Aston Martin unveils reversible EV conversion for classics

Aston Martin is developing a reversible electric "cassette" powertrain, allowing its classics to be driven in jurisdictions that outlaw the use of internal combustion engines. To demonstrate the idea, the company has unveiled a proof-of-concept model using the 1970 DB6 Mark II Volante as its starting point. According to the sports car maker, the DB6's new all-electric powertrain is housed within a self-contained cassette, which is placed on the original engine and gearbox mountings.
