David Beckham Gifts Son with Electric 1954 Jaguar XK140 to Mark His Wedding

1,619

Lunaz investor, David Beckham, has presented his son, Brooklyn and his daughter-in-law, Nicola, with an all-electric Jaguar XK140 Open Two Seater (OTS) by Lunaz as a gift to mark their wedding in Palm Beach, FL, USA.

This clean-air classic, bespoke commissioned by Beckham, is the product of thousands of hours of work from the company’s 120 strong teams of craftspeople, designers and Electric Vehicle (EV) technicians and was built entirely in-house at the home of Lunaz in Silverstone, England.

This 1954 XK140 is appointed in a beautiful light blue. Every Lunaz customer is allowed to name their unique colour. At the client’s request, this particular colour’s name will remain confidential.

The fully restored and upcycled interior is presented in a light cream, offering contemporary expression to the car’s classic aesthetic. Like every classic by Lunaz, modern technology is discreetly hidden. Dials and switches faithfully reflect the original Jaguar 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, making this most celebrated British automotive icon a car that can be driven and enjoyed every day.

In June 2021, Beckham announced that he invested in Lunaz, Britain’s fastest-growing clean-tech company. Since then, the company has expanded rapidly, growing its workforce by 200% and soon establishing the UK’s largest remanufacturing and electrification facility adjacent to its current home in 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.

This expansion will see Lunaz enter the total production of Upcycled Electric Vehicles (UEVs) for industrial applications. Indeed, the company recently unveiled the world’s first fully electrified and up-cycled refuse truck. This approach responds to the growing global requirement to plot a more sustainable course to transition passenger and industrial vehicles to clean air power trains.

By upcycling and electrifying, and returning the vehicle to a factory-new standard, Lunaz saves 80% of the embedded carbon versus replacing it with new. This also saves significant capital, making upcycling a cleaner, better and greener route to rebalancing global fleets to electric powertrains.

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 significant shareholders.
