Are you a Vintage Car lover? I am one! I am fascinated by their beauty! The only thing that is the cons of buying them is that they are not very good with emissions. One guy decided to change it all!
UK-based, ex-fintech entrepreneur Justin Lunny innovated the idea to bring Vintage Luxury Cars into the electrified future! He is restoring old vintage cars into electric vintage cars.
His company ionic cars™ re-conceives the most stunning, elegant, and alluring motorcars the world has ever seen.
They make iconic cars relevant to the world today. They do so by upgrading each one to offer exceptional luxury, high performance and zero-emission electric power.
That makes Vintage Car lovers have more pleasure and no guilt!
We spoke to him about how he got this wonderful idea. He mentioned that he began thinking about the idea after he had kids of his own. It was at that moment that truly got him pondering the kind of world they wanted to live in.
There was also speculation that the classic cars may no longer be road-legal within 15 years if there are changes in the emissions legislation. He realized that there is an unfulfilled need in the market. He can capture it by helping collectors appreciate their prized possessions with no hassle and significantly lower maintenance costs.
Just to give an example, A classic car can emit up to 4559 Kg Carbon dioxide (CO2) per year. The same car, once reconceived by Ionic Cars, would give zero emissions! Yes, you read that, right! That's such a huge difference!
The Mercedes-Benz 230 SL, commonly called “Pagoda,” was constructed from 1963 through 1971. It casts an enchanting spell upon its viewers. Its open-topped brilliance makes you want to buy it right away! The ionic pagoda was gorgeously restored into electric Mercedes 230sl by Ionic Cars.
Look at some of the specifications of the Ionic Restoration.
· They added a Brand-new 57Kwh battery pack which has advanced battery management and temperature control
· They also added a Brand-new OEM-grade 3 phase AC motor
· The gearbox was upgraded with a Brand-new custom single speed 1.80:1 gearbox
· Regenerative braking
· Custom designed dials, which display vital information and at the same time maintain the ‘original' appearance
They take care of the needs of the future eco-conscious owners of these cars. For example, They can have vegan leather finishes instead of real leather finishes. Other possible customization options include: Matching luggage, Heated seats, or
All restored models would come with a 160-mile range, upgraded performance, and regenerative braking.
We asked him about the hesitation that any collectors may have – If the electrification would “ravage” their classics. Ionic cars mentioned that collectors can have complete peace of mind because it is not just minimally intrusive on the original design, but it is completely reversible. Wow! Isn't that something!
He further explained, “An ionic car will always have its manufacturer's soul,” ionic cars says. “Our subtle branding takes nothing from the original beauty of these iconic vehicles. Each masterpiece is respectfully restored using sustainable, modern materials, and high-quality finishing techniques.”
As the motto of ionic cars puts it, “iconic past, ionic future.”
