I really love this sort of cars rather than supercars no offence. My dream is to own a classic car with modern tech with a bit of old taste like from the 1900s.

Wonderful. If I had the money, a classic car converted to electric power would be my choice. Just imagine an electric 1950s classic Cadilac!

Too many ignorant petrolheads on this channel. What do I expect from Top Gear?
Cars aren't toys! Get a life other than the sound and smell and maintenance of a dumb engine!
Rare cars shouldn't be electrified? Well they shouldn't be on roads, but in museums.

Yep... Well, your really don't have to convert your classic to electric and waste all that money. When driving a classic that which usually isn't driven many miles in a year, which doesn't pollute anywhere near what the creation of one new electric car does. Classic cars with original drive trains will be around forever. Besides ..all electric driven cars are essentially the same, no differences in say.. different engine capacities and sounds, no gears etc = no fun. Electric cars are boring. Keep the classic original. Watch this video on how the ban on ICE cars in the UK and the effect it will have on classic cars.. www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CUA2imRYRM

This is fantastic. I Love the old Bentleys. They
really are some of the most Beautiful Cars on he road.
I had hoped that somebody would be able to take
cars like that and make them Electric, making them
Eco-Friendly. I am very Happy it is Happening.
I hope to have one myself someday.
Thank You for the enjoyable video.

I'm disappointed that he didn't mention if the conversion is reversible, or at the very least what happens to the original drivetrain. In addition to their style these cars also reflected a high level of engineering (for the time) and are, in their way, historical artefacts. One interesting point is that most of these cars started out as playthings for the rich, then eventually (decades later) became useable artefacts maintained by dedicated enthusiasts (usually with deep pockets). Now we're coming full circle and these same cars are again becoming playthings for the rich, who are as disinclined to have to tinker with them as their original owners were.

Beautiful flowing lines. I'm really keen about the motivation. I don't like the entertainment screen/box, should have been covered in walnut (or what ever veneer is on the dashboard ) better still have it retracting from the top of the dash. As it is, sorry but looks like a boy racer made and fitted it. Row of toggle switches for the added features, they look old, not in a classic style. Years ago I put fog lights on my Mk 1 Cortina, bought a couple of universal switches, and yup they looked exactly like the S1. Fantastic car and particularly the concept, just a few design glitches need sorting. Kind Regards

Jeez, don't gimme that b.s. about heavy batteries. Have you ever notices how heavy an 8 cilinder 7 liter motor is with drive train? That is gone, then. And if they put electric motors in each of the four wheels, there are hardly any moving parts. Wear and tear is almost zero. Compare that to the mess with oil, gasoline, gaskets, differential, gears and all that mess. When people got from horse carts to motor cars, they were happy to be ridden of the manure. Now we are happy to be ridden of this oil leak, grease and gasoline mess.

The car is a Bentley S2 Continental Flying Spur. It is not an S1 or an S3.

I admire Lunaz’s concept and the way they utilised traditional Bentley switchgear and gauges for modern controls and read outs, but the upholstery is absolutely sup par. It is incorrect hide (should be Vaumol, which is available) and the pleats are sloppy and flat (they should be plump and individually stuffed). The front door handles should point forward up at a 45° angle.

If Lunaz can ever get the details right, particularly with regards to upholstery and trim, they’ll have my vote. At this time, I remain disappointed — their upholstery and woodwork in the James Young Phantom V was absolutely awful, and they even got the fine lines wrong. That’s inexcusable, particularly as period brochures and publicity photographs are available which clearly show how the cars were originally done.

Dont really know what to think about it. I think its a waste of time. electirc vehicles are already sort of outdated. to be fair, hydrogen might be more interesting, as it is more sustainable. A classic bentley should keeps its old engine, or be converted to a hydrogen powered car.

If you have too much money but don't want to look American (To a European every rich American looks like a trailer trash person who has won the lottery in regards to eye for class and style) this is the car to drive.

In these Stately Old Girls, it was never about the engine - thát was merely there to drive the body - that's why Rolls Royce never even bothered with "performance" figures stating them as 'adequate'. Só this cars entire character fits an electric motor like a glove - SUPREMELY STATELY

These cars were beautifully engineered in the first place, without peer.
Only the poorly maintained or those repaired on a makeshift basis "leak oil everywhere".
Not dissing EV's but let us compare apples with apples.
Note the speedometer needle flopping all over the place through the test drive.
For the money that is being spent that is not a good indicator of the underlying quality of the job - front of house stuff. I hope I am wrong.
Folks these days seem to be more taken in by rear seat butt warming gimmicks and ipodery than by the beautiful looks and function of cars such as these.
Sorry, but I mark this reviewer as a lightweight.

This makes perfect sense. For decades Rolls, Bentley and other luxury cars have attempted to make their cars smoother, quieter and vibrationless. Building complex V8 and V12 engines that lacked character, were polluting, uneconomical and would break down when you sneezed at it. What better than replacing it properly with an electric motor? I fully understand some of the comments that it doesn't work for all classic cars. It wouldn't work for classics where the engine is the hero, inline 6 and V8 rumbles of a Jag or Mustang. But in a Citroen DS or Landrover Defender is improves the car significantly.

“I’m astonished that Bentley and RR haven’t taken the plunge and released a pure electric model” Well, I’m not. People who buy that sort of cars simply don't follow trends, they impose it. They are not going to buy an appliance, especially since electric cars are becoming mainstream and mundane. Also, they don't need cars that are simple to maintain, they have people for that. They don’t need an electric, they are above that sort of needs.

I am sure they might convert a new car to electric thus saving a full restoration? A new Morgan plus 6 as an example, or an Aston Martin Vantage? They even think of going near a Lamborghini Miura or a Ferrari 250GT , then I'll call in a hitman...
