Born from a passion to create beautiful cars that capture your emotions, epitomise style, with a modern twist
As a motoring enthusiast, Peter has an affection for British sports cars having owned many MGs, Triumphs and Jaguars himself over the years. As the MD of restoration company RBW Classic & Sports Cars, Peter could see that these vehicles faced an uncertain future in the modern world. He saw the potential for an electric car that had all the benefits of a modern vehicle but with the aesthetic appeal of a beautiful classic car. And so RBW Electric Cars evolved.
From the outset, he wanted to create an electric system that could be sympathetically applied to different classic cars without degradation to the car and with a clear focus on safety first.
Peter wrote to a number of companies and had a response from one of the World leaders in automotive EV solutions. Zytek Automotive, owned by Continental AG, operate alongside Continental Engineering Services (CES).
Having worked with the four time Formula E champions, CES has a long history of EV development. Perfect!
CES design, build and manufacture components, electric motors and safety systems for many of the top car manufacturers on the planet. After sharing the RBW design and ethos, Continental Engineering Services was engaged by RBW to develop the RBW Electric car system.
This was just the beginning…
