The news of the United Kingdom's decision to bring forward the banning of petrol and diesel-powered cars to 2035, and by extension not include hybrid vehicles, has paved the way for electric cars to be in the mix sooner rather than later. 

Of course, this does not mean that British motorists can't keep their petrol or diesel cars. But can you imagine what it would look like if six of the most iconic cars in history were brought back to life and redesigned in an electric era? 

WhoCanFixMyCar.com has six renders, where the iconic shape of the car has been maintained but electric styling has been added, such as the circular headlights, wing cameras that project a video of the side of the car into the cockpit and futuristic spoke alloy wheels.



Which one of these classic cars would you like to see be electrified ? Take your pick below and email us.


The six iconic cars that have been electrified in their own way are:

• Aston Martin DB5

• Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic

• Jaguar E-Type

• Mercedes Benz 300 SL Gullwing
