    Aston Martin will convert its heritage cars to electric power

    Written by Ollie Kew

    "We are very aware of the environmental and social pressures that threaten to restrict the use of classic cars in the years to come," says Aston Martin boss Andy Palmer. Good point. How do you solve a problem like futureproofing your classic car? You"ve shelled out squillions on a rare and beautiful Sixties supercar, only to find out that its fifty-year old engine is shortly declared illegal by an eco- and image-conscious government. Are all classic cars helplessly doomed to a life of static display on museums and garages? Aston Martin to the rescue, it would seem. Because the latest scheme from Aston Martin Works is a fully reversible electric powertrain conversion. Engine goes out, batteries and motor goes it. And should you change your mind, just do the switch-a-roo. Genius. Or sacrilege?

    Sacrilege. Change the government and don’t elect any future one that even hints at such stupidity.
