VINTAGE VOLTAGE TV Series
17th February 2022 @ 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until 24th February 2022
In the brand-new season of VINTAGE VOLTAGE, Richard ‘Moggy’ Morgan and his team of cutting-edge mechanics continue their revolutionary work, taking iconic cars of the past and giving them a new lease of life for the future. With owners wanting more power, more performance but with less cost to their pocket and to the planet, the solution is electric.
Master mechanic ‘Moggy’ and the team at Electric Classic Cars are global leaders in electrifying classic cars. Even still, they face a huge challenge as they re-engineer these master motors with 21st century power and technology all the while trying to keep the looks and appeal of the original. With some cars more than 50 years old it’s never going to be easy.
Classic cars are in ‘Moggy’s’ DNA. He has owned, restored and raced various classics since the age of 17. But working in the energy efficiency industry for the past 20 years, helping some of the world’s largest organisations reduce their carbon emissions, his ambition is to now make them more reliable and more ecological to drive than ever.
The brand-new season sees the team develop a prototype for two entrepreneurs who want to build a new business selling electric Porsche 911s. Moggy creates a Mini, with ten-times more power than the old petrol version, for enthusiastic owner Simon who wants to hand it on to his daughters. And the childhood dreams of businessman Leighton are fulfilled when the team convert an underpowered DeLorean to run on electricity and become the ‘coolest commuter car on the planet’.
Each episode follows the dramatic transformation of a classic car, from the last petrol-powered rev to the first key turn of the high-tech, electric motor. The new season features a Porsche 911, DeLorean, Mini, Land Rover and VW Camper Van. Every project is unique, so the team will face tricky restoration problems and complex design and engineering challenges while having to deliver a stunning motor, on budget, for the client.
