martin is to ensure that enthusiasts can continue to enjoy its prestigious heritage vehicles by transforming them into models that are sustainable and suited to modern needs, while also respecting the integrity of the original auto.

Aston Martin Works, the auto maker's historic arm, will create a reversible EV powertrain conversion for its classic models.

Enthusiastic fans have also turned Porsche 911s, Ford Mustangs, AC Cobras and Volkswagen Beetles to electric power, keen to blend their classic looks with properly modern underpinnings.

The power control screen located "discretely" inside the cabin.

Tesla parts have even been adapted to power speedboats.

With some major cities already introducing emission-free zones in congested areas, Aston Martin sees its Heritage EV program as a way to future proof its classic cars in a world where cars with emissions may be ruled off the road.

"We have been looking for some time to find a way of protecting our customers' long-term enjoyment of their cars", Spires said. It proved so popular that Jaguar in August confirmed production plans for the conversion, which like Aston Martin's setup is fully reversible.
