To celebrate the wedding of his eldest son, David Beckham gifted his son Brooklyn with a £350,000 all-electric Jaguar XK140 Open Two Seater by Lunaz.
As an investor in the Silverstone-based electric classic car company, Beckham commissioned the bespoke conversion, a project which required thousands of hours of work from the company’s 120 strong team.
This 1954 XK140 is dressed in light blue, with each Lunaz customer able to name their unique colour. However, Beckham requested the colour of the fully-electric XK140 to be kept secret.
The fully restored and upcycled interior is presented in a light cream, and features a collection of dials and switches that reflect the Jaguar’s original design but with subtle updates to provide information on the battery level and to operate contemporary functions. The driver will also benefit from uprated brakes, suspension and steering.
David Lorenz, Founder & CEO of Lunaz, said: “In creating this beautiful, electrified Jaguar XK140, we are honoured to bridge the gap between David Beckham’s professional life, where he is an investor in Lunaz and his family life. This remarkable car is the perfect gift to his son Brooklyn and daughter-in-law, Nicola on their wedding day. In every respect, this extraordinary electric classic car by Lunaz symbolises a bright, positive future.”
In June 2021, Beckham announced that he was investing in Lunaz, and since then the company has grown its workforce by 200% and is soon to establish the UK’s largest remanufacturing and electrification facility adjacent to its current home on the Silverstone Technology Park. This takes Lunaz’ total manufacturing footprint to 210,000 sq/ft making it the largest company within the globally renowned Silverstone Technology Cluster by space and employees.
The company recently announced the conclusion of a private investment round through 2021. This included the introduction of Beckham, the Barclay, Reuben and Dallal families as major shareholders.
