Anything the Beckhams do always generates noise and buzz around it, but this wasn’t the case when they cruised through Miami’s exclusive Palm Beach because the Jaguar in question has been electrified and re-engineered by car restoration experts, Lunaz, a company that Beckham himself recently invested in and a winner of one of GQ’s e-Car awards earlier this year.
The Beckham’s new Jaguar XK140 Lunaz is arguably the most high-profile example of a sustainable car restoration trend, which sees companies like Lunaz rip out the engines of classic cars, replacing them with electric motors and zero exhaust emissions batteries.
David Lorenz, the founder and CEO of Lunaz said that in creating this electrified Jaguar XK140, they are happy to be bridging “the gap between Beckham’s professional life, where he is an investor in Lunaz and his family life.”
Thousands of hours of work went into the making of such vehicles, which are built by Electric Vehicle (EV) technicians entirely in-house at the home of Lunaz in Silverstone, England.
With fuel prices unlikely to drop, will more car enthusiasts switch to electric?
