'A company that specializes in converting classic cars into electric vehicles
has completed a project for Hollywood star Jason Momoa.

Electrogenic, based in Kidlington, has transformed the actor's Rolls-Royce
Phantom II into a fully electric car.

The 1929 Phantom II, originally powered by 7.7-litre straight-six engine, now
has a "whisper-quiet" electric powertrain.

Jason Momoa said Electrogenic was the "perfect fit" to carry out the project.

The Aquaman star, who has also featured in Game of Thrones, said: "In order
to pull off this dream project, I had to find the right partner.

"I needed a team that would appreciate the storied history of this car while
updating its technology."

He praised Electrogenic for "honouring vintage cars", by making them electric
"without losing any of the vehicle's character".

The cars original petrol engine and gearbox were removed and replaced by
batteries, which have been "precision-integrated" into the existing structure
of the car.

Steve Drummond, the director of Electrogenic, said the car had been a "labour
of love for everyone" at the company.'
