Classic cars are not on their way out.

This is a pretty big step for the world of classic vehicle electric conversions, with customers now able to go to Aston Martin itself to ensure their car's history is preserved post-conversion.

The EV powertrain conversion is the flagship product of Aston's new Heritage EV program, and is being used to "future-proof" its classic fleet against future increased emissions restrictions.

The self-contained battery cell sits on the original engine and gearbox's mounts and is reversible, meaning the modifications can be taken back out should the owner want.

Using knowledge acquired by Aston Martin during the final phase development of the Rapide E and future planning of the all-new range of Lagondas, the Aston Martin Works' Heritage EV conversion will see production versions receive the EV cassette which includes key components from the Rapide E programme.

What the brand calls "umbilical cords" are then fed from the main power unit to drive the car's electrical systems.

Given the historical significance of these collectors cars it's vital any EV conversion is sympathetic to the integrity of the original vehicle.

"We have been looking for some time to find a way of protecting our customers' long-term enjoyment of their cars".

The company expects to begin offering conversions to customers in 2019.
