Interesting that Jaguar/Landrover have just announced the creation of a "rebuild facility" in Savannah Georgia to provide "services" to the north american market. Maybe theres electric XKE's and Series 1's in our future!!!

So presumably the new James Bond Astons use a new shell etc. as they can’t be used on the road?
I wouldn’t want an electric E type anyway, as with the M3W the joy is in the noise, engine, vibrations etc.!

It begs the question though on what they will do with all those straight sixes & gearboxes.

Whats to stop MCC buying up trads and electrifying their performance rather than the power plant.

As painfully as it is to look at the picture of my one time dream, if this is what it is coming to then rather than have nothing, I guess I would go electric and perhaps put a few fag packets in the spokes like we used to when we were kids.


Here for a good time not a long time!!

Mixed thoughts here.
A true classic icon spoiled.
Or...
An inevitable change to meet today’s trends.
Or
I can so I will. Makes me look eco-cool with style.

A couple of years ago I was washing the Mog on the drive. A car stopped and the driver shouted over...
Nice car.
All electric, converted.
I was confused but as he pulled away just a whining sound. He had converted from ice to battery. The car? Renault 4! No other details and not seen it since.
