David Beckham presented his son Brooklyn an all-electric 1954 Jaguar XK140 as a wedding gift. The all-electric Jaguar XK140 is the result of the conversion of Lunaz, which is 10 percent owned by David Beckham.
Lunaz is an EV conversion company based in Silverstone UK. Lunaz said that the all-electric Jaguar XK140 conversion project involved thousands of hours of work by a strong team of 120 craftsmen, designers and electric vehicle technicians.
The all-electric Jaguar XK140 features a light blue paint finish with the cabin covered in light beige upholstery. Lunaz said the electric technology in the car was carefully hidden in order to maintain the classic feel of the converted vehicle.
Lunaz says that the cabin of the 1954 Jaguar XK140 all-electric mirrors the design of the original Jaguar but with minor tweaks to allow for the latest features such as battery charge levels.
In addition to the EV powertrain, the company says it has also upgraded the brakes, suspension and steering from the original for everyday use.
Lunaz itself launched its first car in 2019. Lunaz with EV conversion technology established itself by bringing the world’s first fully electric Range Rover, Bentley, Rolls-Royce to the market.
Lunaz says prices for classic vehicle EV conversions start at £350,000 excluding tax with a long waiting list until January 2024.
